A CTORS play an important part in everyone’s life, and so it is important to set right examples for people, says Kareena Kapoor Khan, citing how she did the same when she continue dwith herwork through out her pregnancy and even after delivering her child. She believes it is her individuality that sets her apart. “As actors, we play a very important part in everyone’s life.

We are considered role models and it is necessary on our part to set the right examples for people. I’m someone who has always lived from the heart. I did not want to do things because everyone else was doing them. “If I am comfortable working in a certain way, then I do so with all my conviction.

I have always followed what I believe in and it is my individuality which sets me apart. Everything I have in life, Ihave wanted it for a long time and I have worked very hard forit,” Kareena told IANS,when asked how important it is for actors to have their own individuality, break the norms and lead life by their own rules to make a mark in today’s Bollywood. Kareena embraced motherhoood with the birth of Taimur with husband Saif Ali Khan in December 2016. She is now a part of designer Anita Dongre’s #AND Impact intitiave.

I do my own thing.The fact that I was working throughout my pregnancy and that I continue to work even after having a child,should inspire a lot more women to find that balance between their personal and professional lives. “It’s all a part of the journey that has made me who I am and brought me where I am right now,” said the actress.
