Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is gearing to have her first child this December, could well have the baby in London. According to close friends of Saif and Kareena, the plan is to slip out of the city and go somewhere far away from prying eyes. A source close to the family says, “The paparazzi is clicking close-ups of her baby bump. There are too many prying eyes here in Mumbai, making her feel odd rather than special.” In fact, recently, the actress even lost her cool while speaking on the subject. “I’m pregnant, not a corpse. And what maternity break? It’s the most normal thing on earth to produce a child. It is high time the media backed off. Stop treating me any different from what I ever was. Anybody who is bothered shouldn’t work with me… but my work goes on as is, like always. Stop making it a national casualty.”
London, according to close sources, is where the Pataudi parivar spends its maximum time when away from India. Saif and his sister Soha Ali Khan have both spent their formative years there. Their mother Sharmila Tagore too has fond feelings for the city as her husband, the late Nawab Pataudi loved spending time there. “Sharmilaji herself spends a lot of her time in London and has dvised Kareena and Saif that London could be a less stressful option for them to welcome their first child,” the source adds.
