There were reports that the actress will go on a maternity leave once she finishes shooting for 'Veere Di Wedding'.
Kareena said, "We are in 2016, not in the 1800s. Probably, even at that time, people were way more civilized and normal than the way the media is behaving and speculating now."

Mumbai: As soon as Saif Ali Khan confirmed his wife Kareena Kapoor Khan's pregnancy, the news spread like wildfire with several speculations associated to it; but looks like the would be-mommy is disappointed with the news.

In an interview to Hindustan Times, the actress expressed her displeasure over the news and the speculations. She said, "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 back off, and stop treating me any different than 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."

 

She went on to add, "We are in 2016, not in the 1800s. Probably, even at that time, people were way more civilized and normal than the way the media is behaving and speculating now. I'm just fed up of people making it (her pregnancy) to be a death of some sort. In fact, it should be a message to a lot of people that marriage or having a family has absolutely nothing to do with my career."

For the uninitiated, there were speculations that Kareena, who is due in December, will push forward the shoot of her next 'Veere Di Wedding'. However, the makers soon released a statement stating that they will begin filming from August. The actress will shoot for some magazine covers by October before she goes on maternity leave.
