Mumbai, Aug 29 (IANS) For actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, her sister Karisma has always given her the best life lessons. Now that Kareena is expecting her first child, her older sibling has suggested to her to stay away from everyone’s advice and to follow her instinct.
“Well, my advice (to Kareena) is, ‘Don’t take advice from anyone because everyone has some sort of advice to give to a mother-to-be’. I think you should just learn from own instinct and experiences,” Karisma, a mother of two, told IANS when asked if she has given some tips to her younger sister during this phase of her life.
Karisma has earlier penned a book, “My Yummy Mummy Guide: From Getting Pregnant to losing all the weight and beyond”, in which she shared advice ranging from finding the perfect maternity outfits to decorating children’s rooms and juggling work with motherhood to even planning the most stylish kiddie parties.
Kareena is said to be due for delivery in December with her first child with actor-husband Saif Ali Khan.
Breaking convention, Kareena took to the ramp for designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee at the finale of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2016 here on Sunday night. She was glowing.
Karisma said proudly that her younger sister has always believed in setting trends.
“Kareena is always a trendsetter. Right from her first movie ‘Refugee’ to doing films like ‘Chameli’ so early in her career till now, walking the runway in this phase… I am excited,” said the actress who was seen cheering for Kareena from the front row of the show, sitting next to Deepika Padukone.
Talking about fashion, Karisma says that she has never taken the pressure of looking good.
“I think I never take the pressure. Over the years, I have evolved and my style is quite significant in the sense that I love classic cuts and I love a sophisticated chic look, so I’ve always stuck to that for so many years,” Karisma told IANS.
Also, comfort is the key for her.
“I think you have to be comfortable in what you wear. If you are uncomfortable, people will be uncomfortable seeing you. So I think comfort is very important. I believe in what I wear. I wear many key pieces which I have had in my cupboard, so it’s always nice to mix the old and the new,” she said.
