Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan says her sole condition for marrying actor Saif Ali Khan was that she would work all her life and he would support her.
In her upcoming film, ‘Ki and Ka’ Kareena will be seen as a career-oriented woman, while Arjun Kapoor will play the role of a supportive house husband doing household chores, including cooking. The film is directed by R Balki.
“Today is Women’s Day and you equate women with mother earth, mother Mary…they have the power. They have extra power and so they can multi-task,” Kareena told reporters at a promotional event of “Ki and Ka”. Kapoor cooks for Kareena Kapoor on Women’s Day
