Anushka to Kareena: How celebs are normalising pregnancy shoots

Kareena Kapoor Pregnancy Yoga

Soon-to-be mother Kareena Kapoor Khan is the latest celebrity to proudly flaunt her pregnant stomach during a yoga session. On Instagram, the actor shared a series of pictures performing different asanas in workout clothes that embraced her baby bump. “A little bit of yoga. A little bit of calm,” she wrote in the caption accompanying her shoot. The baby, due to arrive later this year, will be the actor’s second one with husband Saif Ali Khan. 

Kapoor joins film industry colleague Anushka Sharma who, during her pregnancy in 2020, did not shy away from putting her growing body on display while performing yoga. In a post dated December 1, the new mother could be seen doing a handstand (shirshasana) supported by husband Virat Kohli. Read more on that here.  

Kapoor’s recent pregnancy shoot is gathering praise for laying bare her pregnant stomach, tackling an issue that comes with a stigma attached to it. Sharma, who did a similar shoot back in December, was also heaped with compliments.

Much like Sharma did, Kapoor too has traced her pregnancy journey on social media, giving fans and followers a peek into her life as an expecting mother. The 40-year-old is well known for promoting relaxed clothing like kaftans, something she has been boosting especially during her pregnancy. 

Kapoor, in October last year, shared a picture receiving an oil massage from her mother, actor Babita. She wrote, “Maa ke haath ka… maalish.” 

Kapoor is set to star in the second installment of film Veere Di Wedding later this year.
