As a woman in Bollywood, you're often warned about a relatively shorter shelf life. Men may continue to play mainstream heroes way past their prime but as an actress, you need to bid goodbye to your career, the moment you hit 30 or settle for matrimony, whichever comes first. It's sexist, yes but who's to challenge the ways of the big, bad world of Bollywood, right? Thankfully, we have enough and more women now, breaking the norm in more ways than one. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been storming Cannes year after year, post marriage and motherhood alike. And looks like, Kareena Kapoor Khan is changing things around, back home in India now.
Even before she makes history by shooting for a film 6 months into her pregnancy, a feat no actress in Bollywood has achieved so far, as she starts shooting for Veere Di Wedding sometime in October this year, she's already shattering some other notions about Bollywood actresses, this time on the ramp.
She's the first Bollywood actress to walk the ramp as a pregnant woman in India!
How often have you seen a pregnant actress take the fashion police by storm? Kareena looked like a million bucks as she took to the ramp for designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, dressed in a shimmery dull grey lehenga for the grand finale of Lakme Fashion Week.

She's the first Bollywood actress to walk the ramp as a pregnant woman. How's that for a new record?
Watching her burn the ramp, seated in the front row were Deepika Padukone, Bipasha Basu and Kareena's elder sister Karisma Kapoor.
