Kareena is the Biggest Example of a Brave Modern Woman, Says Anil Kapoor

"I wanted my kids to lead a normal, simple life and concentrate on their education. I am not a protective father. I think parents need to be protective when they are kids but now they are grown-ups. They can take their own decisions," said Anil Kapoor

Actor Anil Kapoor said that he is not a protective father.
The 59-year-old actor said that he is confident that his children, Sonam, Rhea and Harshvardhan, can take care of themselves.
"I wanted my kids to lead a normal, simple life and concentrate on their education. I am not a protective father. I think parents need to be protective when they are kids but now they are grown-ups. They can take their own decisions. The truth is, we are not going to stay with them forever and they have to look after themselves and they are doing it very nicely," Mr Kapoor told PTI.
The Welcome Back actor is happy to see the way his daughter Sonam deals with fame and hopes his son, who will be making his acting debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Mirzya, is able to do the same.
"I am really happy with the way Sonam deals with the media and everything. Soon, Harshvardhan will also face it and I am sure he will also adjust well to the celebrity status," he said.
Rhea has made her career in Bollywood as a producer. She has co-produced projects like Aisha and Khoobsurat.
Rhea's next film Veere Di Wedding which stars Sonam along with Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania, will be directed by Shashanka Ghosh.
Kareena, who is expecting her first child with husband, actor Saif Ali Khan, will be shooting for the film in August.
"The times are changing in Bollywood. Now even actresses are a big a star as actors. They are getting paid equal and even more in some cases. The biggest example of today's brave modern woman is Kareena Kapoor. She is pregnant, but the script is ready and she is doing my daughter's film. What else can be the biggest change than this? It is a very brave and great decision on Kareena and Rhea's part," said Anil Kapoor.
