Soha Ali Khan on her pregnancy: Kunal and I are both clueless about parenthood


Soha Ali Khan is brimming over with joy, and you can’t miss the pregnancy glow on her face. Calling it an “exciting phase and a big deal”, the actor says, “Kunal and I, we’re both very new to this. We always get very nervous talking about things that are so personal, but we’ve made an announcement and Kunal came out with a statement as well confirming the news. We still have a while to go, so we’re just looking for positive vibes ad blessings from everyone around us.”

Asked about Kunal’s reaction when she shared with him that she was pregnant, Soha, who met us in Delhi, quips, “I’m not telling anybody what he said. That’s very private. Actually, I don’t want to talk about it too much, apart from saying that we both are clueless about being parents.”

As an actor, Soha, 38, has always been compared to her actor brother Saif Ali Khan. She’s not being spared in her pregnancy — now the comparison is with sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor Khan’s journey to motherhood. Saif and Kareena had their baby son, named Taimur Ali Khan, last December.
In spite of the comparisons being made, Soha maintains that she’s doing things according to her comfort level. “When I don’t feel I have the energy to do something, I don’t do it. I’m not taking on too much because this is a priority and everything else takes a backseat. When it comes to heels, I carry my flats, too, in the car.  at this stage, it’s alright [to wear heels] but later when you are worried about being off-balance, that’s when you have to, of course, be comfortable.”On this, Soha says, “Nobody wants comparisons, because everybody is different — be it working or dressing up. Some are required to rest more; some are healthy and sail through their pregnancy. It’s unfair to make comparisons because every pregnancy is different and there’s no right or wrong.”
