Kareena posted a monochrome photograph on Instagram. In the image, she sits on a sofa in a thigh high slit outfit.

“I’m waiting… (heart emoji),” she wrote.

The caption seems cryptic and seems like she awaits the arrival of her second baby.

Kareena’s best friends Malaika Arora and Amrita Arora too dropped comments on the picture.

Malaika wrote: “Am also waiting …….”

“I’m also waiting ….” Amrita said.

Kareena, who is married to actor Saif Ali Khan, gave birth to their first-born, Taimur, in 2016. She is currently expecting their second baby, and she often shares photographs of her baby bump on social media.

Kareena and Saif had announced on August 12 that they are expecting their second child. The actress recently completed her shoot for the upcoming film “Laal Singh Chaddha” co-starring Aamir Khan in Delhi.

Raveena then joined the “Kya karu” viral meme and made a video on it. She posted the video on Instagram, where the actress and her team are seen grooving on the viral song “Kya karu”, made by social media user Yashraj Mukhate, who gained fandom after he created a musical rap out of the dialogue “Rasode mein kaun tha” from the popular television show “Saath Nibhaana Saathiyaa”.

“Ok, utterly corny, but there are some that I can’t resist, just can’t kya karu ? kya karu? thank you @reemapandit and @anita_matkar for your super supportive performances,” Raveena expressed about her video.

“I have encouraged young parents around me to enrol their girls into learning self defence skills so they don’t find themselves dependent on men around them. I want every young girl to know that she is her own superhero. Beyond the strength of Wonder Woman and Bat Woman, lies within her the inner strength to fight against every adversity that comes her way,” says Mrunal.

The actress spoke about superheroes and young girls in the context of the animation series “Priya’s Mask”, where she has lent her voice.

The series has been named a ‘Gender Equality Champion’ by UN Women. Created by US-based media house Rattapallax founder, documentary filmmaker, and technologist Ram Devineni, “Priya’s Mask” is written by Shubhra Prakash, with illustrations and animation by Syd Fini, Hamid Bahrami and Neda Kazemifar.

This particular series marks the protagonist Priya imagined as a gutsy girl. Set against the backdrop of Jodhpur, the narrative re-tells the escapades of an eight-year-old Meena and her working mother who nurses Covid-19 infected patients and their cumulative sacrifices. The series also has Vidya Balan lending her voice.

Talking about voicing an animated character, Mrunal says: “I have never had the good fortune of being taught about powerful women as a young girl. Our heroes were limited and I craved to see more women in places of authority. Priya is a survivor and a fighter. I am making my nieces and nephews take to the comic series with equal gusto because feminism isn’t just for girls. It is as important to prepare our boys for these powerful women.”

This year, Mrunal will be seen in “Jersey” and “Toofan”. (IANS)
