Will continue to do one film at a time: Kareena
Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan says motherhood will not slow her career down and she will continue to do one film at a time.
The 36-year-old star married Saif Ali Khan in 2012 and the couple welcomed their first child in December last year.
"Even after I got married it was always about doing one film at a time. I like to finish one film, take a break and then take up another film. Both Saif and I are trying to maintain that even after our baby is born," Kareena told in an interview here.
When asked if there has been a change in selection of role post becoming a mother, the actress says, "I don't think being a mother has anything to do with choosing a script at all. If you like a script you do it. These are two different things.
"Priorities change every time in life as first I got married... then I have a family. Multi-tasking is something I have always done and it is something women understand and learn to do."
On the work front, she would be seen next in "Veere Di Wedding" which also features Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania in the lead roles.
She will start shooting for the film from May.
"There is no particular prep that I will have to do except hitting the gym and that's the only focus," she says, adding, she has been reading a lot of scripts but has not given a go ahead to any film.
When asked about being replaced by Parineeti Chopra in Rohit Shetty's hit "Golmaal" franchise, Kareena says she could not sign "Golmaal 4" as she was not in the stage to begin a film before May.

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

Effect of monetary policy on risk, stability and financial crises
The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress. This may reopen a number of fundamental fault lines in modern macroeconomic thinking between theories that treat the financial system as irrelevant, or, at least, not central to the understanding of economic outcomes, and those that reserve a central role for financial intermediation.
The return trip
It took us over five hours, drenched in rain, walking through treacherous ratomato sluggishly. It should not have taken more than two hours in a normal day. It was the cruellest irony that no sooner did we reach Panchkhal and sat at the Pipal Chautari to rest, than the bus we had left behind, arrived with people in the bus bursting with laughter on seeing us.
Prospects for Nepali talents in the Diaspora
When Indu, a Nepali American teen studying in Virginia, asked Panta whether she could inspire Nepali youngsters into music industry and convince their parents to consider Nepali music as a path to professionalism, the female heartthrob of Nepali music could not fully convince her.
Traffic Police in Kathmandu
As busy and hassling as the traffic system in Kathmandu is, the Traffic Police here have to handle an equally strenuous job. Over 1,400 traffic officers in and around the Kathmandu Valley battle against the pestering traffic and air pollution each day.
Menstrual taboo outdated
I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
