I’m not a born model, says Kareena Kapoor Khan



I’m a born actress, not a born model, Kareena Kapoor Khan said as she shimmered in a heavily embellished 30 kg golden ensemble at a couture gala on Thursday night. Kareena said she felt “glamorous” and “beautiful” in the Falguni and Shane Peacock lehenga with a Parisian touch at the gala.

“I guess I am just a born actress, and not a born model. So when all the models were walking in front of me, apart from the fact that they are so tall and gorgeous, I realised that it’s so tough and I was so nervous,” Kareena said.

The “Veere Di Wedding” actress stepped on the ramp with poise despite the 30 kg lehenga, keeping her jewellery minimalistic with just earrings, and letting the bespoke outfit with a Parisian vibe grab the limelight. As she leaned against the cut-out of a crescent, Kareena lent a dreamy aura to the show, where models then took a final walk.

“I have walked the ramp for nearly a decade and more, but probably this is the first time I am wearing an outfit that weighs 30 kg. But if it wasn’t for Falguni and Shane Peacock, I wouldn’t have done it for anyone else. It’s making me feel glamorous… But I know it’s really really tough when you wear these heavy outfits throughout. But I am looking beautiful,” Kareena said.
