Mumbai: Kareena Kapoor is much too happy these days. The actress, who was recently seen hugging her rival Priyanka Chopra at an event, is all geared up for celebrating Christmas. The actress is extremely gung ho about the festival as she makes sure that Christmas is one festival she spends with her mother and close friends.
For the last 10 years, the actress has been celebrating the festival with her mother. And this time round too she had made advance preparations to make sure she doesn’t miss out on the festival.
As per sources, while giving dates to Shah Rukh Khan for ‘Ra.One’, Bebo had requested for a day off on the 25th. And sure enough, he obliged.
Confirming the news a source said, “Kareena’s mother Babita believes in Christmas and both mother and daughter make it a point to attend the midnight mass every year.”
Talking about the importance this holiday holds for her, Kareena said, “Ever since I have started shooting for films I have been celebrating Christmas with my mother. It’s a big thing for mom and I’m always with her. All our family members get together on this day. I can shoot on my birthdays or on New Year’s Eve but never on Christmas. So, when this schedule was being planned, I told Shah Rukh about this one day and he understood. He has been kind enough to give me a day off. I am looking forward to the midnight mass and the whole celebrations.”
