Actor Kareena Kapoor welcomed her second child, Jeh Ali Khan, in February. She was also working on the Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha when she was pregnant, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Kareena talked about the experience of filming and how supportive co-star Aamir Khan was throughout the shoot.

"100 percent credit goes to Aamir Khan for being absolutely wonderful and taking security measures, not knowing what Covid is and to have an artist who is five months pregnant. I give him all the credit for looking after me and having faith in our entire crew. We used to continuously test them."

Kareena revealed that she would travel from husband Saif Ali Khan’s house in Pataudi to Delhi every day for the shoot, and they mostly shot late nights. Kareena added that she was concerned about the impact her shooting schedule would have on her baby and was ‘constantly in touch with her gynaecologist’.

"I was constantly in touch with my gynaecologist, asking him if the baby would be safe and if I am working and I am not getting rest, how it is affecting my baby. So, he was like if you are getting eight hours of sleep in the day, you can be working late in the night. He just said that keep washing your hands, wear the mask and keep faith and that's exactly what I did, and it was a brilliant shoot,” Kareena told NDTV.

"So, my son is practically in Laal Singh Chaddha. He is in the romantic song with Aamir and me,” she joked.

In April, Aamir had talked about the experience of shooting for Laal Singh Chaddha amidst the pandemic. “While the world was dealing with corona, we will dealing with corona...and Kareena, who is the heroine of the film, who became pregnant,” he joked, adding, “So we were like one more gust of wind has pushed us in another direction... For now things seem to be in control and hopefully by the end of the year we should be able to see the film.”
