Kareena Kapoor had a glorious pregnancy. Soon after, Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Khemu announced that they too are expecting their first child. Of course, as always, one wondered how Sharmila Tagore felt because mums always worry the most for their daughters’ well being. She opened up in an interview with DNA. Here are excerpts.
On whether it’s going to be different this time around…
I don’t think there’s any difference as such in the family, but yes, it is a bit, as it’s my daughter now, who is giving birth. Kareena’s mum was more anxious when she was expecting as I am today when Soha is. It’s the mother-daughter bond.
On this being quite a big decision for women…
I think it’s quite a big decision for women to have children. In our time, I don’t think we thought so much about it. We just went and had them and of course, life is not fun-filled and not complete if you don’t have them. It’s a wonderful thing when you think about it. I felt so much closer to my mother after I had babies. It bonds a mother and daughter more.
They always say women become closer to their mothers when they become mothers. Sweet! We’re sure Sharmila is looking forward to becoming a nani. :)
