We’ve always spoken about new mother and motherhood, but very rarely do we talk about the men and their life after fatherhood. Angad Bedi and Neha Dhupia welcomed their baby girl, Mehr Dhupia Bedi in November last year. And for Angad, life has definitely not been the same. Recently, in an interaction with the media, he spoke about how much life has changed after fatherhood.
It (life) is changing for the better. It has made me a more empathetic human being. It makes you realise that you have responsibilities. The more time I spend with my daughter and, in fact, my wife, it transcends into a lot of other things. It makes you more vulnerable, more human. It makes you understand life differently. Before (having a child) you live selfishly. There is nothing wrong in that but now, you start to live your life for your baby. For your family. Also for your parents, who are ageing.
Mehr turned 10 months old last week and Neha shared an adorable post.
Besides fatherhood, Angad was asked about his opinion on celebrities having no personal life.
If you want attention and adulation, and you want the billions of people to pay money to buy a ticket and watch you on big screen, you have to be okay with everything else. On one hand, you want your films to make Rs 200-300 crore. On the other hand, you want to be away from your audience. It doesn’t work like that.
On the work front, he will next be seen in Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl which also stars Janhvi Kapoor and Pankaj Tripathi.
