Jaya Bhaduri was a superstar when in 1973 she surrendered, for marriage and babies. However, Sharmila Tagore chose to continue her career after marriage and motherhood. “Very easy, in fact, I entered one of the most productive phases of my career after marriage, I was recording for Aradhana when I was pregnant with Saif and when I did Amar Prem with Rajesh Khanna, Saif was born and accompanied me to the sets”, says Sharmila.
Sharmila’s daughter-in-law, Kareena Kapoor Khan, seems to have chosen to walk the beautiful path of her sasu maa. No, you will not see your son Taimur walking on the sets. But while Taimur is cared for by her highly competent nanny, Kareena will be seen promoting her upcoming film Veere Di Wedding. Kareena says that the workload has definitely diminished for the sake of her son, but that she will continue to work on maybe one movie per year.
However, Kareena’s sister-in-law, Soha Ali Khan, has a different motherhood plan. She intends to take a full time to care for her newborn daughter, Inaaya.
“Different women, different mothers, different plans and goals,” says Vani Tripathi Tikoo, actress and active member of the BJP and BJP spokesperson who has gone to the Cannes Film Festival a few weeks after her first baby, Akshara, was born.
Apparently, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sushma Swaraj, who is a working mother who has achieved a good balance between the kitchen and Parliament, was very upset when she learned that Vani was leaving her baby to attend the Cannes festival. “How could I ask her (Vani Tripathi) to leave her baby until the 40-day gestation period ends?” It is said that Ms. Swaraj asked the Minister of I & B Smriti Irani, who has never neglected her duties as a mother despite being so immersed in her political career.
“It’s hard to leave it behind, but I have my in-laws and my mother taking care of Akshara while I’m here in Cannes, but it’s a bit difficult to concentrate on work here while my baby is at home, my whole clock and my routine are now determined for my daughter’s sleep / wake hours, “says Vani.
Hema Malini, who raised two daughters while working as a lead actress, says it was not hard to balance her career with motherhood. “It’s like any other profession, do not we have women in all walks of life balancing their jobs with family duties?” It was never difficult for me to raise my two daughters, Esha and Ahana, while I continued to work in movies. they will accompany me to the sets, they look good at home. ”
Jaya Bachchan who took a full break from acting for motherhood says it was a personal choice. “There was never persuasion from any side, I decided to resign and I never regretted my decision.” And now, many years later, she leads an active life: an actress, a parliamentarian and the always affectionate mother who is always there for her children.
Aishwarya, Jaya’s daughter-in-law, however, followed a different career path. She took a break from acting while her daughter Aaradhya was a baby. But once Aaradhya started going to daycare, Aishwarya returned to acting. “But my priorities are very clear to anyone who signs me, Aaradhya comes first, everything else is secondary,” says Aishwarya. Here is greeting these super moms who we all admire for their heroics on the screen. However, there is much to admire in their real life roles as mothers as well.
