I am enjoying my babies a lot more because I have so much help who can do the manual work. I seriously think mothers should not feel guilty about not doing stuff like cleaning babies and changing nappies. Which child remembers who changes their diapers? At least I don't. I only remember the quality time I spent with my mom. Remember there is no such thing as a perfect mother, just give your kids all the love and warmth you can.
Everyone tells me that the mothers I have portrayed in my two films Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om were archetypal and over-dramatic. But now that I am a mother myself, I think that Kirron Kher's character (excluding the drama bit) in OSO is very real. Like her I am trying to feed my kids the whole day! And I have seen Kirron doing he same thing off-screen too. She is always after Sikandar enquiring about his meals! The relationship she shared with her son on-screen was very informal and lovely and the right blend of being mother and friend, and I hope to have the same with my kids!
I think all Indian men are mamma's boys. I can already see it in my son Czar. He clings the maximum to me... and I love it! Diva, like her name, throws the maximum tantrums! I love to hug and cuddle them all, as it is an important way of bonding with our children, so please do not hesitate to get physically close to yours children. Shirish and I even plan to take them along on the sets once I start working and spend as much time as we can together
