Apart from movies, these days Kareena Kapoor is being seen on screen in a new avatar of a host of radio show ‘What Women Want’ that discusses the issues of working women and celebrity moms.
Recently Kareena Kapoor invited her sister-in-law Soha Ali Khan on her show and the two female actors discussed and compared their upbringing to their kids Taimur and Inaaya in the digital age that greatly undermines the privacy these days.
Soha says that her upbringing reflects a lot on how she’s raising her daughter Inaaya, but compromises have to be made. “There are times when Kunal [Soha’s husband] says I don’t understand going to play dates and all, he still feels it’s a woman’s job,” she added. “He’ll ask me how many fathers were there. And sometimes there are. The playgroup and preschool that I take Inaaya to, there are fathers who go there,” says the Rang De Basanti star.
“He will not always applaud Inaaya if she’s doing something, Sometimes Kunal will ignore her, and I tell him to give her attention, but he says he doesn’t need to, it’s normal for a child to be around. She can’t always be the center of attention. I want her to have everything but there have to be something that she knows she can’t have all the time.”
And Kareena nodded in agreement. “I think Saif is very much like that. Kunal’s attitude is very much like his. He’s like what is this need to constantly entertain your child? Why does he have to go out every day?”
“He must learn how to entertain himself, otherwise they’ll constantly require that stimulation,” Soha quipped. “When I am with Inaaya, he’s also understanding that it’s my child, I’m happy that she is with her, but I also want my wife to be my wife.”
“Women are constantly walking a tight rope,” Kareena said.
