Bollywood Actors as Parents
Juggling fame and family is all in a day’s work
BOLLYWOOD IS A COMPETITIVE place where looks play the most important part. Gymming for long hours, workouts, make-up, shoots, lights, cameras and action. Beyond this world they have their own small world of reality where they have their loved ones waiting. Striking a balance between these two lives, juggling different roles and managing hours is definitely not easy but that’s what makes actors real heroes.
Do you wonder how these actors must be at home without all of that make-up, camera lenses and not to forget their fan following? Whenever Shahrukh Khan cancelled shoots, it was most of the times for his family; he ensured that he was present for both his kids’ birthdays and he celebrates every festival with them.
On the other hand, actor Akshay Kumar has tattooed his son’s name on his back “AARAV”. For this father, his son is his star. Actress Kajol Mukherjee Devgan, Raveena Tandon and Madhuri Dixit wanted to give enough time to their kids, so movies took a back seat while kids and family stood as priority.
Actress Karishma Kapoor’s daughter “Samaira” is the apple of sister Kareena Kapoor’s eye. Actress Shri Devi’s daughter wants to join Mamma’s league and wants to follow her footprints. While Mamma trains her for the next few years, Papa thinks of the best script to launch her.
How can one forget once upon a time Miss Universe, Sushmita Sen, who had adopted a baby girl? Recently, she walked the ramp with her daughter, who she claims was born not from her womb but her heart so she is closest to her heart. She has recently adopted a second little girl who she has named Alisah and has already cancelled shoots and shopping trips to spend time with her.
Actor Anil Kapoor’s daughter has grown big enough and shares the cinema screen with her daddy. She debuted opposite Ranbir Kapoor who is the son of actor Rishi Kapoor .
Actors may play different roles on screen whether hero, villian or comedian but in real life, they have emotions and they care deeply about their family and children. After all, there is a big difference between “THE REEL LIFE” and “THE REAL LIFE.”
