I think we’ll be friends when Misha grows up, Mira Rajput


On the occasion of Mother’s Day, Mira Rajput opens up on her controversial statement on working mothers and housewives and also talked about her relationship with Misha. Clearing her earlier statement on working mothers, Mira said that being not a public figure she has the liberty of saying things which may be politically incorrect.

She was quoted saying as, “I was just speaking my mind, my intention was not to offend or hurt anyone. Could I have chosen my words better? Maybe. But I am not a seasoned actor and I don’t know how to be politically correct.”

In the interview, Mira also spoke about embracing motherhood at such a young age. She was quoted as saying, “Being a young mom works for me. I am more hands-on and I have more energy. I think we’ll be friends when Misha grows up. Age gap will not be a roadblock in our relationship.”

Mira Rajput further said, “My mom had me very late in her life and my relationship with her is very different from the one that my sister has with her first born because she had him early on. So yes, I think that being a young mom is a huge advantage. I’ll give her all my time now and once she gets older and independent, I will start working. I have nothing against being a working mom. I think it’s great to be able to balance a career and motherhood, but this is what works for me.” 

On the occasion of Mother's Day, Mira said, "Women who stay at home and take care of their children deserve to be celebrated as well."

Talking about her daughter, the star wife said, "I want Misha to have a normal childhood. I want her to know that she has the privileges that she has because of her father. She has to respect that. I just hope that she doesn't get swept away by the tide." She however added, "While raising my child, I don't want to cross the fine line between independence and negligence."
