Ekta Kapoor: I think the first thing you think as a mother is guilt
Producer and daily soap Queen Ekta Kapoor comes across as a very confident, intelligent and a level headed person. The feisty diva recently became a mother via surrogacy and there is no better feeling in the world than caring for your little child. Ekta has named her Baby boy Ravie Kapoor.
Now, Ekta Kapoor in an interview with Film Companion, talked about the arrival of her son and other changes in her life. Ekta said, “When I knew that the surrogate had conceived, it was on my birthday, which is on June 7. I was a bit overwhelmed. I was like ‘Okay this is happening’. This is going to be a huge responsibility. I just wrote a show out which is going to be with an A-list Bollywood actress. It’s called ‘Mentalhood’. It’s about motherhood and every time we did the scripting about the Momzillas and the pressure you go through, the guilt you go through, tiger moms, helicopter moms. I was constantly feeling overwhelmed. But now I have realised that I have a lot of guilt even now.”
Ekta immensely loves her nephew Laksshya Kapoor but having your own kid can make a world of a difference to an individual’s life.
The sister of Tusshar Kapoor further added, “I think the first thing you think as a mother is guilt. I don’t think anyone would say that so openly. I am at work, I am feeling guilty, when I am at home, there is a lot of guilt about not completing the things that I used to normally do. So you are just dealing with various kinds of guilt. Then it’s responsibility and third is a feeling that there’s someone there that you want to see grow. It’s a bit confusing at this moment. It has been 25 days as of now.”
