Sharmila Tagore is an icon thanks to the different characters she portrayed on the silver screen. Besides her professional life, the 79-year-old actress has also been looked up to for having a beautiful family.

Sharmila Tagore on being an ‘absent’ mother to Saif Ali Khan

Talking about being absent for several years during Saif Ali Khan’s childhood, Sharmila Tagore said at a YFLO event, “When I had Saif, I was very busy. I was working two shifts a day and for the first six years of his life, I was really absent.” She continued, “I did whatever I had to do/I went for the parent-teacher meeting, attended his plays but I don’t think I was a full-time mom. My husband was there, but I wasn’t. Then when I became a mother, I became an overzealous mother. I wanted to feed him, bathe him and everything. That was the other side of the pendulum. I made a few mistakes, honestly.”
