Kajol is one actress who has neither shied away from taking a break from films to bring up her children nor unwilling to leave them and head back to work. She has always lived life on her terms and managed to create a wonderful work-life-balance between her personal and professional commitments. In a recent interview, she said that mothers are boxed in by society and judged far too easily when they step outside those boxes. Kajol, who has two children with her husband, actor Ajay Devgn - daughter Nysa and son Yug - said that she has the utmost respect for stay-at-home moms.
During the interview, talking about the pedestal on which society places mothers, Kajol said, “If you don't cook for your child, go to pick up your child from school, you're a bad mother if you don't attend one PTA meeting, you're a bad mother... So there are too many things that make you a bad mom and not enough that makes you a good mom."
When she was asked whether mothers must like their kids all the time, she said, “You can only ask this question to parents, because only if you are a parent you'll understand that this is definitely not true. You're definitely not going to love your children all the time. If you manage 60%, you have a fantastic relationship with your kids. And that 40% is going to be when they throw tantrums, when you throw tantrums... So 60-65% is fab."
Meanwhile on the work front, Kajol was last seen in Renuka Shahane’s directorial Tribhanga that explored mother-daughter relationships across three generations. The film also starred Tanvi Azmi and Mithila Palkar.
