sharmila tagore, kareena kapoor, soha ali khan

Actress Sharmila Tagore has every reason in the world to rejoice as her daughter Soha Ali Khan is pregnant with her first child. Last year, Sharmila had become a dadi when daughter-in-law Kareena Kapoor Khan gave birth to a baby boy and named him as Taimur. And, now that she is all set to become a nani, as her own daughter is expecting, she was asked if it’s the same feeling as it was when Bebo was expecting.

Speaking to a leading daily, Sharmila said, “I don’t think there’s any difference as such in the family, but yes, it is a bit, as it’s my daughter now, who is giving birth. Kareena’s mum was more anxious when she was expecting as I am today when Soha is. It’s the mother-daughter bond. I think it’s quite a big decision for women to have children. In our time, I don’t think we thought so much about it. We just went and had them and of course, life is not fun-filled and not complete if you don’t have them. It’s a wonderful thing when you think about it. I felt so much closer to my mother after I had babies. It bonds a mother and daughter more.” (Also Read: Soha Ali Khan on maternity tips: Kareena has been very helpful)


She even recalled the time when she was expecting, “I wasn’t there as much for Saif as I was for Soha and Saba as I wasn’t working so much then. I was very busy during Saif’s time and when he was growing up. I was doing double shifts, but I did have the support of my husband and also my neighbour Sunita Goswami, who also happened to be teaching at Saif’s Bohri-run school Saifee Mahal, which was a wonderful school run by Mrs Noorani. She was Saif’s second mother and she and her husband Jatin looked after him a lot. I was there for all his milestones, but I really wasn’t there for his day-to-day work.”
