Alia Bhatt, one of Bollywood’s most talented actresses, has been in the spotlight recently after giving birth to her daughter, Raha Kapoor. In a recent interview, she spoke candidly about the challenges of balancing motherhood with her successful acting career.
Despite feeling anxious about whether she’s doing the right thing for her baby and career, Alia has slowly started to get back to work, shooting for a small portion of her upcoming film, ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’, in Kashmir. She’s also been making public appearances at events, proving that she’s capable of juggling both responsibilities.
However, Alia admits that there’s a lot of pressure on women to excel in both roles. She feels that society expects new mothers to sacrifice their careers and become martyrs for their children. Alia believes it’s important for new mothers to get the time they need to gather their bearings, and for organizations and industries to be more understanding and supportive of them.
Despite feeling critical of herself and wondering whether people are just placating her, Alia works hard on her mental health by going for therapy every week. She recognizes that balancing motherhood and career is an ever-evolving process and that nobody has all the answers.
Alia also acknowledges that spending time with her daughter is crucial because she’s growing up so fast. She and her partner, Ranbir Kapoor, have been enjoying holding and bonding with Raha, who is now a little over five months old.
Alia’s fans and followers will be eagerly anticipating her return to the big screen in ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’. In the meantime, she continues to inspire women everywhere with her honest and relatable approach to motherhood and career.
