She had further penned, “Thank you for making me understand very early in my life that less is more. Big thank you to my mother-in-law the way you take care of Soham @sohamgoyal17, for always motivating me to fulfil my dreams. You never made me realise that I’m not a perfect daughter-in-law, instead of you always realised me that I’m the best human being and the best actress. I love both of you from the core of my heart. Thank you, thank you & Thank you so much. #gratitude #happymothersday.” Checkout the picture collage of both the moms that she shared:
For the ones who don’t know, Deepika had gained a few kilos and shed 16 kilos in seven months after her delivery. In an interview with a media portal, Deepika shared how her mother-in-law has been a complete support all this while. She had shared, “I have always been active. So, when the postpartum weight started causing severe backache, I decided to work out. I would practice yoga and meditation for three hours even when I was pregnant. So, it was all about getting back to the routine. I realised that I need to be fit to take care of my child. Fortunately, my mother-in-law and my mother, who stay close by, took care of my son when I was away at the gym.” (Do Check: Dipika Kakar Shares A Mesmerising 'Iftari' Picture With Husband, Shoaib Ibrahim [Picture Inside])
Earlier, the actress had also talked about coming back to the small screen and had shared, “Like every mother, I love my child, but I am also passionate about acting. I have always been a working woman and I have a support system at home as my mother-in-law is a big help. She takes care of Soham when I go to workout or step out of the house for any errand. I don’t have to worry about nannies or help which is a boon. That is another reason why I have decided to get back to work. Once I start meeting people, let’s see what offers come my way. One might get lucky and get a good show quickly or you may have to wait for a while. I have just made up my mind about acting soon but not approached anyone yet.”
Along similar lines, Deepika earlier had spoken to an online portal and said, "For me, the last few months have been tough. But the best part is that Rohit has taken a break from his shoot and is taking care of me. So, because of him, things have become a bit easier for me. Also, I stay in a joint family, so there are other family members to take care of me too. Because of them, this phase has turned into a beautiful experience."
On the work front, Deepika will be back on the small screen with Colors TV’s, Kavach season 2. A source close to the actress had shared with SpotboyE earlier, "Deepika and Namik shot for their mahurat scene in a Shiv Temple located in Naigaon. Deepika looked very happy, she waited quite a bit before getting a nice break. She did not want to take up anything fluffy for just the heck of it." It is to be mentioned here that the role was earlier offered to Jassi Jaise Koi Nahi fame actress, Mona Singh. Had she not refused the proposal; we would have to wait to watch Deepika on-screen.
