Genelia D'Souza Shares How Being A Homemaker Is More Difficult Than Being A Working Mother

Staying at home and managing your family looks like a cakewalk until you decide to do the same. It is a 24*7 thankless job as it is not just about managing the house or being with your kids, it also comes with the responsibility of being available all the time for everything happening in your house. Bollywood actress, Genelia D’souza shared her views on being a homemaker as she brilliantly manages her home, kids and shoots at times.

For those, who don’t know, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza got married on February 3, 2012, after dating for 9 years. The doting couple had embraced parenthood for the first time on November 25, 2014, with the arrival of their son, Riaan Deshmukh. In 2016, Riaan was promoted to ‘big brother’ when Genelia and Riteish had welcomed their second baby, Rahyl Deshmukh.

In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Genelia D’Souza talked about being a homemaker and how it is more difficult than being a working mother. She said:

“I feel like it’s easier to be working than to be a homemaker. I feel it’s just considered that you have to do it often and you have to do it. It’s not like, like if you don’t do it, the house will not go ahead. I just salute all the mums who have given up a lot. Like, you know whether it was a simple thing of having an afternoon nap. They would give it up if the house needed it. Even in that zone, we would think that they have to. They don’t have to do anything, like mums who are homemakers as well.”


Genelia shared that she is not against the idea of people going to work, but they do get to do what they feel like which is not in the case of a homemaker. She explained:

“Nothing against people who go out there and work, but I feel that at least you’re doing what you’re doing. Very often a homemaker doesn’t even get that to a large extent. So, I only realized that after being in the house and being a homemaker. Like, today if I leave, not that the house will fall apart, but I’d still feel it would.”

In February 2021, Genelia had taken to her IG handle and had shared a hilarious video with Riaan and Rahyl, lip-syncing the song, Mai Tera Boyfriend. Along with the video, Genelia had penned an emotional note on being a mother and how her kids are above everything else. Her note could be read as:

“Being a Mum is that one time that you realise, you effortlessly, whole heartedly and repeatedly put someone above you but in the process, you also realise that you are the only person they put on the pedestal in their lives… Kids are just that... Forgiving to every mood, wanting you 24/7 and believing their Mom is right ( While every mom questions themselves whether they are doing the right thing) I know as a Mum, I’m not Perfect, I’m not the best, I falter, I fall but where my kids are concerned no one can want better for them, than me… So to all Moms- You are the Best and don’t let anyone make you feel otherwise.”

On the work front, Genelia D’Souza was last seen in the film, It's My Life.
