Juhi Parmar On Being A Single Mother, Reveals How People Say, 'Must Have Been A Woman's Fault Only'

Juhi Parmar is riding high in her professional life as she made her debut on OTT with the show, Yeh Meri Family 2.

Juhi Parmar talks about being a single parent to her daughter, Samaira

Talking to News18 Showsha, Juhi revealed how single parenting is totally different as the mother has to play the role of both parents. In her words:

“That kind of connect wasn’t there simply because in my real life, I am a single mother and in Yeh Meri Family, she is not. Single parenting is totally different. It is playing the role of a mother and a father, both and not having a partner who is going to take half of your responsibilities. However, I could relate to the emotions of a mother. That does not change with being a single parent or being married and having a child. Emotion remains the same.”

Going further in the conversation, Juhi also revealed how she is judged by society for being a single parent. Revealing how people say that it is always a woman’s fault, the Kumkum actress stated:

“From society to people around me, they have always come up to me and said ‘You are doing a great job as a mother’ and ‘you inspire us’. Yes, there are judgments. There are people who will say that it must have been a woman’s fault only. You really can’t go out and change them. They need to look within themselves and understand from where so much of negativity and hatred is coming. They need to fix that. It is easy to judge and difficult to be in somebody’s shoes and understand why a decision like this was taken.”
