This isn’t the first time when Karisma Kapoor had talked about her kids, Samaira and Kiaan in an interview and had revealed something surprising about their relationship. During a conversation with the DNA, she had talked about her experience undergone post-motherhood. She had explained, “Motherhood completely changes you as a woman and your whole focus becomes your children, which I love and enjoy a lot. So I think these small initiatives which we can be a part of, which also help our children and family, means a lot. In a certain way, yes. It has altered my choices in life.” Karisma had further stated that work wasn’t a priority for her at that time as she had added, “Work is secondary for me as a mom. It’s all about rushing back home and being with my kids. My housemaid was just calling me (laughs). So definitely, it’s a matter of my choice and I choose to do that.”
In the same interview, when Karisma was asked about her bond with her daughter, Samaira, the doting mother had revealed that she is more of a friend with her right from the start and had revealed that she is her fashion critic in the truest sense. She had stated, “Well, my daughter Samaira is my biggest fashion critic. (Laughs) When I dress up for events, if she doesn’t like what I’m wearing, she will be like, ‘Mom, change these shoes. I don’t like it.’ She has great fashion sense and she completely participates in everything.”
No wonder, we all are proud of the way Karisma is fulfilling the role of a single mother and taking care of her professional life too. The first episode of her recently-aired web series, Mentalhood had perfectly depicted the struggles of modern mothers. In an interview with the IANS, Karisma had talked about it and revealed, "It (acting) is ingrained in you. It is something that never goes away. I was waiting for something really interesting. It was out of my choice that I didn't do any film because my kids were very young. It was out of choice that I wanted to be at home with my family and children."
