It surely is a round-the-clock job and a mother always feels the need to take a break but hardly she gets any time for herself.

Mandira Bedi is a fitness enthusiast and it seems like she is ageing backwards. At the age of 47, she is giving a tough competition to all the young actresses with her oh-so-perfect body. She has redefined the whole meaning of fitness by posting amazing pictures of herself on her social media handle. Mandira rose to fame with her phenomenal acting in the 90s serial, Shanti. She is also an accomplished fashion designer and a doting mother to an eight-year-old son, Vir Kaushal.
According to a report of SpotboyE, Mandira opened about the way society treated her when she had planned to delay her pregnancy due to her professional commitments. She also revealed that she was looked differently and quoted, “Living in Indian society, as a woman you tend to face several stereotypes. When I decided to delay my pregnancy due to work commitments, it was the most difficult decision I had to make. I was looked at differently, and people perceived me as a woman who is career-oriented. You would think that is a good trait to have, but our society thinks differently of a married woman. In fact, even after my child was born, I was always divided between my personal and professional lives.”
Mandira is married to filmmaker, Raj Kaushal and according to her, Raj is the best husband who supported her throughout her career. She had revealed that it was her husband, Raj who helped her to face the struggles of her career. She also revealed that Raj takes care of their son, Vir when she is out for her shoots.

I have struggled and carved my niche in the entertainment industry and I feel very proud of it.” (Also Read: Isha Ambani Piramal Makes Heads Turn In A Heavily-Embroidered Lehenga Paired With A Plain Dupatta)

During the interview, Mandira had shared how becoming a mother had given a new perspective to her life and had quoted, "Motherhood is the most beautiful thing that has ever happened to me. There is so much that I learn from my son. He speaks like a wise old man at times and tells me ‘Mumma… I just love the feeling of love'. When you experience parenthood, it makes you look at the other side as well. The unconditional love I feel for my son, I can only imagine what my parents feel for me. And it has made me love and respects my parents more." (Also Read: Mona Singh Finally Talks About Her 2019 Rumoured Wedding, Says She Will Announce It To The World)
