Between the diaper changes, playtime, feeding her little one and juggling conference meetings, climbing up the corporate ladder, a working mom struggles to live up to the unrealistic expectations of work-life balance. Neha Dhupia is one such working mom, who is managing her work commitments with her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Mehr Dhupia Bedi. Neha has been working from home ever since the pandemic was announced and is managing her work life with family life.
Once, when Neha Dhupia was auditioning for Roadies Revolution, her little one, Mehr Dhupia Bedi walked into the frame to call her mama to play with her. Neha had captioned her 'work life meets mom life' video as "#BUSTED!!! ... #workfromhome gets real!!! Especially when your daughter walks into a live audition and decides to pull your earrings and wants her mama back to play!!! Once a reality show always a reality show. #roadiesrevolution #gangneha #worklifemeetsmomlife."
Amid the pandemic, Neha Dhupia became a judge on another reality show, Made on Roposo, and in a chat with the DNA, the actress spilt beans on the difficulties she has to face while shooting from home. Speaking of managing time with a kid while working from home, Neha said, "But especially when you're a mom, and you have a child, you need to manage your time. There's a reason why, when you're living in your own house, you can't deny your child, or you can't explain to a two-and-a-half-year-old that 'don't come to this side, because this is mama's camera angle'."
Acknowledging the blessing of having work from home instead of having no work at all, Neha Dhupia added, "So, there are lots of things that come in the way with work from home, but the blessing of work from home is at least you are working, from home, as opposed to not doing anything at all."
Just like Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu's daughter, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, Mehr Dhupia Bedi accomplished a milestone in June 2021 as she graduated in her preschool. Sharing the pictures of the virtual celebrations, Neha had written, "#classof2021 our big little girls ... first ever graduation day ... this ones going to go down in history for many reasons ... thank you our lovely teachers and thank you @toddenindia and @tejal.bajla ... #niapatchling and @mehrdhupiabedi our little girls @rika_c... uff! My heart is full..."
To celebrate Mehr Dhupia Bedi's two-and-a-half-year birthday on May 18, 2021, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi treated her with chocolates and a yummylicious chocolate cake. Giving a glimpse of Mehr, who was gorging the chocolate given to her, Neha captioned the post as "Two and a half years today ... our baby girl a little bit (or a lot) of chocolate never hurts ... #smalljoys #bigmilestone #babygirl."
On the work front, Neha Dhupia was last seen in the short film, Devi.
