Talking about the same, the actress shared that during her childhood, she used to spend time with her parents on weekends, as they were working. Thus, as she clearly understands the feeling of being away from one's parents, she loves to give her time to her kids whenever possible. Shilpa said:

“My mother has been a very strong influence in my life. And I was telling somebody that we understood that our parents were working. And we barely saw them. We only saw them on weekends because that was the only time that we got with them. Unke pass choice nahi thi. Hum to bohot saara time spend karte hain apne bachchon ke saath.”

Shilpa reveals she and Raj want to give the best to their kids as they are very middle-class

In the same conversation, Shilpa also mentioned that although they often go on vacations, brunches, dinner and shopping, she and her husband, Raj are very middle-class. Not only that, Shilpa mentioned that the duo had a very middle-class upbringing. And since they can provide their kids with what was impossible in their childhood, the doting parents try to give their best to Viaan and Samisha. Shilpa added:

“We go on long holidays where there's a lot of quality time. Hum log dinner karte hain unke saath, breakfast bhi karte hain. So maybe because Raj and I are very middle class and we've had that kind of middle-class upbringing, that we want to give the best to our children. Because we have the luxury to do that.”
