Shahid Kapoor’s Wife Mira Rajput Added Ekta Kapoor To A Moms’ Group
The well-known producer-director of Indian soap operas, Ekta Kapoor began to embrace motherhood since her baby Ravie was born through surrogacy. Daughter of Jitendra Kapoor excitedly welcomed her child in the world being a working woman.
Ekta’s little bundle of joy, Ravie Kapoor was born on January 27, 2019. When she announced about her son, she also shared how she wanted to become a mother for the last 7 years but nothing seemed to work out. Finally, she opted for surrogacy and found out about the pregnancy in June 2018. In an interview with Film Companion’s Anupama Chopra, Ekta revealed how once Shahid Kapoor’s wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor added her to an all moms’ Whatsapp group while she was writing a script for a parenting show. She said, “India is so ready to lap up everything about parenting and there are about ten parenting shows now. Urban parenting except for Hindi Medium hasn’t been really captured. So I was doing this show, so I think it is a huge demand anywhere. Me being a mother or not. I might get a few insights. By mistake once, Mira Kapoor added me to a mother’s group. And I was like ‘oops how can I leave this group’ and I was hearing these conversations and writing my script and said ‘this is fantastic’.”
Ekta also talked about her journey to the motherhood in the same interview. She stated, “When I knew that the surrogate had conceived and it was on June 7. On my birthday I got to know. I was a bit overwhelmed. I was like ‘Okay this is happening.’ This is going to be a huge responsibility. I just wrote a show out which is going to be with an A-list Bollywood actress. It’s called Mentalhood. It’s about motherhood and every time we did the scripting about the Momzillas and the pressure you go through, the guilt you go through, tiger moms, helicopter moms, I was constantly feeling overwhelmed. But now I have realised that I have a lot of guilt even now.”
Speaking about the constant guilt that gets associated with every woman who becomes a mother, she said, “I think the first thing you think as a mother is a guilt. I don’t think anyone would say that so openly. I am at work, I am feeling guilty, when I am at home, there is a lot of guilt about not completing the things that I used to normally do. So you are just dealing with various kinds of guilt. Then it’s responsibility and third is a feeling that there’s someone there that you want to see grow. It’s a bit confusing at this moment. It has been 25 days as of now.”
Well, we are excited to see Ekta’s baby boy, Ravie Kapoor!
