Posted on 29 June 2017 by admin

You must be thinking that star kids have all the liberty to go chill anywhere they want to and have no rules set for them by their parents. Well this isn’t true, at least in the case of Sridevi and her daughters, Jhanvi and Khushi.

Well yes! You heard that right. Sridevi has set curfews for her daughters. In an interview held by a leading daily, Sridevi mentioned, “Yes, rules are same for both Jhanvi and Khushi. They know they have a curfew time and they have to be back home. Else, I will keep calling and inquiring.”

She is quite protective about her daughters and tends to get insecure about them. She added, “There’s an insecurity about my children, when they go out, till they are back I am worried. I call them several times to just find out ki kya ho raha, gaadi kahi ruk gayi hai ya nahi. These are all the basic things that any other mother keeps worrying about when it comes to her children.”

It’s good to know that Sridevi manages her time well by paying attention not only to her work but also her daughters. She is truly an inspiring mother.

Speaking to a leading tabloid, a concerned dad Saif Ali Khan said that he is little nervous about his daughter’s upcoming debut. He said that fear was the something everyone in the industry has always faces as acting profession has never been a stable profession. He said that he wonders why his daughter would choose something like this after having studied abroad where she could have chosen a better work and lived in New York. He clarified that he doesn’t look down on the acting career but he knows it isn’t a stable relationship. He said that everyone who works in the industry lives in constant fear as there is no guarantee whether one will succeed in the industry even after giving their best.

Saif Ali Khan further added that this is not the life any parent would want it for their children. When asked about whether he was involved in Sara’s decision to choose her first film, he informed that he wasn’t. He, then, added that Sara could anytime come and talk to him about anything regarding films just like they talk about everything else.

Abhishek Kapoor’s film Kedarnath is slated to go on floors by the end of this year.
