Shahid Kapoor broke many hearts across the country when he married Delhi girl, Mira Rajput. Although, not from a filmy background, Mira is a surprise stunner, be it her fashion choices or her honest and candid views. The new mommy, who welcomed Misha a few months ago, spoke about her views on motherhood and body shaming at a recent event held on Women’s Day.
Mira, who is a homemaker, is proud of her title. At the Eema event, she spoke about her choice to remain a home maker and not work. For her, its her daughter Misha who comes first. Speaking about it, Mira said,
“I had a tough pregnancy and I would not want to spend, I mean I went through those five months of a difficult time to bring my daughter into this world, both of us together. So, now I want to spend every moment that I can with her and I think that I am… there is a set of responsibilities that are on my plate and I feel that at my age, I have a lot more energy, I have my future ahead of me so I can finish all of my responsibilities and then I have nothing in my way. You know I can raise my daughter, I can be a good wife, I can set my house the way I like, not in terms of the way things should be but the way a home must be within its values and ideals. So, nothing will stop me after that but I love being at home, I love being a mother to my child; I wouldn’t have it any other way… I wouldn’t want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush off to work. Why did I have her? She is not a puppy, you know. I want to be there for her as a mother, seeing her grow up has, cannot be quantified.”
Hubby Shahid also tweeted about the interview, appreciating his wife's wise words:
She also spoke candidly about the pressures of being a new age ‘fit’ mom and tackling body shaming. Mira added:
“It’s great to be fit but it’s better to be a healthy mother. I went through the pressure (of body shaming) as well after Misha’s birth. But I feel you can take time to lose that weight. It’s just not about physical, but mental health as well. I took those 40 days of confinement after delivery, which people say is outdated, and I had my ghee, because I gave a lot to give birth to Misha. I loved being pampered.”
