With her performances in films like Rang De Basanti, Khoya Khoya Chand, Dil Maange More and Mumbai Meri Jaan, Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan left an impression on the audience. The actress took a break for a year after her birth and returned to the big screen in 2018 with the film Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3. Though no big screen release is on the cards, the actress entertained her fans with OTT projects. After ZEE5’s Kaun Banegi Shikharwati, Soha is now grabbing attention for Amazone Prime Video’s Hush Hush.
On the same note, the Pataudi daughter recently shared her experience of working on the series in an exclusive interview with Filmfare. Interestingly, during her conversation, she candidly spoke about being a mother and what changes it brought in her life. While commenting on her approach towards work-life balance, Khan asserted, “I chose to have a child later in life so that I could devote more time to being a parent. That has always been my first priority.”
As she continued, Soha said, “Women are said to be great multitaskers, but I can only do one thing at a time. Do-teen cheezen ek saath Karna aata hi nahin hai. I had lost sight of myself when I became a mother. Now I realize that was a huge mistake, and you must maintain other identities, passions, and pursuits. But it took me two years to realise this.”
Sharing her perspective on being a working mother, she elaborated, “I occasionally feel guilty. However, this comes from within. It comes from our desire to be everywhere. I believe I am the best at everything. Meri beti ko jaise main khana khilati hun vaise Koi aur khana nahin khila payega. She’ll be starving. However, it is impossible to do everything.”
Talking about Hush Hush, the seven-episode series started streaming on Prime Video from September 22 onwards. Along with Soha, the Tanuja Chandra directorial also features Juhi Chawla, and Kritika Kamra in the lead while Karishma Tanna essays the character of a cop.
