Ekta Kapoor reveals she would like to have a baby
Ekta Kapoor has opened up about her desire to have her own bundle of joy. Her brother Tusshar Kapoor who is a single parent, welcomed a baby boy through surrogacy in 2016.
In an interview with SpotboyE, Kapoor explains how her little nephew has been a ray of sunshine in troubled times she experienced in her professional life. “I am a human being who recovered from a lot of pain last year because of my nephew. I had many professional ups and downs last year. Television did very well but films did not and that is very in your face because everyone knows it did not do well. So, it just hits you more. But my nephew would just suck out every bit of tension from me. People, when they used to talk about their children, their eyes would light up. And he is not even my own child, he is my nephew but it is magical. A magic happens when a child comes to a house and as a kid grows, you grow with them and the small things become the big things.”
Kapoor who has a busy schedule managing her production house for the small screen as well as making films, explains how she’s torn between wanting a child but unable to commit time as she is so busy. Though her parents are keen for her to step into the role of motherhood. “My parents want me to but I don’t know if I am ready. I am too busy. So, I have huge respect for women who manage both the home and their work. It’s superb multi-tasking, kudos to them. At this present moment, I have to take out time for a work-out. At 1’o clock, I am going for a walk. I need to plan my life first before I plan a child.”
Asked if she did have a child would she choose the traditional option of getting married first or go down the same route as her brother, Kapoor said she’s unsure of the former. “All my friends, who were married are now unmarried. With the amount of divorces I have seen recently, I think I am the more patient one. Atleast, I waited for it. I definitely know one thing, that I want a child but marriage, I don’t know. I don’t have time for myself, if I get a couple of hours, I would like to go to a spa. I look forward to a one-day vacation with friends. I love my work, so I don’t crib. People tell me give it up if you have such a problem with it. I won’t, I would get so bored. I’d rather be busy than bored.”
