Bollywood actress Kajol is all set to win our hearts in her upcoming film Helipcopter Eela in which she will be seen playing a possessive mother. The film will give some parenting lessons. Kajol is already a mother of two in real life. Talking about being a parent in real life, she said in a recent interview, “I’m a Hitler mother… I’m a bad cop, Ajay’s a good cop… But the percentage of the good cop has dropped in him. He has realised that it is necessary to be a bad cop sometimes. That he can’t always look at the mother to say ‘no’. I’m 30 per cent bad cop, 70 per cent good cop.”
Kajol said during a session at NDTV’s special youth conclave, ‘YUVA’, “It’s a very much a hands-on job… You have to do an internship with a child… You have to know that you will make mistakes and that others will make mistakes. You’ll have to forgive them and yourself. It is one of the most rewarding jobs… To see your children growing up to become good human beings.”
She was asked that whether her daughter Nysa will do films or not. To which she replied, “She would tell me, I hope. I’d encourage her. I want her to choose for herself – what she wants to do with her life, not what I want her to do.”
The actress mentioned that the Television and Films have made an ideal image of a mother. She says, “An ideal is there. That a good mother cooks food, does this and does that… She sacrifices her life for their kids. If your child thinks you are a good mother, that’s the opinion that matters.”
It is very difficult for the star kids to lead a normal life. They are always observed by shutterbugs. They are given the unwanted limelight. Kajol says, “I hope my kids are not affected by my celebrity status. I have tried my best to keep them as normal as possible. I believe they have their head on their shoulders. I think I’ve done a good job.”
Helicopter Eela is slated for October 12 release.
