The questions the society bombards on our women about embracing parenthood post marriage are unapologetic. And of course, when you are in the limelight, you will get more of these questions, on platforms not even related to marriage or parenting. But when our leading men are on the same platform, these questions aren’t even asked.
An international daily quizzed Deepika Padukone with similar questions. The Padmaavat actress expressed her views and said, “It will happen when it has to happen. Motherhood trumps being married. That’s what I hear from people who have had children. Of course, it will happen at some point but no, I think it is unfair to put women through that, to put a couple through that. I guess the day we stop asking the questions is when we will bring about change”.
On a work front, Padukone is busy shooting for Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak, also starring Vikrant Massey.
