Sonam Kapoor has been redefining femininity and breaking stereotypes not just with roles in her films but also by living a life on her own terms. Kapoor, who married fashion entrepreneur Anand Ahuja in 2018, will celebrate her first wedding anniversary on 8th May.
In a recent interview to Vidya Balan on the latter’s radio show Dhun Badal Ke Toh Dekho on 92.7 BIG FM, Sonam appeared as a special guest and spoke about some myths associated with typical Saas-Bahu relationships. Kapoor was present in a special episode which also featured Rani Mukerji and Juhi Chawla.
When asked about her relationship with her mother-in-law and how well she gets along with her, Sonam Kapoor said, “I like to call my mother-in-law my mother. She has two children and she treats me like her third child. She is my friend and at the same time she’s my mom. I think she’s loved me as much as my mother loves me. She doesn’t have a daughter, so she keeps saying that she eventually got a daughter in me and I think everyone should be as lucky as I am.”
When Rani was asked the same question, she replied, “She is a fantastic lady. I thank my mother-in-law every day for making Aditya the person he is today. She’s an absolutely fantastic lady to know, and this is something that’s clearly visible in the way that she’s brought him up. She has instilled such good values in him that I keep thanking her.”
Juhi Chawla who has been actively experimenting with roles in cinema also opened up about the bond she shares with her mother-in-law. She spoke of how her mother-in-law despite living in Uganda would fly down to Mumbai to look after Juhi’s kids when the latter was away on long outdoor shoots.
“This is when I understood the value of family support. Thankfully, having them around helped me to continue working and travelling despite having kids,” she added.
This special episode will air today on 92.7 BIG FM.
Dhun Badal Ke Toh Dekho is a new radio show with Vidya Balan as RJ which focuses on bringing imperative social topics to the forefront, and airs every weekday evening from 7 pm to 9 pm, with repeats on Saturday and Sunday.
