Raising kids is not easy; normally we try to meet ends to raise children. From juggling between office meetings and parent-teacher meeting events, life becomes a balancing game for most of us.
As ordinary people, we always think that for Bollywood celebrities it would be easy to raise kids, as they have so many people around them to take care. But that’s not the case, they might have caretakers but there are certain celebs who are not only doing well in their careers but are also hands-on parents. Some of the star kids are doing well for themselves and the little ones will never be seen roaming around unattended.
For example Bollywood’s vintage crop – Amitabh Bachchan, Kapoor Khandaan, Roshans, Dhawans etc have visibly given a very normal upbringing to their children, who have grown up and are ruling the entire Bollywood.
New-age Bollywood parents are not behind. Keeping the hazards of being a celebrity in mind, these celebrities make it a point that the celebrity status doesn’t get into their children’s mind.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan may be world’s most beautiful woman, but at home she is a hands-on mom, who won’t take anything, but the best for her little bundle of joy – Aaradhya. Her career was on prime even after marriage took a break during and after pregnancy (which also spoiled her relations with ace director Madhur Bhandarkar). She said no to work for long till little princess was a bit on her own. Since, Aaradhya is born, every year she has been seen accompanying her mother at Cannes film festival. Father Abhishek Bachchan is also not behind, he always seems to have the control of the situation, whenever Aaradhya is with him.
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is a family man, who apart from talking about films keep his fans updated with information about his children and family. Shah Rukh Khan who is said to be a cool dad has always spoken about his children Aryan, Suhana and now Abram.
The elder ones have hardly hogged the limelight for being the star kids and also stay away from the lenses but the younger Khan lad – Abram seems to be enjoying all the attention. But whatever said and done, whenever the kid is in the public, you won’t see him misbehaving. Also, King Khan is always seen around his little one.
Kajol seems to be calling the shots at home. The couple is blessed with two wonderful children – Nysa and Yug. She believes that it is important to discipline children so that they turn out to be good human beings. She once said in an interview, “The one golden rule that I have in my house is – As Momma Says. What I say is written in stone and there are no explanations thereafter.“
Aamir Khan who has two teenage children – Ira and Junaid from his earlier marriage with Reena Dutta have been given a totally normal upbringing. The two stay away from the limelight and can only be spotted, whenever their parents are around. Junaid is soon entering Bollywood through direction and Ira is doing well in sports. Aamir’s youngest one – Azad also seems to be a well-behaved kid publicly.
Twinkle- Akshay Kumar
Twinkle Khanna like all moms nags her son Aarav. Akshay and Twinkle are said to be raising their children with all the love and affection. Nitara being really small keeps photo bombing her mother’s Twitter clicks, But Aarav has grown up into a pure gentleman. He recently received black belt in Japanese martial arts Kudo. The two were so happy that they shared the news with their fans on social media.
Amrita- Saif Ali Khan –
They may not be together anymore, but their children are making them proud. Saif Ali Khan has two children – Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim from his earlier marriage with Amrita Singh. They may have grown now up, but Saif Ali Khan still seems to be a possessive and protective father, who is friendly and strict also with his children.
Of late there were reports of Sara Ali Khan joining Bollywood. Like a normal father Saif Ali Khan soon jumped in and cleared the air by saying that first studies are the priority for Sara, once she’s done, she can choose whatever she wants to pursue. Now, just recently Sara has graduated and rumours are doing the rounds that she will soon be launched in Bollywood.
