You said in an interview in January this year that you were busy with your work and not thinking of motherhood. Now you are pregnant. Please comment.
Simple. At that time I wasn't prepared for motherhood. Now I am. It just takes a moment to change your mind and start preparing.
For instance six months ago you may say that you aren't prepared for marriage. Six months later you may be fully prepared.
When is your baby due?
The baby is due in February.
How long a sabbatical will you take after you have your baby? Would you like to be a stay-at-home mom?
I will take a few months to a year off after I have my baby. I want to give full attention to my baby when he needs me. I haven't still planned for how long my sabbatical will be though.
Did participating in Pati, Patni aur Woh train you to be a mother?
That was just a professional commitment on my part. Nobody can train you to be a mom. You learn from raising your own child.
You are in your thirties. Though doctors do recommend that you need to complete your family before 30, do you think that having a baby later also has an advantage. After all you are a more mature parent at that time.
At what age you want to have your baby is entirely your decision. However I do agree that you are a more mature mom when older.
Is it true that you would like to have a baby girl?
All I want is a healthy baby. I would prefer that my baby is a girl. After all it is fun to dress up your daughter in pretty dresses, pins and ribbons. A mother - daughter bond is great. However if I have a son I will love him just as much.
Are you planning your nursery?
I haven't planned a nursery yet.
How are you keeping healthy and fit during your pregnancy?
I am taking the usual precautions like eating healthy, walking and not being in a car that is being driven fast.
Is your husband Sachin Shroff taking extra care of you now that you are pregnant?
Of course my husband is taking extra care of me, especially when I have aches and pains.
Have you started to choose baby names?
I haven't started to choose baby names as yet.
Your sister-in-law Sheetal is expecting too. Is she giving you tips on pregnancy?
My sister-in-law Sheetal is expecting and will be having her baby next month. Yes, we have lots of notes to share.
