Telly stars share their real and reel experiences on motherhood

Prabha Sinha
Her kids
My older daughter Priyanka is an engineer. She is in the US doing her higher studies. My younger daughter Vanshikha is also an engineer and will soon join her sister abroad.

Time management
I started working only after my daughters had grown up. So there was no problem in raising them.

Reel v/s real life
When my daughter went abroad, the emotions I experienced were exactly the ones that I felt while shooting a bidai scene in a show. At times there aremany similarities in enacting a mother's role on TV.

But there are differences.. like melodrama and the extreme feelings of expressing love or rejection towards the child.

Message to her kids
Now, my only aim in life is to see you'll happy. I'm very proud of both of you.

Apara Mehta 
Her kids
My daughter Khushali has completed her studies. She is working in a play with me. I intend training her to be an actress on stage, later she can move to other mediums.

Time management
I was always home when she returned from school. I've never missed a single parent-teacher meeting. If my husband Darshan or I had to be away from Mumbai on work, we ensured that one of us remained with her.

Reel v/s real life
Screen mothers lack a sense of humour. Today's mothers wear western outfits and are working women. On TV, we don't show real mothers.

Message to her kids
Be extremely positive in life. You have to work very hard to lead the life you want. Nothing is easy. Everything has a price tag, you have to accept that.

ZarinaWahab
Her kids

My son Sooraj is studying in the 11th standard. My daughter Sana has completed her 12th standard and is now studying for another course.

Time management
I gave up work completely when my kids were young. I enjoyed sitting at home and looking after them. That phase of my life was a great experience. I resumed working five years ago.

Reel v/s real life
There are many similarities in real and reel life.

The concern a mother has for her children and the relationship they share is often depicted the way it is in real life.

Message to her kids
Be sincere, punctual and disciplined in life.
