What are your thoughts on surrogacy?Surrogacy doesn’t always work. It should be treated as a last resort, not the first. One just hopes that it doesn’t become a money making racket, sort of an inter-womb scam. And most certainly, it shouldn’t be used as an option for people who want it easy and don’t want to play with their figures. In the past, there have been some cases like this. Certain women do not want to go through the childbirth pain and the hassle that comes along. I feel those are shallow reasons for opting for surrogacy.
Did you lose hope when you went through a miscarriage and the post complications?At that point, I mentally prepared myself that I won’t have a child and eventually, accepted my fate. And because there were Aamir’s children, Ira and Junaid, I didn’t feel the need to adopt. That would have been an option otherwise. When you are trying too hard to have a baby but fail, you tend go through so many pains. But time is a great healer.
Any advice to those who cannot conceive?You have to make peace with the fact that life can be complete without kids. There’s so much life has to offer. You find other ways to fill that vacuum.
Everyone’s appreciating Ship Of Theseus. But why choose a movie with such little market viability?I feel filmmakers who have some say in terms of influence, should take it as a duty upon themselves to create opportunities for different kind of films .... I understand such filmmakers don’t have money to push their film in big cities.
