Updated: May 11, 2014 18:05 IST

For female actors, like all working women, striking a balance between work and home is challenging. And for those who become mothers, the task becomes all the more difficult. This Mother’s Day (May 11), some popular TV actors share their views on how they balance their professional and personal fronts. They also open up about what went into living up to the demands of being an actor and a mother. (Text: Kavita Awaasthi) 
Barkha Bisht “It was emotional for me to leave my baby and go to work. You feel guilty and others add to that feeling. Managing things was easy as my in-laws were very helpful. My daughter, Meera, was 18-months-old (she’s two-and-a-half-years-old now) when I took up Parvarish. Though a working mother needs to put in extra effort, working when you have a young kid doesn’t make you a bad mother.”
