Actor Gautami Kapoor says that her husband actor Ram Kapoor is a strict father and the kids listen to him. She, however, doesn’t have the same authority. “Ram says something once, and it is done immediately. I am not that strict,” says Gautami, who has two children - daughter Sia, 10 and son Aks, 7.
Gautami says that she has always tried to become more of a friend to her children, rather than a parent. “I am a very strict person and follow a strict routine. But as far as my kids are concerned, I try to be more of a friend. In today’s day and age, that is more important,” she says.
Talking about being a parent, the actor says that she has to deal with a lot more today, than what her parents went through. “Today we need to combat many issues. With the internet boom, it has become tricky to bring up kids in the correct way. I am always freaking out. Now that my daughter is growing up, we are constantly hoping that she tells us everything,” she says.
Meanwhile, the actor, who was last seen in Parvarrish - Season 2, says that she concentrates on doing one show at a time. “I am glad that there are seasonal shows now. A show continues for six months and then you can move on to your next. This is a good move for television,” she says.
