Actor, director Soni Razdan seems to be the best mommy that one can ask for. She lets her daughters, Alia Bhatt (24) and Shaheen Bhatt (29), be the way they want and isn’t worried about the men in their lives or their marriage plans. For Soni, it’s more important that her daughters find contentment in whatever they do.

“Like every mother, I also want Alia and Shaheen to be happy. Whatever they do, they should feel satisfied doing it. I’m not a paranoid mother who pushes them to settle down. Marriage will happen, when they are ready to take the plunge. They are grown-up enough to decide what would work best for them. I want them to be happy and settled as individuals first. They should find their groove in life, especially at a time when so much is happening all around,” she says, adding that she and her husband, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, are always there for their daughters.

Just before we all stuffed our faces. Oh dear 😮☺️

On rumours that Alia is dating Student of The Year (2012) co-star Sidharth Malhotra, Soni says, “Alia is big enough to take her own decisions. Alia now lives in a separate house. She can make her independent choice. Also, I am not someone who will grill them about everything. There are some nice boys around and they can be with anyone. Varun (Dhawan) and Sidharth are both so lovely, so if Alia is really close to them, there shouldn’t be any problem.”

Soni, who has been a part of films such as Saaransh (1984), Sadak (1991), Sir (1993) and Love Breakups Zindagi (2011), also feels that falling in love is very common and healthy. “Two single, young souls can fall in love, what’s the big deal? Rather it’s a good thing,” she adds.
