“I’m so proud of her. I think our journey is a great example to give because if you look at Lara, Priyanka and me, I think we are individuals who have defined our own paths. We have done exactly what our individuality has determined for us. Priyanka is doing well in acting ... Lara is enjoying motherhood and doing films... and we are not kind of envious about it,” she said at the time.
