The excited mother-to-be says she is looking forward to this phase of her life. Talking to us, she shares, “Zaid and I are both excited. Want to cherish this time despite being in the limelight. I want to keep things low key as possible but being a public figure, I wanted to put it out as well as take the blessings of people who have been with me. This will be a completely new journey for both of us and even I can’t put my finger on exactly how I am feeling. We are both happy.”

She reveals how she was working non-stop in her first three months and “was trying to figure things”. “I shot for an action show and I was so enthu that I even did a few stunts myself. I will be working through January as I have many live events so there will be a lot of travel. And I have things lined up till mid-February. People have already been telling me to not work so much. Maybe I will get calls for pregnant woman roles, if anyone needs a pregnant woman for the next five months,” she quips.

Khan admits that she has been working for 20 years and now though she might slow down a bit, “but I will keep working as I don’t think I would be able to do without work”.

Being a mum is an indescribable feeling says Khan, who feels she has some practice being around kids with her nieces and nephews. “I have felt like a mother to them and have been there for them in all possible ways so my feelings for my child will be multiple folds,” she ends.
