Doesn’t seem fair for our kids to be exposed to media glare, says Soha Ali Khan

 

 

Soha Ali Khan’s family’s children – from her own daughter Inaaya to nephew Taimur – are always followed by the paparazzi. Actress-author Soha Ali Khan said she doesn’t find it fair.

“We understand public scrutiny is part of the job but that is a call we took for ourselves not our children, so it doesn’t seem fair for them to be exposed to the media glare,” Soha told IANS in an e-mail interview when asked about her take on constant media attention on Inaaya, Taimur and other star children.

“I honestly think it’s too much especially for Taimur… It’s all normal for him but childhood is about innocence and he shouldn’t be robbed of that. He has a right to his privacy and that needs to be respected by the media,” added the actress, who is the daughter of veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and legendary cricketer and former India captain Mansoor Ali Khan’Tiger’ Pataudi.

Soha, who is married to actor Kunal Kemmu, gave birth to their daughter in September 2017. It has been life-changing. “Inaaya has made me evolve as a person – my world has changed forever and my priorities have changed. She is now the focus and everything else comes after her. I have never been around children growing up as I am the youngest in my family so I have never really had to care for anyone else until now.

“It teaches you responsibility and humility. It’s the most awe-inspiring feeling to be a mother. I love it and I am often overwhelmed by it too but there’s no going back and there’s no wanting to go back either,” she said.
