Are Kareena Kapoor Khan and Anushka Sharma the perfect examples of working mothers?

Anushka Sharma embraced motherhood on 11th January 2021 as she gave birth to Vamika. A month later, Kareena Kapoor Khan was blessed with her second son five years after she gave birth to her elder son Taimur Ali Khan. What surprised all their fans is that the Bollywood divas did not compromise on their professional life and resumed back to work after a brief period of maternity leave.

While Kareena resumed her shoot for her upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha, Anushka Sharma was spotted reading a script and getting ready in her vanity van, hinting at a new project. This invited a mixed reaction from social media users. Some users felt that the actresses have set an example by keeping up with their careers despite becoming mothers as motherhood involves full-time attention. Others criticized them for being ‘selfish’ as they are not devoting time to their newborns fully which in my opinion is regressive thinking.

It’s mothers day today and we must realise that working mothers are all around us. Some of our own mothers have balanced their job while taking care of our needs. I feel that we must normalize women working while they also take care of their kids. But, what still makes me sad is the fact that fingers are only pointed at women for such issues. On top of that, if you are a successful woman, haters leave no stone unturned to bring you down.
