Dipika's plans post embracing motherhood

Talking about her plans, Dipika further added, "I have always craved to live a life of a housewife. Shoaib would go to office, I will make breakfast for him and take care of the house. But that doesn't mean I don't want to work ever again. Maybe I do not work for the next four to five years, or I get offered something good soon and I might accept it also. Or it might happen that I want to give the first few years to my baby. All this I can only say when I welcome my baby."
