Charu Asopa on fighting a mom's guilt

The Karn Sangini actress said, "A mother's guilt is always there and not just for me guess it is with everyone. A working mother always feels that she didn't manage enough time for their kids; the same goes for me. But, I also consciously make it a point to be there for my little one right after shoot or in between shoots, at times..."

She added, "Every free time of mine is with her so as much as the guilt is there I also know am always there for her and she knows about the same; The feeling of security she has when she sees me, what I see in her eyes, is my biggest reward."
