In an interview with CS,she talks about the campaign, her kids and married life.
For a cause
I am glad that the UN has stepped into to recognise the plight of the LGBT community who are often victims of homophobia. The campaign aims to sensitise people through social media and public awareness initiatives. People like Ricky Martin and Brazilian singer Daniella Mercury are also a part of this. I feel bad when I see people discriminating against gays be it at educational institutes, workplaces or even in places like restaurants.
Everyone who sees my kids say that they resemble both Peter (husband Peter Haag) and me. They have brown eyes like their father but the shape of their eyes is like mine. They are quite hyperactive now. We have enrolled them for martial arts in Singapore to channelise their energy. They are having fun kicking around.
Though I wasn’t doing any film post motherhood, I was busy writing my book. It is a book for young mothers on post pregnancy fitness, handling toddlers, beauty tips, etc. I was also learning German from Peter. Every evening we would sit down for my lessons. Other than the sequel of No Entry, I am planning on another film.
A pillar of support
In fact, at times, Peter and I don’t even feel like we are parents. Peter is a very supportive husband. He encourages me in all my endeavours and doesn’t hesitate from pointing out my mistakes. Peter did not have any problem in adjusting to our culture. He spent a lot of his growing years in Iran and is quite accustomed to Asian culture. I too come from an Army background. Cultural differences haven’t been an issue at all in our marriage.
