Soha Ali Khan Says She’s the Disciplinarian While Kunal Khemu is the Fun Parent
Soha Ali Khan spoke about parenting with Kunal Khemu and the relationship she shares with her daughter Inaaya Khan
Bollywood actress and author Soha Ali Khan has had a good run in the industry with films such as Rang De Basanti, Tum Mile and Go Goa Gone. But the actress hasn’t been seen on screen too often. In 2017, she published her first book, The Perils of Being Moderately Famous – as she belongs to a family full of film and sports stars. The same year, she gave birth to her first child – a daughter Inaaya and she and her husband, Kunal Khemmu were overjoyed. Ever since, Soha has been very active on social media, often sharing advice on parenting.
In a recent interview with The Asian Age, Soha spoke about the relationship she shares with Inaaya, and how that differs from the one with Kunal. She said, “Inaaya is very close to me, but I can see the bond between her and her father. Usually, when the daughters grow then they get attached more to their father’s. And I can also see they are having a great time without me also. There was a time when she could not be without me, but now she is really happy and bonds well with her father. She does not look for me as much she looked for me while she was younger.”
She continued, “I am the disciplinarian while Kunal is the fun parent. He keeps narrating stories, does puppet shows, plays games, and throws her around at times, which is when my heart is in my mouth. I do all the dirty work, I keep shouting and all the strict stances come up from me.” Soha also commented on the relationship she has with her brother, Saif Ali Khan and his latest film, Laal Kaptaan. She concluded, “I feel that he is always ready to take risks; he never likes to look a particular way. He does things out of the box, and it’s a commitment from an actor to dress up like that every day and become that character for so long. I am personally very excited to watch his film now.”
