The 38-year old actor also shared her experience of becoming a mother to enlighten all the young mothers.

She said, "When I delivered Taimur, the first thing I asked the doctor was that how do I protect him from Pneumonia, how do I protect him from the hundreds of diseases that I have been hearing of and when he presented me with the immunisation chart, I held on to it. I knew this is what it is going to take for my child to be alive."
