I can’t sit back and complain,” she wrote, giving fans some exciting news. “PS producer and entrepreneur coming soon.”
Bhatt spoke about her experience as a new mother in the interview. “Being a mom is new and challenging. It’s also the most fulfilling feeling. Sometimes, when my energy is low, or I’m not feeling well, just look at my baby and I have 1,000 watts. There’s energy,” he said. “At the end of the day, it’s something I chose.

You always feel guilty as a mother when you leave your child somewhere and go to work. I Started working when Kabir was barely a month old. My mom told me that I don’t need to be too hard on myself because this is the career I have worked so hard for and she is there to help. … Your child will learn what it means to be independent from you. You are a role model.”
When asked if motherhood has influenced the types of roles she chooses, Iqra replied, “My personal life, husband and child, they don’t come between me and my work. It doesn’t affect who I am as an actor. It’s a separate part of my life.”
