Sanah was just five when she told me about her de­sire to be­come an ac­tor. I was shocked

She may be proud of her daugh­ter Sanah (above, right) for making a con­fi­dent de­but with Shaan­daar, but ac­tor

Supriya Pathak (above, left) says she was not will­ing to let Sanah choose act­ing as her pro­fes­sion. The 54-year-old ac­tor, who has been in the show­biz for the past three decades, said she did not want her to go through the stress and frus­tra­tion that comes with be­ing an ac­tor.

“I didn’t want Sanah to be an ac­tor. I think the only thing wrong about our pro­fes­sion is the frus­tra­tion you go through, when you don’t have work, when you are go­ing up or down. I am sure it is there in other pro­fes­sions as well, but I know bet­ter about my pro­fes­sion,” says Pathak.

How­ever, the Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela ac­tor got con­vinced when Sanah rea­soned with her say­ing stress comes with ev­ery pro­fes­sion. “She was just five when she told me about her de­sire to be­come an ac­tor. I was shocked. But she even­tu­ally put it very nicely and said, ‘Mom even if I be­come a doc­tor I will be go­ing through the same thing. So, why not do what I love do­ing.’ I re­alised then that if she wants to do it she should be al­lowed to.” Surpiya feels she and her hus­band ac­tor Pankaj Ka­pur have given their daugh­ter the per­fect up­bring­ing and are con­fi­dent that she can take care of her­self. “We know she can be by her­self. She is a hard­work­ing girl, be­cause that has been in­cul­cated into her through her fa­ther. She is a very strong per­son and her val­ues are cor­rect,” she said.
