Ac­tors and re­al­life couple Ram Kapoor (left) and Gau­tami Kapoor (inset left) have both worked their way up in show­biz and have bal­anced their per­sonal and pro­fes­sional lives well. But Gau­tami tells us that their jour­ney to­gether would have been a rough one had they not been part of the same in­dus­try.

“Had I not been an ac­tor, I don’t think I would have un­der­stood Ram’s work sched­ule. Had Ram not been an ac­tor, it would have been dif­fi­cult for him to understand what I was do­ing. So com­ing from the same in­dus­try has helped us understand the ad­van­tages and dis­ad­van­tages of be­ing an ac­tor. We are pa­tient and tol­er­ant,” says Gau­tami, who tied the knot with her Ghar Ek Mandir (TV show) cos­tar in 2003.

Gau­tami, who took a sab­bat­i­cal of eight years to take care of their chil­dren — Sia, 9 and Aks 6 — will now be seen in a daily soap based on the ex­pe­ri­ences of par­ent­ing.

“I took a step back from work when I re­alised our chil­dren needed me and Ram was at the top of his game. Now, I have started fac­ing the cam­era again and Ram is the one who is tak­ing things slow and spend­ing time with the kids,” she says.

Her tele­vi­sion shows in­clude Ke­hta Hai Dil and Kyunkii Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.
