Mod­ern-day show­biz fam­i­lies break the evil step­mom stereo­type

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Monika Rawal Kukreja

Re­fut­ing re­ports that she shared a strained re­la­tion­ship with her step-child, Maanay­ata Dutt shared a gor­geous photo with Tr­ishala, the daugh­ter of her ac­tor hus­band San­jay Dutt from his pre­vi­ous mar­riage to Richa Sharma. The cap­tion read: “The li­onesses. Dutt ladies in the house... New York times at its best.” Ear­lier, Tr­ishala told us, “I can talk to Maanay­ata about any­thing... She’s a great mother, a great friend.”

New mum Ka­reena Kapoor Khan has been spot­ted par­ty­ing hard with hubby Saif ’s older kids Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim, from his first mar­riage with ac­tor Am­rita Singh. Ka­reena said in an in­ter­view, “Sara’s my bar-hop­ping part­ner. That’s the way Saif wanted and that’s the way I wanted it.”

Ac­tor Aamir Khan’s wife Ki­ran Rao has never shied away from be­ing clicked with her hus­band’s chil­dren Ira and Ju­naid Khan, from first wife Reena Dutta. At any pub­lic event, they’ve al­ways come across as a happy fam­ily.

Re­la­tion­ship ex­pert Dr Ka­mal Khu­rana ex­plains, “It’s about how the new mem­ber (sec­ond wife) is in­tro­duced in the fam­ily. If there’s al­ready lot of bias and judg­ment, then it’s dif­fi­cult to ac­cept her. So any change is re­sisted. One shouldn’t try to force any re­la­tion­ships and there’s a clear pos­si­bil­ity of cre­at­ing friend­ships, in­stead.”

Clearly, the evil step­mom of the older Hindi films was more a work of fic­tion than a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of re­al­ity.
