In an interview with DNA, she had said that her elder daughter, Jhanvi was more ‘obedient’ and ‘seeks more attention’ than her younger child, Khushi. “Both my children are extremely attached to us”, she said.Talking about her daughters, she went on to say, “Jhanvi seeks more attention from me while Khushi can manage things on her own. Though Jhanvi’s grown up now, sometimes I still have to feed her. She won’t eat properly at certain times so I have to make sure that she eats properly.Sometimes she tells me to put her to sleep so all these nakhras she does. Khushi has always been a very independent person right since childhood. Earlier, I used to get a bit rattled and worried because I didn’t want them to get into the spotlight.

Now, I believe that we have learnt to live with it and they have learnt to cope with it.”On the occasion of her birth anniversary, here’s looking back at those moments.– Images from Instagram and Yogen Shah
