Motherhood is the greatest adventure of life, says Lara Dutta
Mumbai: Lara Dutta says no amount of worry can prepare a woman for motherhood, which she describes as one of the greatest adventures of life.
Lara, who has daughter Saira with tennis icon husband Mahesh Bhupathi, said parenthood is an experience one navigates on a "day-to-day basis".
"You spend many sleepless nights even before the child is born, figuring out whether you'll be a good mother, be able to live up to everything that's expected. But no amount of worry is going to prepare you when the child is born," Lara said.
"Each child goes through its own phases as well. One point of time they are the best behaved child and then they are the opposite. The day you decide to become a parent, you're signing up for one of the greatest adventures of life which doesn't stop ever," she added.
The actor said motherhood gave her a lot more clarity even in terms of how she views her career.
Lara said her career decisions are based "not necessarily on content but also on the time required" for a particular project.
The actor was thrilled to be on board Gurinder Chadha's historical period drama TV series 'Beecham House'.
