New Delhi: Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alaya F, who made her debut with Saif Ali Khan starrer Jawaani Jaaneman, talked about one of the advice her mother gave to her.
In an interview, Alaya said that her mother told her that getting married before the age of 30 would be the ‘stupidest’ thing that she could do.
Alaya said that when she was asked what being raised by a single mother was like she said that both her parents always talked about the importance of being financially independent.
Talking to Rajeev Masand, in n interview, she said, “When you’re raised by single parents, they are inherently very independent, so they like to pass that on to their children. Both my parents, for that matter, have constantly said to me ‘You have to be financially independent’. And in a country where parents usually put pressure on their kids for marriage, my parents are the complete opposite. They’re like ‘Als, if you get married before you’re 30 you’re doing the stupidest thing you’ve done in your life. Focus on your career, focus on your work, focus on building yourself’. That’s been said to me all the time.”
Meanwhile, Talking to Pinkvilla, she said, “I was 5 years old and I don’t really have that much memory of it. I had memory of years after that. I had a happy childhood and both my parents are still on great terms. They never made me feel that something sad has happened. It was just a divorce and it’s okay.”
