Kajol: Small screen censor

Kajol is said to be one dedicated mother and now the makers of ‘Chhota Bheem’ and ‘Mighty Raju’ have decided to honour her with the ‘Mighty Mother’ title! Kajol is a hands-on mother and likes to keep a watch on what her children are watching on television. She is mother to two children, Nysa who is 11 and Yug who is 3.

 “As a mother, you can’t help but be inducted into this world. I feel it begins with curiosity as to what is your child watching, followed by a bit of the motherly instinct to monitor and finally you are a part of their world. I’m mostly around them when they are watching TV. I may be doing my stuff but I keep an eye on what they are watching and in the process do end up watching a couple of episodes.

“I also have a dos and don’ts channel and programme list, so even if I’m not by them, they are well monitored. I believe as a parent, one has to be strict and lay down certain guidelines. So my kids are well within the boundaries that I set for them. These are learning years for them, they pick up fast and will retain what they learn now. So, in a way it’s a sensitive age, so you have to be very careful of what is watched or read,” said Kajol.
