A woman has to enact many roles during her lifetime, a daughter, a mother, and a wife. She has to do all these with perfection and Deepika Singh is one of the best examples of it. Deepika Singh came into the spotlight after appearing on the show, Diya Aur Baati Hum (2011) where she portrayed the role of Sandhya. She won many awards for the show, but later took a break from television because of her pregnancy. The actress has now confirmed that she will be making her return to the television screen soon.
In a recent interview, she talked about handling motherhood and postpartum depression and how her husband, Rohit Goyal has always supported her. While talking about her husband, she said, “Rohit, my husband, has undoubtedly been my support system and my Kawach. He loves writing scripts and is working on a film. He was also doing the show Ek Thi Rani Ek Tha Raavan but left for some reasons and I learnt of it three days later after he stopped going for work. He himself told me that our baby would have been alone with both parents working and decided to stay back home.” She continued and said, “It was Rohit who boosted my morale and asked me to go ahead with my career. He told me that I have stayed back enough leaving my career for our family life and now that it was his turn. I was delighted and emotional about knowing about his thoughts. It was because of his support that I could leave my baby behind and concentrate on work. Now Soham is with his father when I am shooting for 12 hours. I am unable to constantly check whether he has had food and all. But I know he's fine with his father around.”
While talking about talking break from the industry, she said, “I have always taken things in a flow. I take life as it comes. I don't make intense conscious decisions and I am ready to take whatever life has in store for me. Nothing is certain in life and I believe that God has always been kind to me. I believe in decisions made by God and I welcome them with an open mind and heart. So, I don't really think about anything. I am really happy that I took this decision of being a mother without fearing about my career.”
She also talked about motherhood and how it has helped her in becoming a mature person. The actress said, “Motherhood brings along a lot of happy moments and there is no scope for any depression otherwise. But yes, the postpartum depression usually takes place with some women but thankfully I didn't go through it. I just was tensed because I wanted to lose weight and was wondering if I would fit into my old clothes and become thin ever. I had become really bulky and I was getting offers for shows. As a human being, I wanted to get back into shape for myself and not succumbing to any peer pressure. I wanted to lose weight for myself and to inspire my children. I wanted them to know the importance of fitness. And that's what is happening, Soham and my niece Yoshika both are taking interest in Yoga. I wanted to be this hot mommy of my baby. I wanted to be fit.”
We all are in love with Deepika’s story and are eagerly waiting for her to make a comeback.
