“I Missed My Daughter,” Shilpa Agnihotri recalls sobbing on the Srimad Ramayan sets

With a part in the mythical television series Srimad Ramayan, Shilpa Agnihotri returned to the screen. She plays Keikayi, Raja Dashrath’s second wife, whose function changes from good to bad in accordance with the legendary plot. For Shilpa, however, choosing to participate in the program wasn’t an easy choice. The emotional toll of being away from her child was the most difficult thing for her.

Recently, Shilpa spoke out about her personal experience. She overcame the obstacles to move her family close to Umbergaon, the location of the filming, in an unusual move. Her daughter will stay near her set thanks to this choice.

Shilpa Agnihotri said, “Well, it is definitely not easy,” in a Pinkvilla interview. I now understand what it’s like to have working mommy guilt. I used to sit in my vanity car and weep because I missed my baby so much during those first few very tough days. Nobody ever finds it easy. But Shilpa adds, “If and when it’s necessary, it just takes a few minutes for me to go meet her or call her on the sets,” after her family moved to Umbergaon. This has truly helped me out.

In discussing her approach to juggling work and her baby, Shilpa Agnihotri said, “I am handling the guilt part.” Her amazing father and a fantastic assistant handle the real management. Thus, these two are the ones who are expertly handling everything on my behalf. This was not even conceivable, in my opinion, for a day, without them. Making sure to cook before I leave in the morning is how I contribute. I see to it that my daughter consumes the meals I prepare. I do this to mitigate my guilt. We’ve been together for three months now, and I think we’ve done very well overall. We can only hope that things stay this way.

Recently, Shilpa Agnihotri revealed the motivations for her choice to play Keikayi in Srimad Ramayan. After being doubtful for a while because of her motherhood duties to her one-year-old daughter, Shilpa was persuaded over a period of four months by her friend Siddharth Kumar Teewary. The production crew persevered in trying to sign her in spite of her reservations because they saw promise in her that she was blind to. Shilpa was fascinated by the character when she eventually listened to the narration after months of convincing.

After exchanging vows on June 24, 2004, Apurva Agnihotri and Shilpa Saklani became parents in 2022 when they adopted a baby girl called Ishaani.
