Actress Lovey Sasan who is known for her role of Paridhi in the popular show ‘Saath Nibhaana Saathiya’ recently became a mother for the second time. In a recent interview with BT, the actress shared how embracing motherhood has helped her to polish her acting skills.
She says: “I personally feel emotional intelligence involves empathy and attuned communication, enabling me to tune into another’s state of mind to establish interpersonal sensitivity and create a connection. This is probably the clearest category in which mothers blossom. One of the biggest brain boosts for moms is the ability to see the world through someone else’s eyes. In many relationships, if you do not agree with a person, you can just walk away but you cannot walk away from your child. Instead, you have to stretch your mind to understand your child’s point of view.”
She adds, “As a mom, I’m learning to listen and be interested in what my child thinks and this makes me learn to get into his mind to fully understand the perspective of my child. These skills of attuning to others will for sure help me in my work, as for an actor it is a must to get into the character assigned. So in a way, I hope embracing motherhood will help me become a better actor.”
Lovey, who is a mother to two sons Royce and Prince claims that being a mom is beneficial in many ways. “Motherhood is helping me to set my priorities. As everything else seems surprisingly petty in comparison to the well-being of my children. In a way, having children is making me more liberated, to think more boldly, more willing to take risks, and less hung-up on what other people think of me,” she said.
Along with SNS, Lovey is also known for her role in shows like ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’, ‘Kitani Mohabbat Hai 2’, ‘Kya Huaa Tera Vaada’, and ‘Love by Chance’, among others.
