Kajol's mother was a working mom: Tara Sharma talks about empowering mothers

New Delhi/Mumbai: Bollywood actress-turned television show host Tara Sharma is not apologetic about her accomplishments. Grounded and honest, Sharma doesn't mind saying that her show is the "parenting Oprah" of India.

Dressed in a cheerful yellow shirt, Sharma chatted with us on Google Hangouts.

"The show is centred around discussing parenting issues from all walks of life. It is something I've created; I host as well I co-produce the show with my husband Roopak Saluja," begins Sharma. "I often joke that Roopak is the co-producer of our kids and as well as the show," says the mother of two.

Discussing a variety of topics from how motherhood affects actress in the film industry, to "super moms' who juggle work as well as their family lives, Sharma said that these were precisely some of the subjects she was going to discuss on her show.

"For example, Kajol told me that her mother, Tanuja, was a working mom. It was an easier time then, with the support of joint families," said Sharma.

So what about her own prospects in Bollywood? Sharma says candidly, "If something great comes up, I'm sure to get on board. But let me add that I'm not waiting for that to happen; I'm extremely content with my work right now. If the opportunity cost is worth taking the time away from my kids and my show, then I'd love to work in a film,"

The third season of 'The Tara Sharma Show' will present a platform for discussion on parenting issues. The show will not only invite celebrities to narrate their experiences, but a bevy of people from all walks of life.

Celebrity guests who will feature on the 'Tara's Tete-a-tete with' segment of the show include Kajol, Shilpa Shetty, Mary Kom, Juhi Chawla, Vivek and Priyanka Oberoi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Tisca Chopra, among others.

The first episode, which will air on November 30, 11:00 am on Star World, will see actress and mother of two Kajol talking about her experience of becoming a mother and balancing her home and work life.
