Talking about her teenage sons, The actress confessed that tackling teenagers is very difficult. “A time comes when they think they know everything. They become disobedient. I tried to maintain a balance during their adolescence. I tell them not to look back and to learn from mistakes. Most importantly, I teach them to respect others,” she said.

Madhuri also admitted that it is her elder son who has an interest in films and acting. “Along with computer science, he is also taking interest in direction,” she said.  

In the interview, Madhuri also spoke about her career. She said that she was lucky to work in realistic characters. “The roles I have played in Mrityudand, Beta, and Dil are pretty realistic. These days, most of the characters are realistic,” she said. Talking about social media and paparazzi trends she said, “When I started working, social media and paparazzi culture were not there. Now everything has changed with time. Now, paparazzi are everywhere, and hence, we take care of our airport looks also.”
