Actress Geeta Basra and Cricketer Harbhajan Singh tied the knot on October 29, 2015. The couple is proud parents of a cute daughter Hinaya Heer and now they are expecting their second child soon. Geeta Basra, who rose to fame after starring in The Train along with Emraan Hashmi, recently spoke about why she never returned to work after her marriage with Harbhajan. She said that she would consider returning to work when she is ready and that women should follow their passions and not be defined by ‘motherhood’ alone.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Geeta Basra said, I have grown up with a working mum, who has raised her family so well… Whatever we have today is because of her. I take that as my inspiration. I don’t women should give up on any of their passions. Being a mother is the most rewarding and fulfilling role I’ve ever had in my life. I’ve loved every moment being with Hinaya. It was a personal choice that I didn’t want to work… I was enjoying motherhood so much, and enjoying her milestones, and making sure that I’m there for every single moment of hers — her first walk, her first laugh, her first word.”
She added, “I enjoy what I used to do, and when the time comes, and when I’m ready, I will definitely head back to work.”
It was in March, when Geeta and Harbhajan announced the pregnancy news by sharing adorable family pictures on social media where their daughter is shown excited to be a big sister.
