Remarriage is not just about having a new partner, but it also comes with the stepchildren’s managing difficulties. First of all, it is a normal thing for kids not to embrace their stepmoms. Finally, however, things begin to fall back to place over time and then it becomes an unbreakable bond. While India’s remarriage pattern is not considered favourable, these days remarriages in Bollywood are widely accepted.
So let’s look at some of those stepmoms from Bollywood who managed to be on good terms with their stepkids:
Trishala is Sanjay Dutt’s daughter and Richa Sharma’s first wife. But with Manyata Dutt, Sanjay is now married. Manyata disclosed that making mother-like relationships with Trishala was not an easy task for her. They accepted each other, however, and shared a very friendly relationship. In reality, together with Sanjay Dutt, the mother-daughter duo is often seen spending some quality time. Manyata Dutt said, “That’s my path I’ve done from Manya Aunty to Daughter.” Simultaneously, Manyata said, “I was a Trishala recognition aunt 12 years ago, but I’m a daughter today. I’m really proud of her. She’s just messing with me. We are in constant contact. I’m really happy with my Bonding.’ How adorable! right?
Salman Khan and Helen
Salim Khan, without divorcing his first wife, Salma Khan, married Bollywood actress Helen. She and her four stepchildren — Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan, and Arpita shared a great bond with each other. Not only that, Helen shares with Salma Khan a sisterly bond.
Sara Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan
Saif Ali Khan and the children of Amrita Singh-Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan are seen to have a good bond with their stepmother Kareena Kapoor. Besides this, Sara Ali Khan’s pictures playing with Taimur are often shared on social media. Kareena and Sara are often seen as part of the parties and there is a strong bonding between them all.
Farhan Akhtar and Shabana Azmi
Javed’s first wife, Honey Irani, had children. He later married Shabana Azmi. They did not leave any stone unturned to let Farhan and Zoya never believe that she is their stepmother. Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar both have Shabana Azmi’s love and support and she has always praised both of them for their work.
Shahid Kapoor and Supriya Pathak
Shahid Kapoor is Pankaj Kapoor’s biological son and Neelima Azeem’s son, but his love for his stepmother, Supriya Pathak, is palpable. In an interview, Supriya Pathak said: “When he was six, I first met Shahid. He was a very warm guy, and we immediately took one another somehow. There was nothing I had to insist on, and he didn’t push me for anything. Unlike Pankaj, in all respects, he is once again a very good person and has a clean heart. Shahid Kapoor said he’s learned a lot from her stepmother and there’s a lot of evidence for us to believe that the love they have for each other is true!
Soni Razdan and Pooja Bhatt
Soni Razdan did all she could to make Pooja Bhatt and Rahul Bhatt know she loves them like their real mother. Even as the second wife of Mahesh Bhatt, she regarded her stepchildren as her own. Even with his step-mother Soni Razdaan and step-sisters Aalia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt maintains a friendly relationship.
Not only is Kiran Rao Aamir Khan’s wife, but she is also an Indian film producer, screenwriter, and director. She’s the Junaid and Ira stepmom. The children are with their own mother and their stepmother on great terms, which is not something you can find in today’s life. They were spotted together at many events and parties and based on what Aamir Khan said, the children immediately accepted Kiran and they love her.
