The Queen of Indian television, Ekta Kapoor recently attended the Day 2 of India Today Conclave Mumbai 2019 and she talked about the newest chapter of her life - motherhood.

At the conclave, the single mother talked in length about being a mother and how she juggles this new chapter of her life with her hectic work schedule. She also talked about the pressure of being a perfect mother and how she deals with it.

Ekta said at the conclave, "I am making a show on motherhood with Karisma Kapoor called Mentalhood. It is about how women, who are mothers create pressure on other women. I have had so many people giving us advice. I even had a conversation with my boy. I told my 7-month-old baby that you don't have a father and I'm learning with you. The guilt is there. But perfection is a mirage and I will not be a perfect mother."

The producer had welcomed her baby boy in January through surrogacy. She even named her son Ravie Kapoor after her father Jeetender whose real name is Ravi Kapoor.

Ekta who opted for surrogacy, had even shared with her fans the reason why she chose the method on Twitter.

She revealed through a note on Twitter that she had been trying to get pregnant for the last seven years and her doctor had asked her to try various methods to get pregnant over the years. Ekta even thanked her consultant, Nandita Palshetkar who is an IVF specialist and shared her quote on Twitter with a thank you note.
