Actress & a doting mother to her 6-year-old son, Kyun Utthe Dil Chhod Aaye actress Kanica Maheshwari has made a comeback with a thud. With an impressive major makeover to playing a diametrically opposite role as compared to her previous hit character in Diya Aur Baati Hum, Kanica Maheshwari has been gaining recognition yet again for playing a widow & is seen sans make-up on the show. 

The actress often shares glimpses of her life and her motherhood journey on social media. Kanica has also been experimenting with her sartorial choices & does not shy away from pulling off bold looks. 

Social media is quite a judgemental place, Kanica shares some comments which rather left her amused, ''Playing Meenakshi gave me so much popularity & I'm forever grateful for that, but also the fact that sometimes people forget to draw a line & feel entitled to come up with suggestions I'm not okay with. Earlier I would get comments like 'Meenakshi wouldn't dress like this'. Now they write to me, 'You're a mother, they don't dress like this.' I want to understand do men get these questions too. How is a father supposed to dress? It's not even funny anymore. I am actually seeking an answer.''

I am a mother because I can nurture a life within but I'm just human with real emotions, real needs & desires. I don't want you to call mothers goddesses or superwomen because when with an added adjective comes a lot many responsibilities too. You're trying to paint us perfect but we are far from it.

Sharing her pet peeve, Kanica quickly adds comments like 'Hey you don't look like a mother'. She adds, ''How about me pointing out 'Hey you don't look sensible?'. While growing up in a Marwari family, we had restrictions on what we wore in public, then you get married, you start living it up and wear what you like & then you become a mother & they are back at it, trying to control us, conform us. I am a mother because I can nurture a life within but I'm just human with real emotions, real needs & desires. I don't want you to call mothers goddesses or superwomen because when with an added adjective comes a lot many responsibilities too. You're trying to paint us perfect but we are far from it. Please do not put us, mothers, on a pedestal. We don't need it. Just let us be.''

Well, we bet that all the 'sensible' ones out there would agree to her!
