TV host Mini Mathur is mother to five year-old son Vivaan and four month-old daughter Sairah who was born at Breach Candy Hospital in August 2008. Mini had opted out of Indian Idol 4 as she was pregnant with her baby girl.
Mini Mathur is married for nine years to Kabir Khan, a documentary filmmaker, who also directed Yash Raj Films' Kabul Express. Kabir is now shooting his second Yash Raj Film New York starring John Abraham, Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh.
She believes that, "Managing the career and family after having a baby is possible only when you know how to fix-up priorities in life. For me both are very important and I do not want to sacrifice on any of them. The trick that I follow is that I forget about home when I'm at work and forget about work when I'm at home. But since my son is very small now I do not follow this strictly. I need to supervise him always and remote control him with the help of my mother in-law and husband. We barely leave him unattended with a maid. I always try to pick him up from school and put him to sleep at night. I also take out time for family holidays when I enjoy with my kid and husband exclusively," says Mini.
About her husband Kabir Khan and marriage:
I think the most important and essential ingredient is the bond of friendship which comes above everything else. If you are the best of friends you'll stick together, come what may.And that's what has helped us as a couple. We've been through everything together, shared everything with each other and still are the best of friends even after so many years.
I don't do anything without consulting him and neither does he. I think there are many things which you need to speak and discuss with somebody. You want to speak your mind and then want to know how would that help you in the future. There are times when you are completely muzzled and don't know what to do and I think by talking it out to your partner, you get a very clear perspective of the situation.
