Supriya Pathak calls Shahid Kapoor ‘main anchor’ of their family, shares Mira Rajput is ‘a great cook’

Even then, I was working but it was a joint effort,” she continued. She also spoke about husband Pankaj Kapur, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput. All their friends in school would ask ‘Your mother is like this?’ ‘Kuch nahi karti wo (She doesn’t do anything)?’. So, filling the appetite toh bohot door ki baat hai. We are a normal family,” the actor answered. In that period, there were lots of downs. He is our main anchor. “When we were growing up, my mother (Dina Pathak) was playing all the mother roles that were there in the industry. I feel I am just starting. Everyone, including all the actors, would call my mother ‘Mata ji, Mumma, Mom or Maa.’ So, I and Ratna would always feel that we have a big family. I don’t have so much to say because I do something when I feel it is right. He is their elder brother bhai! They are very thoughtful actors. Supriya, who belongs to a filmy family, also got married into one. We could either do theatre or films. But they didn’t. A perfect picture of Supriya Pathak with husband Pankaj Kapur.
