On nuclear family set-up

Madhu Chopra also said, “In my opinion, the nuclear family set-up should be thrown out of the window… My kids grew up with their maasi, mami, mama (aunts and uncles), and cousins. Family is most important to me and the same goes for the kids. In every interview Priyanka gives, she talks about family. Though I was always a working mother, I always made sure the kids were never left to themselves. My children love the joint family system. We throw family get-togethers at the drop of a hat. There are nine kids on my husband’s side and nine kids on my side. When the cousins get together, they have a blast. They are so close that you will never be able to tell the cousin from the real sibling. The bond is so strong. Even after me, they will be there for each other.”

Madhu regrets sending Priyanka to boarding school

In a recent interview with India Today, Madhu had opened up about the one thing she would change about the way she raised Priyanka. She spoke about sending Priyanka to boarding school as a child, calling it ‘not the best decision of her life’. She had said, “I wouldn’t have sent her to the boarding school. I still cry when I think about it and I still feel guilty. My fault was that I sent her to a boarding school. Not the best decision of my life.”
