Mohit Malik and wife Addite Malik are all geared up to embrace parenthood. The countdown for the baby’s arrival has started with Addite having her delivery date in the first week of May. The to-be-parents are getting wiser with every passing day, and aim to be responsible as parents.
In a candid exclusive chat with IWMBuzz.com, Mohit Malik talks about his family gearing up for the big moment. “My mother is here with us. My brother was also here, but has now gone back to Delhi. My father plans to come later after the baby arrives. As for Addite, she will complete her full term soon and the baby can come out any moment now.”
Mohit is home at the moment with Addite and his mother, having the best of time. “I just go down for a jog in my building, at the parking lot where there are not much people. Otherwise, we are home, eating good food, watching films etc. We are enjoying time with Mama. So all is nice at the moment.”
Ask Mohit whether he is excited or nervous as he awaits the big moment of his life, and he states, “I feel excited more than being nervous. We are looking forward to the new chapter in our lives. I love being with kids. I am waiting for him / her to come out. Taking care of kids as parents is a completely new ball game. I am excited for the experience.”
Talking of parenthood, Mohit claims that every individual should go through this feeling and bond. “It is a whole new experience of taking care of a child as parent. Along with the child, the parents also grow. Addite and I are in fact doing a lot of things to become better individuals. Parenting is a big challenge in itself. You will have to be very careful when you talk and behave in front of the child. Kids learn by watching the elders. So we actually point at each other and try to avoid the negativity in us. We are trying to be more positive towards life. We are going through the self-improvement journey before our baby arrives.”
Mohit relates this new responsibility to a new character he plays onscreen. “It is a new character which I am going to play. I am doing my research work on being a good parent (smiles).”
Related to work, Mohit is looking at many things. Ask him about Khatron Ke Khiladi, and he states, “Talks are on. But there is nothing that I can talk about it now. Every time I have been offered this show, I have been busy with other shows. Let us see what happens.”
Mohit is looking at the platform of web too for his next challenging work. “I am open for web as well as TV. There is a lot of good work happening on the web. Having said this, I will take my time. As of now, I am waiting for Addite to get into labour.”
Best of luck, Mohit and Addite!!
