Mira used the occasion of the recent Mother’s Day to clarify her previous statements, reported Yahoo! “I was just speaking my mind; my intention was not to offend or hurt anyone. Could I have chosen my words better? Maybe. But I am not a seasoned actor and I don’t know how to be politically correct. I was speaking for a section of women who aren’t given their due,” she said in an interview.
She also pointed out that the six-month paid maternity leave bill passed in India recently was to enable a woman to spend more time with their babies. “It’s not just for physical recovery. Had that been the case, adoptive mothers wouldn’t have been eligible for it. It’s to nurture the bonding between a mother and her child. That’s all that I meant.”
