I’m lucky I was born to feminist parents. I realised this obviously very late in life because I wasn’t ever told “This is feminism.” Infact, I don’t think my parents really knew it themselves. Feminism doesn’t always need to be explicit. It could simply mean you, as a woman, are equal to any man. And that’s what I was made to believe right from the beginning. I grew up knowing that I could be anything I want. I could play whatever games I liked. I played ghar-ghar and cricket.. learned Kathak and raced on my bike. My mother never stopped me from doing anything that a girl “isnt supposed to do”.. and Papa never decided what I can / cannot wear. I went out with my male friends. I decided to quit college and become an actress. I lived alone in Delhi and then Bombay and experimented with life, relationships and careers. Even today, there is no “pressure” to get married.. my parents want me to succeed in my career and never be dependent on anyone. I live my life on my own terms and the day I decide to share it with someone I know it’s going to be my choice of person and time. Frankly, I know all this is not extra-ordinary. It’s no big deal.. at least not for me because I haven’t seen things any other way in my house. But I’m aware that this is a privilege. And I’m grateful. Today I can proudly say that my upbringing made me a more empowered female and my brother a more empathetic male. I’m blessed to be your #daughter Maa, Papa. @kumkumkamra @ravikamra
A source close to the actress says, “Kritika is very close to her parents and they have always encouraged her to be successful in her career and accomplish all her dreams. Her upbringing is the reason she is one of the empowered and successful women achievers in the country today”.
Kritika informs, “Since my childhood, I was always told I am a woman who is equal to a man. My mother never stopped me from doing anything that a girl “isn’t supposed to do” and papa never decided what I can or cannot wear. I went out with my male friends. I decided to quit college and become an actress. I lived alone in Delhi and then Mumbai and experimented life, relationships and careers.”
