In an interview of an entertainment website Ekta said, “Currently, life is all about spending as much time as possible with my son. These days, I try and leave the office earlier than usual.” She added, “I bring Ravie to the office frequently and he spends time with my team. I have a huge support system in my mother and my team, so whenever I get busy with meetings, they keep him entertained.” She also revealed that Ravie even recognises a few people at work and is quite comfortable around them.
The producer also revealed that she regretted not setting up a creche for working mother’s in the office earlier. “Even when my son grows older, the creche will continue, because it is important for working mothers to be around their babies.In fact, I should have built it in my office a long time ago. I regret not having done that earlier,” Ekta said.
