The series explores the multitasking nature of mothers and their various effort at the best possible upbringing for their children.

“I guess I am the seniormost parent over here, with a teenage daughter and a young son, said Karisma, adding: “For me, it”s MOM — Master of Multitasking. A mother is a master of multitasking, so as long as you know your priorities and you can multitask them, you can do everything in the world,” she said.

My kids are excited that I am working again, says Karishma Kapoor

On why she chose to enter the digital space at this stage, Karisma said: “When Ekta (Kapoor) approached me for the show and I heard this story, I just couldn”t say no. I feel this script is relevant today and being a mother has been the most important thing for me. I always said I”d keep all my awards on one side and my children on the other. My entire career is on one side and my kids are on the other. I think it teaches you a lot and it is relevant to so many mothers, and so many women out there. That”s why I just couldn”t say no.”

“Mentalhood” streams on ALT Balaji and Zee5 from March 11.
