theindusparent caught up with the power couple, Lara Dutta Bhupathi and Mahesh Bhupathi, in an exclusive interview and figured out how they manage to raise their daughter in the limelight. The power couple was speaking at an event marking the launch of Good Knight's new fabric roll-on mosquito repellent.

Both Lara and Mahesh also feel that in this day and age it is very important for kids to spend maximum time outdoors, which is why they have limited Saira's screen time at home and they make sure that she is physically quite active.

"I and Mahesh both will agree that when we were kids in our generation playing out the whole day and night was something so common and a part of our lives as kids. But now sending your kids to play even outside of your building premises is something I as a mother am not comfortable with," said Lara.

Taking care of the child is also the father's concern and not only the mother's responsibility, said Mahesh jokingly. He also added that he has started giving Saira here first tennis lessons now.
