On 19 July, the popular 90s actress, who has worked in films like Diljale, English Babu Desi Mem, Kal Ho Naa Ho and Hum Saath Saath Hain shared a photo with her 12-year old son Ranveer.

Calling her son 'a source of strength and positivity', the actress also wrote that concealing facts from children in 'an effort to protect them from the pain and realities of life' might just have an opposite effect.
