The video immediately sparked off pregnancy rumours yet again. Here are some of the reactions:
This isn’t the first time Vidya has been under the scanner with people speculating her pregnancy. People wondered that her frequent visits to the clinic might be because of her pregnancy. However, Vidya slammed all the rumours. “It was annoying. I could be going to a clinic for an acne too! Why is it that every time a woman, post marriage, visits a doctor, there are whispers of her pregnancy?”, she said.
In a media interaction, she spoke in detail about her pregnancy rumours and said, “I don’t think it’s anyone’s business except mine and my husband’s (Siddharth Roy Kapur). It was a serious invasion of our privacy, but our country is such. Neighbours and relatives [constantly] ask us (unnecessary questions). The day I got married, one of my uncles told me at the wedding venue, ‘Next time I see you [her and Siddharth], I should be looking at three people, not two’. This was even before our wedding pictures could be clicked. I politely laughed because we hadn’t even decided on our honeymoon destination then.”
In some other interview, she said, “What is this baby obsession? I am not a baby-making machine. Anyway, the world population is on a rise. If some people don’t have children, it’s fine.” Vidya and Siddharth are one much in love couple. In an interaction when they got married, Vidya shared, “Siddharth accepts me the way I am. In the first few months of marriage, I got bogged down by the notion that I had to juggle between handling home duties and starting work on a new film. He explained I need not be a superwoman. He understands that if he could go out to work and end up neglecting things at home, so could I.”
On the work front, Vidya Balan is ready to make her debut in Telugu film industry with a biopic of South Superstar, NTR. Vidya will be playing the role of NTR’s wife Basavatarakam in the film.
