Vidya Balan finally breaks her silence over pregnancy


Putting the speculation into rest, Bollywood versatile actress Vidya Balan said that she is not pregnant and she has just taken a short break from films due to some health issue which she is facing for couple of months. The rumor of Vidya being pregnant caught fire when Vidya opted out of Sujoy Ghosh’s ‘Durga Singh Rani’. It was also rumoured that the actress walked out of Mohit Suri's ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ due to pregnancy. But the ‘Dirty Picture’ actress denied the report of her being pregnant.

“I’m fed up of these rumours. These days people look at my stomach when they talk to me. Why are actors and actresses treated differently in this industry? Recently, a young actress did something to look different and she was castigated. Haven’t male actors got cosmetic jobs done?” (It seems she is referring to Anushka Sharma)

Vidya Balan who is not looking forward to motherhood so soon said, “Inshallah, I will have a baby—but not so soon. I’m not mentally ready for motherhood yet. It’s a daunting task to be responsible for another human being.”

Vidya feels being pregnant has nothing to do with age, “Motherhood has nothing to do with age. This is a predicament most working women face today since they are getting married in their 30s. Many of my friends have told me that it's fulfilling to wake up in the morning and look at your baby, clean him/her up--but it's all so consuming. This would leave you with little energy for anything else. I don't know how I'll deal with that”.

How’s life after marriage? “I go to my parents' house everyday and I'm back by dinnertime to be with Siddharth. I am enjoying the best of both the worlds. My sister, her husband and their kids have shifted to Khar. The kids are so fascinating. But as I said, I am not mentally ready to have my own kids yet. Give me some time, please”, she smiles. 

Vidya Balan married UTV head honcho Siddharth Roy Kapoor in 2012.
