Vidya Balan fighting both pregnancy and divorce rumors
Rumors are almost an integral part of a Bollywood celebrity’s life. But for Vidya Balan things are becoming quite difficult as she has been constantly bugged by rumors since the beginning of this year. During the March rumors began circulating that Vidya is pregnant. The reason these rumors had shot up was the fact that she opted out of the two film projects that she was a part of. The first was a film with ‘Kahaani’ director Sujoy Ghosh, opposite Irrfan Khan. The film was supposed to go to the floors this May. But according to one of Vidya’s friends, "Vidya has told him that he can go ahead with another actress, but Sujoy says that he will wait for her. But, that will of course leave Irrfan with a gaping hole in his date diary in May."
The other film was Mohit Suri directed ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ from the Bhatt camp that features Emraan Hashmi and Rajkummar Rao. However producer Mahesh Bhatt denied that Vidya has left the project, “She asked for the details before she left for the US. Why would she make enquiries if she didn't want to do my film?" Vidya’s friend also said that pregnancy has nothing to do with Vidya leaving the project rather it was the fatigue of doing back-to-back film shoots. But the pregnancy rumors kept popping up from time to time as the actor also seemed to put on little weight.
In an interview to a leading daily in April Vidya finally spoke about the issue, “I'm fed up of these rumours. These days people look at my stomach when they talk to me… 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.”
Unfortunately in addition to the pregnancy rumors the actor now has to deal with rumors about a possible divorce. The actor has been keeping low profile these days and apparently the reason is trouble in her marriage with producer Siddharth Roy Kapoor. Siddharth already married and divorced twice before tying the knot with Vidya in 2012. Industry sources are saying that Siddharth has gotten close with a newcomer actress. The two of them were spotted together couple of times and Siddharth is also promoting her heavily these days. Vidya is cancelling all her overseas appointments so that she can stay here and keep an eye on her husband. None of the reports can be confirmed at the moment and only time can tell what is happening in Vidya’s life.
