Anushka Sharma opens up on pregnancy rumour


Anushka Sharma, who is married to cricketer Virat Kohli strongly reacted to pregnancy rumour. The actress squashes off the pregnancy rumour during an interview with Filmfare.

She said, "Yeah. If you're married then people ask, Is she pregnant? They love to read into something when there really isn't anything."

The actress further said that people should allow celebrities to live their life freely. She said, "An actress gets married and the next thing they talk about it is, Is she pregnant? When she’s dating it’s like, Shaadi karne wale hai ki nahi? It’s crude. You should allow people to live their life. What’s the need to jump the gun? Then put someone in a position where they end up clarifying unnecessarily. What irks me is the clarification part. Do I need to clarify? Nahi! But then that’s how it is."

She went on to say, "Any actress, who gets married... sabke baare mein they’ve said something. Someone could be wearing clothes that are loose. That’s because they’re trendy. But they’re said to be pregnant. It’s like a monkey on your back. You can’t do anything about it. You just ignore it."

Further talking to Filmfare in an interview, she said that she got married to Virat at 29 because she was in love.

When asked about actors tying the knot at a young age, Anushka said the audience doesn’t really care about their marital status in real life. “Our audience is way more evolved than our industry is. Audiences are just interested in seeing actors on screen. They don’t care about your personal lives, whether you’re married or whether you’re a mother. We need to get out of this headspace. I got married at 29, supposedly young for an actress. But I did it because I was in love. (Smiles) And I am in love. Marriage was a natural progression,” she said. Anushka added that while a man never worries about his career when getting married, why should a woman?

She talked about Virat’s qualities and what attracts her more about him. “His honesty is something I deeply value. I’m an honest person and have suffered on account of that. He’s brutally honest too. I’m so happy that I met someone like him because we both lead our lives with complete honesty. It’s so transparent and clean. I have a life partner with whom nothing is pretentious. Everything is real. Also, the fact that we both support each other. He’s someone, who’s constantly trying to get better professionally and as an individual. I’m also like that. We don’t take ourselves so seriously. We’re similar as people. That’s why we get along,” she said.

Virat and Anushka tied the knot in a secret wedding in Italy in December 2017.
