Bollywood divas are known to attract media frenzy and public attention when they tie the knot and settle into martial life
As inherent as it may get, rumours of pregnancy start doing the rounds when divas slow down on work front and focus on staying away from limelight. But, some stars have been targeted time and again over their pregnancy and here is how they handled it gracefully!
Sunny Leone: On April Fool’s Day, a news agency decided to prank people by letting out reports that the adult film star turned-Bollywood actor, Sunny Leone was pregnant. The news report went viral and Sunny herself took it upon herself to dismiss rumours through her Twitter account.
Kareena Kapoor: Bebo sizzled at an international event in Mumbai when Valerie Trierweiler arrived in India. She was dressed in a white saree and looked a little plumper than her usual diva self. People took notice of this minimal change and were quick to spread rumours of her being pregnant. According to news reports, she glowed and was seen covering her slightly bulging belly which sparked off the rumour mills.
Genelia D’souza: The actor was seen hiding her belly at the screening of hubby Riteish Deshmukh’s Marathi movie Yellow. Later at another fashion event, she was spotted hiding her belly again. She was also not seen accompanying her husband at the IIFA awards being held at Tampa Bay. After assessing Genelia’s body language and efforts to conceal her belly, rumour mills went over-drive with reports of her apparent pregnancy.
Vidya Balan: Speculations were rife about Vidya Balan being pregnant as the stunning actor had gained some kilos post her marital bliss with hubby Siddharth Roy Kapur. But the rumours were dismissed soon when Vidya took it upon herself and stated, “I am not in the right frame of mind to start a family and share Siddharth yet.”
Esha Deol: The Deol daughter was rumoured to be pregnant last year but the erstwhile actor instantly turned to Twitter and slammed the news reports. The 31-year-old actor married to businessman Bharat Takhtani tweeted, “Sweet of the media, but I’m NOT PREGNANT. Would let the world know when that happens as it would be a proud moment for us.”
