Bipasha Basu opens up about the constant speculations about her being pregnant when she gains a little weight

Bipasha Basu: Speculations about my pregnancy will be there until people see me with a baby

Each time a married woman puts on weight doesn’t mean she is pregnant. This misconception is something that actress Bipasha Basu additionally constantly battles with, however, she isn’t tired of the fight.

“My family life is extremely important to me. And I know there have been a lot of speculations about me being pregnant, on and off when I put on weight,” Basu says, adding that she is likewise permitted to put on weight, regardless of her situation in the glamour industry.

“I know that I’m an ambassador of fitness. But there is a time when I can let go a little bit and live life a little bit. It is not that I’m becoming unhealthy. But the speculations are always going to be there till the time people see me with an actual baby.”

Basu got wedded to actor Karan Singh Grover in 2016 after dating for a long while. The actress comprehends that people wish well for her, and that is the reason these rumours don’t influence her in a negative way.

“They are wishing for a family for me, and it is a sweet thought. If that’s supposed to happen, it will happen. The constant scrutiny doesn’t bother me. They’re not saying something evil about me. It’s just that I’m not pregnant, so that’s sad,” expresses the 42-year-old.

With regards to her professional life, she was most recently seen in the web project, Dangerous, last year, and no declaration has been made with regards to her next project. She concedes that the pandemic forced her to put work on the back burner.

“I have not done anything for a long time. That has been a personal choice. Corona definitely had put a little bit of halt in my head. I didn’t want to take any unnecessary risks. So I was not even listening or reading any scripts. But now I’m pretty open to it,” says Basu.

Discussing further with regards to her decision, the Race (2008) actress shares  “This pandemic will soon be endemic, and we will have to coexist. We have to work our way around it. (Going forward) I will choose the correct project, and I think it will be my best work now because I have gone through so many processes of life in this time that I have not worked.”

In any case, she will not be a part of any rat race, or competition. “It is only going to be about my journey. It’s not going to be about competing with X, Y and Z actors. I never feel like I’m a part of any rat race. That’s not the way I have conducted my life or my career,” she wraps up.
