It is not true that every time a married lady gains weight, she is pregnant. This is a misperception that actor Bipasha Basu faces on a regular basis, but she isn’t giving up.
“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,” said Bipasha in conversation with HT.
“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”.
After courting for a long time, Basu married actor Karan Singh Grover in 2016. The actor recognises that people genuinely want the best for her, which is why the rumours have no negative impact on her.
“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.
In terms of her work life, she was last seen in the web project Dangerous last year, and no news regarding her upcoming project has been released. She acknowledges that the pandemic prompted her to put work on hold.
“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,” reveals Basu, who started working at the age of 15 as a model.
