Getting married and having kids soon after has become a social stigma in our society. We must not forget that pregnancy is something sacred, and a very personal news to be either speculated or propagated.
But there are people who always makes suspection about our bollywood divas who recenytly got married like Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor and all about their pregnancy issue. Have they got marroed just to have babies, they will embrace motherhood when they decide to do so and make an announcement themselves. Why people are stalking and probing over such nuisance rumors. Just because they are public figure, judging mentality starts right from the outfits that one chooses to wear, which is even worse.
If a married actress opts to wear maxi dresses, jumpsuits or hoodies then the internet wastes no minute to ask if she’s pregnant? And then if the same actress found in a body-hugging dress, we instatnly conclude that ‘Oh, is that a baby bump?’ I mean, can’t we just look at an actress normally like how we would do before she was married?
Here, check out all those times when Deepika, Anushka, Priyanka made headlines for pregnancy rumours.
Shunning down pregnancy speculations ,Anushka said “Yeah. If you’re married then people ask, Is she pregnant? They love to read into something when there really isn’t anything. 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. 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.”
Deepika Padukone too had recently said, “It will happen when it has to happen. Motherhood trumps being married. That’s what I hear from people who have had children. Of course, it will happen at some point but no, I think it is unfair to put women through that, to put a couple through that. I guess the day we stop asking the questions is when we will bring about change.”
We wonder if this mentality will ever change but we can at least try to look beyond an actress’ pregnancy and personal space and focus on their work life instead. Can we?
