We all know how celebrities are often asked about a visit from the stork once they tie the knot. While some choose to invade the question, Vidya Balan is not the one to stay mum when constantly pestered with this question.
In a recent explosive interview with Mid-day when she was
quizzed about her frequent visits to the hospital, she angrily
bursted out, "It was annoying. I could be going to a clinic for an
acne too! Why is it that every time a woman, post marriage, visits
a doctor, there are whispers of her pregnancy? I don't think it's
anyone's business except mine and my husband's (producer Siddharth
Roy Kapur). It was a serious invasion on our privacy, but our
country is such. Neighbours and relatives ask us."
She further added, "The day I got married, one of my uncles told
me at the wedding venue, 'Next time I see you (her and Siddharth),
I should be looking at three people, not two'. This was even before
our wedding pictures could be clicked. I politely laughed because
we hadn't even decided on our honeymoon destination then. What is
this baby obsession? I am not a baby-making machine. Anyway, the
world population is on a rise. If some people don't have children,
We hope that the gossipmongers get your message loud and clear
and stop prying in your personal life, Vidya!
Meanwhile on the work front, Vidya will be next seen in Begum
Jaan which revolves around the trauma faced by displaced women in a
brothel during the partition of India and has her essaying the role
of a madam of a brothel.
