It’s not uncommon for female actors to be facing pregnancy speculations after their marriage, but Anushka Sharma is not someone to be affected by these. Since the actor has not signed any film after Zero, there were rumours afloat that she might be expecting.

Now, in a recent interview with Filmfare, Anushka has put all such speculations to rest. She said that people love to read into something that isn’t there. “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.”

“You 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.”

She added, “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.”

The Sui Dhaaga actor has been on a break from films after she did three movies in 2018 - Pari, Sui Dhaaga and Zero. She has been spending time with her husband Virat Kohli and was spotted in the stands during India’s final group stage match against Sri Lanka on Saturday, 6 July, in Headingley in Leeds.
