Anushka Sharma was last seen in Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero. The film failed to do well at the box office but Anushka, who played the role of a wheelchair-bound NASA scientist in the film, was hailed for her performance.
Since Zero, Anushka hasn’t signed any film and this has given fuel to the rumours of her being pregnant. In a recent interview with Filmfare, the actress, however, put a hold on all such rumours. She, in fact, went on to slam such rumours.
She said, “Yeah. If you’re married then people ask, Is she pregnant? They love to read into something when there really isn’t anything.”
Anushka said that people should allow celebrities to live their life freely. She said, “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.”
She went on to say, “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.”
Anushka was previously in UK with Virat Kohli, during the World Cup 2019. After India lost to New Zealand in semi-finals of the championship, the couple stayed in UK for a while before returning to India.
The pictures of them going on dinner and lunch dates went viral on social media.
