Rumours about Anushka Sharma’s pregnancy have been making the rounds for some time now. In fact, they started soon after the actress got married to cricketer Virat Kohli in a dreamy wedding in Italy last year.
Some websites are even carrying reports about how the reason why Anushka hasn’t announced any film after Zero is that she’s expecting.
But all of this has amounted to nothing. Anushka, in a recent Hindustan Times interview, shut down all the pregnancy rumours, calling them ‘absurd’ and ‘silly’.
“That [spreading rumours] is something people will do anyway. It’s completely unnecessary and silly as you ultimately can’t hide such a thing. You can hide a marriage but not pregnancy. I feel every female actor goes through it, so people marry you off even before you are hitched and make you a mother before you are pregnant,” she said. “I don’t pay attention to it and just laugh these things off since I find them hilarious. When I read about such stuff, I think, ‘where do such absurd things come from?’ Right now, I’m literally working round-the-clock.”
As for Anushka not signing any movie after Zero, the actress has already earlier said she wants to take some time off before she gets involved with another project.
For now, she is waiting for the release of Zero, which will also have Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. The movie will hit theatres on December 21.
