Mohnish Singh |Nov 21, 2019

Neha Dhupia is always known for her straightforwardness. In her latest interview, she opened up about post-pregnancy weight issues, trolling and much more.

Neha Dhupia is one of those very few actresses who never shy away from expressing their opinions openly. She does not censor herself when it comes to calling a spade a space and that is perhaps what sets her apart from other celebs in the tinsel town of Bollywood. Neha Dhupia recently sat down with a popular entertainment portal and opened up about a lot of things, including facing body image issues post-pregnancy, lack of work after getting pregnant and much more.

Talking about the lack of work after getting pregnant, Neha Dhupia told the publication that neither before becoming a mother nor after her delivery she got good offers as far as movies are concerned. "Firstly, I believe that you cannot wait for work to come to you. We all have our platforms today and we all have shops. Secondly, when you become a mum, yes, there is a perception. The last thing I did before pregnancy was Tumhari Sulu (2017), for which I won an award. But despite that, I did not get any offers as far as movies are concerned, post-pregnancy. I did not get any offers after I gave birth either. Now, I am in talks for a web show, so let's see about that."

Neha Dhupia went on to add that she had to face body image issues after her delivery last year. "I did not have insecurity when I was pregnant. I started facing body image issue was after I gave birth. I am not saying that people need to lose weight, being perfect is everyone's own version. But what happens mentally is that everything acts up together. I remember I was trolled very badly where a female journalist wrote something on my weight, and I wrote back. It is not fair to trouble a new mum over her body weight," the actress said in conclusion.

Neha Dhupia is married to Bollywood actor Angad Bedi. The couple welcomed their first child, a baby girl, on 18th November, 2018.
