Lot of people think that when an actress is pregnant they can’t act anymore. Well that’s completely wrong as many seem to think that actors can’t work while being pregnant or after pregnancy. Many actors in Hollywood still work after having kids so why is this rule so hard to understand in the Hindi world of Cinema?
One actress doesn’t thinks she would need to stop working or acting just if she became pregnant.
Newly married actress Rani Mukerji, who had a hush-hush wedding with longtime beau and YRF scion Aditya Chopra in Italy in April this year, says that her marital status won’t affect her work even after pregnancy. The ‘Mardaani’ actress even believes that her pregnancy won’t come in the way of it as long as the director is comfortable to work with her.
It’s noted that after marriage most actresses often cut down on their work. When rani was asked about her opinion on it, she said,
“Not really… Women try to cut down on work because they are pregnant and during that time they are physically not capable. In Hollywood, many actors work when they are pregnant. If a director is ready to work with me during my pregnancy, I will surely work.”
The actress further added that working post marriage also depends “how supportive her husband is.”
Talking about her hubby Aditya Chopra she said,
“Adi (Aditya Chopra) is a very supportive husband. I don’t think he would want me to slow down. I don’t know what my decision is going to be when I become a mother… I don’t know how I will continue my journey in films. But I am in love with my job.”
When Rani was asked if she would be comfortable with shooting intimate scenes even after marriage, she said that doing a particular scene is an actor’s “individualistic choice”. Sharing her views she said,
“It also depends on whether she comes from a family that is not very modern in their outlook, or is she married into a family that doesn’t give her the liberty to do certain things.“I am married to Aditya, who is both a producer and director, and I think his mindset is very modern. I don’t think he will ever come in my way of deciding what I want to do or what kind of films I want to be a part of. For us, a film means work. It is not something we look at from a common man’s point of view,” she added.
And lastly like any wife would wish the best for her husband and family, so does Rani for Adi!
“Definitely, I want this film (‘Mardaani’) to work. In fact, from now on I will not only pray that my films work, I will also pray that all YRF films are superhits (laughs),” Rani said.
