Bollywood actress, Neha Dhupia strongly believes in women empowerment. In an interview, she shared her views about motherhood. Let's find out what else she said.
Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi became parents for the second time on October 3, 2021, as they had welcomed a baby boy. Both Neha and Angad are enjoying their parenthood phase for the second time and are ensuring to take good care of their little munchkin, whom they have not named yet.
Neha Dhupia doesn’t only play fierce roles on screen, but she is equally bold and strong in her real life as well. She has time and again proved that pregnancy can never be a limitation in a woman’s life. The actress worked even in the last few days of her two pregnancies. And now, Neha has again bounced back to work.
After welcoming her baby boy on October 3, 2021, Neha soon started working for the promotions of her film, Sanak which is released online on the OTT platform, Disney Plus Hotstar. Speaking to Mid-day about her film, Sanak, the actress, expressed her feelings about being a mother as well as pursuing her passion. She shared, “It was only towards the fag end of filming, Sanak that I realised I was pregnant. I shot the film in my first trimester.” Neha also revealed that taking a sabbatical was out of the question for her during both her pregnancies.
Going further in the interview, she shared that it’s essential to change societal attitude and show that motherhood has little impact on one’s professional life. Talking about the same, she said, “They make us stronger, not weaker. We don’t need to sacrifice either professional dreams or personal aspirations. I shot a movie when I was eight months pregnant. I did that because I had become another person the first time around. I didn’t want to go there again. I didn’t want to be in a dark and lonely space, sitting at home. I focussed on being happy.”
Neha Dhupia also added that she is proud that she was able to pull off two movies during her pregnancy. The actress said, “It was a big win to be back on Roadies when Mehr was 45 days old, and breastfeed her through its making. But is there scope to make it more inclusive for women to start families? Of course. We could be more relaxed if our personal decisions didn’t affect our careers.”
Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi had welcomed their first child, Mehr Dhupia Bedi, in 2018. On November 20, 2018, Neha had shared an adorable picture of her daughter’s tiny feet. Alongside it, she had written, “Mehr Dhupia Bedi says hello to the world.”
We are eagerly waiting for Neha and Angad to name their son soon!
