It is rightly said that there is no joy greater than that of motherhood. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing a little replica of yourself lying asleep in your arms. It really is an emotional rollercoaster ride! We’re sure that these feelings are pretty much the same for Bollywood’s famous ladies as well.
In the glitzy world of Bollywood, it has become imperative to stay in shape. In order to get back to the big screen, several Bollywood mothers have worked really hard to get that perfect shape. They have juggled getting back into shape and embracing motherhood flawlessly. Their efforts must definitely be appreciated.
So, we’ve put together a list of Bollywood actresses before, during and after their pregnancy phase. If you need a bit of inspiration to lose post-pregnancy weight, take it from them!
Of course, we had to start this list with this new mommy who is inspiring a lot of ladies for her magnificent post-pregnancy transformation. Kareena Kapoor Khan welcomed her first baby with Saif, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi on December 20, 2016. The first milestone that Kareena achieved was when she walked the ramp at the Lakme Fashion Week just 45 days after her delivery.
Since this picture, every time Kareena stepped out, she has practically stunned everyone with her steady weight loss. In just 5 months after Taimur’s arrival, Kareena has already lost close to 12 kilos. No wonder she looks fit and fab!

For starters, take one of the most beautiful women in the world! Before her pregnancy, she was clearly in shape. As its natural, she did put on a lot of weight when she was pregnant. She even faced a lot of flak from the media but she took it in her stride. Even after delivering her baby, she refused to start losing weight at once, claiming that she wanted to be a mother with the kind of body that her child currently needed. Hats off, Ash! And today, she looks as gorgeous as she did all those years ago, perhaps even more.
Shilpa Shetty was always famous for having the perfect body. She had never been even a stone overweight. But naturally, she gained a little weight while she was pregnant. Once her baby was born, this model-turned-actress took to yoga, which eventually transformed her, bringing her back in shape.
Here comes one of Bollywood’s finest actresses. Kajol had never been too sleek or slim. She didn’t care about what people had to say about her weight. But, she too has had a major transformation. While she put on a lot of weight during both of her pregnancies, looking at her today will have you staring in disbelief. Look how gorgeous and fit she looks in this last picture. Who would say that she’s the mother of two kids?
What a remarkable difference in Lara Dutta as well, don’t you agree? Before her pregnancy, she sported the charm of a little girl, with her petite frame and cute smile. During her pregnancy, she gained a bit of that natural weight, but never let it faze her. It is, after all, a part of life. But after her pregnancy, she transformed into a svelte and gorgeous lady. Gone is the schoolgirl charm and in its place has arrived a sophisticated and mature grace.
Who can forget the bubbly, vivacious lady who stole Riteish’s heart? While Genelia was always thin and waif like earlier, pregnancy did see her gaining a lot of weight. However, it’s remarkable to see how she turned that around. While she has only just delivered her second child, take a look at this last picture, where she had shed all of the excess weight post her first pregnancy. Doesn’t she look amazingly beautiful? Hats off to Genelia!
While she was almost a plain Jane before her pregnancy, she sported her baby bump with a glowing face and a proud back as she walked the ramp. But after delivering her boys, Malaika Arora soared back to the top, oozing the glamour that only she can emanate. She looks young, fit and super-stunning. Full marks to this beautiful lady!
Well, that pretty much sums up our list. A grand salute to these beautiful women, who worked hard to get back into shape post pregnancy and yet, continue to enjoy being mothers.
