Bollywood actress, Neha Dhupia had tied the knot with the man of her dreams, Angad Bedi in a hush-hush wedding on May 10, 2018. The couple had embraced parenthood with the arrival of their daughter, Mehr Dhupia Bedi, on November 18, 2018. After two years, on October 3, 2021, the family of three had turned four with the arrival of their son, Guriq.
Neha Dhupia is enjoying her motherhood journey with her two munchkins, Mehr and Guriq. The gorgeous mommy of two often talks about the need for a change in respect of pregnant women working. However, Neha has been trolled for not losing weight after delivery but she had paid no heed to the hatred she has received. Now, in an interview with Pinkvilla, the actress questioned the trolls, who target new mommies for their postpartum bodies.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Neha Dhupia opened up about gaining postpartum weight. She also mentioned that after delivering her second child, Guriq, she had become the target of trolls. Sharing that the post-delivery phase is the most difficult one and all moms go through it, Neha stated:
“Once you have baby, you don’t have time to check the internet. So it's fine, but one of the times that you do it's not nice. You know people don’t realise as a mother and as a child, you go through the most important phase in your life which is the post trimester. It is the hardest and it is tough enough what we do as moms. It's tough that you don’t wake up looking even half like this. You are in shambles. You are falling apart to come out even like I don’t even know between inside and outside 80 stitches so be kind to this person.”
Neha Dhupia also questioned the trolls and shared that pregnancy is not an easy journey for any woman. She mentioned how a person, who hasn't been through the traumatising experience writes negatively about a new mom. She added:
“And you know this person A- who are you who's writing this? Are you a man who has never been through it, whoever sitting and writing this? Are you a woman who has never had a baby and writing this? So you have no idea. Are you the person who had the baby and writing this? That’s the worst. So, who are you? What gave you the authority? I mean, you know literally what's your superpower that you just click six words and do like headline out of it or throw someone. What's my superpower? I can give life. Can you match that?”
Further in the conversation, Neha praised her husband, Angad Bedi for always standing by her side and encouraging her. Neha further added that Angad has been super supportive to her and even accompanied her to the gym on her first day. Recalling her first workout experience after delivering Guriq, Neha said:
“Hats off to him. He is always on my side and I keep telling him about my first day at the gym. He and I now don’t go at the same time because of the kids. But that first day, he was like- just listen I'm gonna go with you, literally holding my hands through like the first workout after an entire year coz you have your stitches, you have your weight, you feel odd, you are nursing your child, you feel very very heavy all the time. So we are a mix of everything.”
On the work front, Neha was last seen in the movie, A Thursday.
