Shriya Saran Reveals Why She Kept Her Pregnancy A Secret, 'I Wanted To Be Fat And Not Worry About..'

Shriya Saran has been making the headlines for her stint in the recently released film, Drishyam 2. Shriya is a phenomenal actress, and she has proved her acting mettle several times in the past. Not only in Hindi cinema, but the diva has also worked in South Indian and American cinema. She is married to Russian entrepreneur, Andrei Koscheev, and they were blessed with a baby girl, Radha on January 10, 2021. 

However, Shriya had kept her pregnancy news a secret from the media. In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, the actress stated that she was scared of the media writing unsolicited articles about her pregnancy. Shriya mentioned that she kept it a secret because she wanted to be fat and enjoy that six months with Radha. In her words:

“There is a lot of fear. I feel one of the main reasons why I did not speak about my pregnancy was of course that I wanted to make it as my own time and spend time with myself and have those six months with Radha and be fat and whatever and not worry about what people write about me and just concentrate on my child. So one strong reason was that.”

In the same conversation, Shriya also mentioned that she had kept her pregnancy hidden as she was scared of not getting work. The actress added how the film industry expects actresses to look a certain way in order to get featured in more movies. She said:

“But the other reason was that I was scared that if I speak about my pregnancy people will take that much longer time to come back and give me work. It’s a visual medium and people expect you to look a certain way.”


However, as Shriya never announced her pregnancy in public, she came back to the industry and already had three movies in her kitty. Further, in the interview, Shriya proudly recalled how she had shed all her pregnancy weight by the time her baby was only nine months old. She stated:

“So when I came back and spoke about my pregnancy, I was already working. So I had already signed like three films. Radha was nine months old and I had already shed all my pregnancy weight. There is that pressure.”
