Despite hailing from the glam world, no one knew about Shruti Merchant’s pregnancy. In the same interview, when asked if it was a conscious decision to keep her pregnancy a secret, Dhruv Bhandari had retorted, “That definitely wasn’t the intention.

We do have a few names in mind though, so let’s see." (Also Read: Mohena Kumari Singh And Her Mother-In-Law's Twinning Pose Will Make You Say, 'Like Saas, Like Bahu')
