Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Is Pregnant So Obviously The Media Is Worried About Her Career

By  | 

Famous Indian actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan announced that she is with child and that gave the press exactly two seconds to consider the future of her film career. The Times of India reports that she has put on weight because of pregnancy which may cause her current film project to be deferred.

The Times reports:

Now the next big question is: ‘what happens to Ash’s films; Madhur Bhandarkar‘s Heroine and Raj Kumar Santoshi‘s Ladies and Gentleman?’

A source says, “Ash will definitely complete Madhur’s film.”TOI learnt that Madhur has barely finished six days shooting with Ash. And his film is not about to completed in a hurry. We also hear from unit hands that Ash has put on weight (as is natural in pregnancy). It is now to be seen whether Heroine gets completed on schedule or whether it will be deferred, till Ash returns to the movies after motherhood.

Leave it to a pregnant lady to throw a wrench in everyone’s schedule — and to the press for immediately insinuating that her career might suffer. Despite congratulatory messages from friends, family, and fans, the overarching narrative here is that Bachchan’s career prospects may dwindle because she has chosen to start a family. I doubt anyone would imply the same about her actor husband, Abhishek Bachchan.
