Mumbai, Apr 28 (): Bollywood’s actress Genelia D’Souza, who is usually seen along with her husband-actor Riteish Deshmukh, was not seen at the IIFA awards in the US leading to rumours she might be pregnant.
Riteish was spotted leaving alone for the IIFA awards event held in Tampa, Florida, at the Mumbai international airport on Tuesday. He was accompanied by a host of other Bollywood personalities, but, his better half was not by his side. So, the rumour of Genelia is perhaps expecting and hence chosen to stay at home is doing rounds in Bollywood circles.
This is not the first time that Genelia has been caught up with such pregnancy rumours. She was seen covering her belly at a fashion event few months back and it was said she was supposedly hiding her tiny baby bump.
After few days, the pregnancy rumours again surfaced during the opening of her husband Riteish Deshmukh’s Marathi film ‘Yellow’. Her baby bump was prominent by then. However, her spokesperson had denied to comment on the reports.
Interestingly, Honey Bhagnani, daughter of Vashu Bhagnani and Riteish’s younger brother Dheeraj Deshmukh’s wife is also pregnant. Both Riteish and Dheeraj got married in February 2012. It will be a good coincidence when both their better halves get pregnant at the same time.
Meanwhile, actress Vidya Balan is also caught up with rumours of being pregnant. Earlier this year, the actress was actively promoting the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) weekend and awards, but her absence from the main event has left behind many questions.
Balan has recently removed herself from the latest project of Sujoy Ghosh and lately another project ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ produced by Mahesh Bhatt. Even though such incidences strongly confirm the actress might be pregnant, Vidya Balan has denied the news of her pregnancy.
In Genelia’s case, neither Genelia nor her husband Riteish has commented anything in their case. All will come to light only with time.
