Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt is a new mother. The Darlings star welcomed her first child Raha with her husband Ranbir Kapoor back in November last year. However, after the birth of her child, there was a lot of chatter online that the actress quickly lost her pregnancy weight. However, she says that it wasn’t done unnaturally.
Alia Bhatt says she didn’t lose her pregnancy weight unnaturally: ‘The doctors advised me to only push harder in my workouts post 12 weeks, and I did that’
Speaking to Vogue India, Alia Bhatt said, “My job is a visual medium so I do need to present myself in a certain way, sometimes also for continuity. Even so, I wasn’t hard on myself because I was so proud of what my body had done when I delivered Raha. I know everyone believes that I lost weight unnaturally but the truth is that I can’t even get my wisdom tooth extracted at the moment since I’m breastfeeding and can’t be given anesthesia. Many folks are under the impression that individuals who work in the visual medium do unnatural things to their bodies to get back in shape post-delivery. That’s why I felt like it was important to document parts of my fitness journey on Instagram. I didn’t put any pressure on myself. The doctors advised me to only push harder in my workouts post 12 weeks, and I did that.”
The actress said that she is yet to get back to her pre-pregnancy eight. She said, “And I’m still not back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I’m almost there; just a kilogram away. But I did everything naturally, both during and post-pregnancy. I started going on 15-minute walks and doing breathing exercises as it improves blood flow. I avoided checking my weight every day like many people do when they work out religiously. I would step on the scale maybe once in two weeks. You need to be consistent and let change happen at its own pace. My mother-in-law even made me those ‘gond ke laddus’ that I ate for six weeks. People need to understand that putting on weight during pregnancy is not a result of eating too much; it’s because you’re making life inside you and that life needs that extra weight. It has to be in sync with your BMI, of course, and you should consult a professional if you have questions but you’re supposed to put on a certain amount of weight. It’s completely okay.”
On the work front, Alia Bhatt has an exciting year ahead with the release of Netflix’s Heart of Stone with Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan. She also has Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. The film stars Ranveer Singh, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi.
