A baby announcement following a hush-hush private wedding ceremony? You guessed it right – Bollywood celebrities have often tread on this path whenever they have got pregnant before marriage. Strict Indian conservative society or their celebrity image – what goes into taking these decisions? Hollywood has mostly been candid about their pregnancies from Jessica Alba to Angelina Jolie. All have reported their pregnancies much before they announced their weddings. So what stops our Bollywood celebs? Let’s take a look at some of the Bollywood celebrities who became pregnant way before marriage but none other than one claiming it to the public:
Sridevi was the only actress in tinsel town to publicly claim that she was pregnant with her elder daughter before marriage to Boney Kapoor. According to reports, Sridevi was around seven months pregnant when she got married. Media had kept prying eyes on Boney Kapoor then because he was still married to his first wife. After the former couples’ divorce, Boney Kapoor and Sridevi married. Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi was born just a few months after she got married in the year 1996.
6. Konkona Sen Sharma
Bengali bombshell Konkona Sen Sharma married co-actor Ranveer Shorey in a private ceremony at her residence in the year 2010 after they dated for a long time. She gave birth to a boy early in 2011, which indicated that she was pregnant before tying the knot. The marriage too was announced hastily, which made way for further speculation. It is widely believed that the marriage occurred in such haste due to Konkona’s pregnancy. She did not acknowledge this fact but come on? We could guess!
Sarika was Kamal Hasan’s second wife whom he dated while being married to his first wife. He later got a divorce from her to be with Sarika. Sarika got pregnant with her first child Shruti Hasan when they were dating and living together. Sarika and Kamal Hasan married much later and later gave birth to their second daughter Akshara. Now this is nothing short of a Bollywood film with love triangles and heartbreaks. A movie on their love story, anyone?
