Neha Dhupia who will soon be embracing motherhood for the second time has now opened up about the struggles the actress is facing to get work due to her pregnancy. In the latest interview, she mentioned that several filmmakers dropped her from projects just because she is pregnant. She also added that even though she tried to ‘workaround’, but nothing could help her.
In a conversation with an e-portal, Neha said, “We feel that in the industry a lot has changed. As actors, we can try but it’s the ones who give the opportunity who are the real changemakers. There were so many makers that told me ‘Hey, Neha I’m sorry but you’re pregnant, you’ve got to step down. I was like ‘Give me a chance where we can workaround this’ and it was a clear ‘no’.”
Work-wise, Neha will be next seen in Behzad Khambata’s ‘A Thursday’ along with Yami Gautam, Maya Sarao, and Dimple Kapadia.
In July this year, Neha took to her Instagram handle and shared the news of her second pregnancy with fans and followers with a photo in which she can be seen flaunting her baby bump. Captioning her picture she wrote, “Took us 2 days to come with a caption…The best one we could think of was … Thank you, God. #WaheguruMehrKare.” Angad Bedi also shared the same picture on his Instagram handle and wrote, “New Home production coming soon. Waheguru mehr kare.”
