Vidya Balan's weight is laughing matter for Abhishek Bachchan


By Hindustan Times

Newlyweds Vidya Balan and her husband Siddharth Roy Kapur were the highlights at a recently held awards ceremony. The actor’s weight, was apparently a hot topic of discussion, so much so that it was often brought up in conversation by the hosts Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh.

A source says, “As Vidya went up to collect her award, Abhishek and Riteish joked about her being pregnant. Ritesh said, ‘By the way, it’s very unfortunate that even before Siddharth, Sujoy (Ghosh) had got Vidya pregnant!’ The entire fraternity gathered at the do went still for a few seconds before bursting into laughter when they realised that Riteish was talking about Sujoy’s film Kahaani (2012).”

Vidya, however, took the joke sportingly. The source says, “Vidya gracefully replied saying, ‘I don’t know if I should be saying this but getting pregnant has always worked for me. It worked for me in Paa (2009) and then in Kahaani. Maybe this is a cue for you, Sid. But in real life… No! I am not pregnant.”

Well, it definitely looks like the actor was taking it all in her stride.
