Rumours: Lara Dutta’s Pregnant


Star gossip is always big business. As the world watches the collapse of World News, it’s shockingly apparent how far some are willing to go for a good headline.

The jet set of Bollwood aren’t immune to this trend. Last month Shilpa Shetty was targeted by gossip mongers spreading rumors of an alleged pregnancy, and now, it seems, it’s Lara Dutta’s turn.

According to the latest buzz, the actress turned film producer is pregnant.  So far, neither Lara nor her husband, Mahesh have commented on the rumours—through the social media channels or otherwise. It should be noted that Shilpa Shetty put the notions of her pregnancy to rest on Twitter.

Sources close to the couple say, “Lara and Mahesh always take things as they come. Though they have been busy with their careers, they feel it’s the right time to have a kid. Besides, Lara just finished shooting Don 2 and is working on her next production now.  She may or may not act in it, depending on what happens.”

Many couples avoid talking about pregnancies in the early stages. As a close friend of Lara and Mahesh noted, “it’s considered inauspicious to speak about the pregnancy until after the first trimester. Right now they are really hush-hush about the entire thing. They do not want too much attention.”

“Even if the pregnancy is confirmed, it’s likely the world will have to wait for confirmation. Having a baby is a big deal, and every parent is going to do what they feel is ultimately best for their child.
