Actor Alia Bhatt left everyone surprised when she announced her pregnancy with actor husband Ranbir Kapoor. She dropped a beautiful picture and mentioned that their Baby is coming soon. Right two months after her wedding to Ranbir, Alia announced the happy news and didn’t hide the pregnancy. Having said that, the pregnancy didn’t stop her as the Gangubai Kathiawadi actor continued to finish her work commitments with utmost dedication.

Seeing Alia Bhatt working through her pregnancy phase, it amazes us to see how the women of this generation are normalising working during pregnancy and Alia is one of them. Society often projects a pregnant woman as an individual with a paused life. While many women do deal with health issues and unfortunately aren’t able to work enough, many are working at shattering the patriarchal glass ceiling enveloping our society. Yes, there was Kareena Kapoor Khan who worked till the last week of pregnancy and set out a new rule book for many out there. More than anything, she made a working pregnant mother-to-be image normal. Now, Alia Bhatt who has always shared her admiration for Bebo has also channelised a similar route.

Recently, a publication tried to dumb her down by the same societal norms but Alia gave a fitting answer to the same. “I’m not a parcel”, she had written while muting such naysayers. Alia took to her Instagram stories and slammed the publication with a tinge of sass as she wrote, “Meanwhile, we still live in some people’s heads we still live in some patriarchal world… FYI. Nothing has gotten delayed! No one needs to pick anyone up, I am a woman, not a parcel! I do not need to rest at all but good to know you’ll have a doctor’s certification as well. This is 2022, Can we please get out of this archaic way of thinking! Now if you would excuse me… my shot is ready.

But it’s not her words, but her actions that are doing all the talking. Alia who has been busy shooting for two projects simultaneously – Karan Johar‘s directorial venture Rocky Aur Rani ki Prem Kahani and her big Hollywood debut – Heart of Stone alongside our Wonder Woman Gal Gadot, has been finishing her work commitments abroad first and will soon come back to India and start work on her upcoming films.

Moreover, her first production venture Darlings is also gearing up for a release in the next three weeks and Alia will also be seen promoting the same. It’s quite amazing to see how Alia is balancing out her professional and personal life with utmost ease. It only inspires every woman of this generation that we don’t need to pause our life to start a new journey. Just like Kareena Kapoor, Alia too will go out and about to finish off her work without letting her pregnancy affect her. Women really need to take cues from the Gangubai on how to manage work while enjoying the pregnancy phase.

It won’t be wrong to call the lovely Alia Bhatt our Wonder Woman, too!

We can’t wait to see Alia in Brahmastra where she is paired opposite her husband Ranbir Kapoor for the first time. The film is slated to release on September 9. Helmed by Ayan Mukerji, Brahmastra also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy. Apart from that, she has recently dropped an intriguing teaser of Darlings which stars Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathews. Shah Rukh Khan’s production film will be streaming on Netflix from August 5.
