Karan and Nisha maybe following traditions

As per Indian traditions, mums-to-be are usually advised to hide their pregnancy, at least till the first trimester is over. It is believed that a new mum must protect herself and her baby from any buri nazar and therefore, they are asked to hide this good news for sometime.
