"I am not a baby-making machine"

When asked about rumours of her impending pregnancy (read Is Vidya Balan pregnant?) from last year when she was actually battling a health problem she said, "It was annoying. I could be going to a clinic for an acne too! Why is it that every time a woman, post marriage, visits a doctor, there are whispers of her pregnancy?" she questioned.

The Kahaani 2 actor who is always vocal about her thoughts and her stand on social issues added that pregnancy was a matter that was best left to her and her husband Siddharth Roy Kapur.

"I don't think it's anyone's business except mine and my husband's (producer Siddharth Roy Kapur). It was a serious invasion on our privacy, but our country is such. Neighbours and relatives [constantly] ask us (unnecessary questions)," said the actor who married Kapur in a low-key wedding on December 14 in 2012.

What is this baby obsession?

The actor also revealed that the day she got married, one of her uncles also made a similar statement about an impending pregnancy.

The 38-year-old actor shared, "The day I got married, one of my uncles told me at the wedding venue, 'Next time I see you [her and Siddharth], I should be looking at three people, not two'. This was even before our wedding pictures could be clicked. I politely laughed because we hadn't even decided on our honeymoon destination then."

"What is this baby obsession? I am not a baby-making machine. Anyway, the world population is on a rise. If some people don't have children, it's fine," she stated. It looks like the powerful actress is not ready to become a mum yet. However, if she does decide she will have to be extra cautious since pregnancy post 35 can come with its fair share of challenges.
