Alia Bhatt Reveals She Shot For Her Hollywood Debut Movie Heart Of Stone While Being Pregnant; Says, ‘I Had Major Exhaustion And Nausea’
Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt achieved new heights in 2022, from her movies Darlings, Gangubai Kathiawadi and Brahmastra becoming blockbuster hits, shooting for her first Hollywood movie Heart Of Stone to getting married to Ranbir Kapoor and welcoming her baby daughter Raha. She is grateful for all the experiences she has had the past year. During a recent interaction, she opened up about why she didn’t tell anyone about her pregnancy.

While talking to Bombay Times, Alia recalled that telling many others about the pregnancy during the first 12 weeks is not advisable. However, to cope with the exhaustion and nausea she always listened to what her body felt. She went on to explain that she didn’t let pregnancy limit her physically she had to prioritize her health and her baby before her work commitments.

The 29-year-old actress said, “I don’t believe in limiting myself unless there’s some physical limitation. I was pregnant, so yes, there was scope for many limitations, as pregnancy is unpredictable. I decided to take each day as it comes and listen to my body. Of course, work is very important, but at that point, my baby and my health were my priority. From the very beginning, I told myself that only if I was comfortable, will I push myself. Touchwood, my pregnancy didn’t hold me back physically. Yes, the first few weeks were slightly difficult as I had major exhaustion and nausea, but at that time, I didn’t talk about it because you are not supposed to say anything for the first 12 weeks, right? That’s what everybody says, so I had to keep that information to myself, but I was listening to my body.”

Alia went on to recall how excited she was to shoot her Hollywood debut movie Heart Of Stone, starring Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan, while being pregnant, a story that she will tell for years to come. Expressing how she respects her body even more now, she said, “Heart of Stone is my first Hollywood movie, which I signed in January 2022. I tried hard to work out that schedule, so I didn’t want to back off. I talked to the team and they assured me that they will take good care of me and it was great. I managed to shoot my first action film while I was pregnant! That is a story I will tell for years because it also makes you realise how much your body is capable of if you just put your mind to it.”

In the same interview, the Student Of The Year actress also opened up about getting married and having a baby at the peak of her career. She said, “I have always been someone who listens to my heart… Whether it’s films or anything else, I always let my heart decide. Yes, at the peak of my career, I decided to get married and have a baby. But who says that marriage or motherhood will change anything to do with my work? Even if it does, so be it. I don’t care. I knew that in life, I would never regret the decision to have a baby. It’s a natural instinct. It’s the best decision that I have ever made.” ALSO READ: Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt's PROPOSAL Photo Goes Viral!
