Neha Dhupia says – “I have never shied away from the fact that I felt like I was going through…sometimes, it was a new feeling; sometimes, it felt like I was going through something; sometimes, I felt like I was going through a lot. All of that put together…later on, I understood that it is all postpartum. whether it is feeling extremely emotional or extremely low.”
Neha Dhupia further adds – “For me, the biggest thing is, as soon as you give birth, you feel that void because your body is different, you question whether you are going to go back to being… Especially, people like us, who are so used to being in front of the camera.”
She continues – “As much as we own our bodies and own the life that we are living, apne andar se ek ehsaas hota hai ki (there is a feeling within that) will I go back to what I was or will I go back to being at least what I want to be? There is a beautiful saying, which is that everyone is there to hug the baby but who is there to hug the mom.”
Six months after marrying actor Angad Bedi, Neha Dhupia gave birth to their daughter, Mehr. On the little one’s second birthday, she shared a heartfelt Instagram post, wishing for her to ‘sing even if you don’t know the lyrics, dance like no one is watching, forever be eager to learn’.
