Bipasha Basu is pregnant with her husband Karan Singh Grover and Basu has been updating her fans with photos and videos of her baby bump since her pregnancy announcement. She also faced trolls for sharing the photos, to which she reverted back with body positivity messages and looks like she's back with another photo with her bump.
Pregnant women till previous generations were seen hiding their baby bumps with oversized clothes or with a dupatta. But slowly actors normalising the pregnant body in the media and flaunting it in front of the camera has altered the imagery. Kareena Kapoor walked a ramp with her pregnant belly which broke several stereotypes of an expecting mother in the entertainment fraternity. Previously actors left their careers and stayed away from the limelight due to stigma and fear of ruining the memory of their perfect bodies for their fans. Thankfully now the actors can be who they are on social media and share details of their life without worrying about destroying their image.

Bipasha Basu announced her pregnancy by sharing photos of her baby bump along with her husband as he kisses it. The adorable photos of the duo were celebrated and they were congratulated for the new phase in their life. Unfortunately, the trolls found it inappropriate as she was revealing too much skin. To this, Basu said, "At this beautiful stage of life when I’m transforming into a mother and my body had changed, I want to celebrate it. I still want to live. I still want to flaunt it. Because this is not going to be there forever. I’d rather focus on the positivity around me and I get a lot of love from fans, media, people from the business and everyone else. I feel overwhelmed with the love and wishes that have come my way." Read more here.

A new mother who is also a fan of the actor has commented saying that Bipasha Basu has helped her overcome insecurities about her own body, she said, "I delivered a baby couple of months ago, the self image and confidence has gone down to drain. I have stretch marks all over the body and I feel so embarrassed of myself that I don't know what to do. I can't start working out due to postpartum complications. It has been a rough ride but to see you taking it all so gracefully and positively, is really motivating. Thank you for being such an inspiration".
