Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor welcomed their first child, daughter Raha, on November 6, 2022. In just a matter of days, Alia returned to her pregnancy journey and shared a picture of herself performing the aerial yoga inversion. The actor, in her caption, advised her ‘fellow mamas’ to listen to their bodies post-partum and not go through rigorous training. She added that every body is different and new moms must consult their doctors before undergoing training and workouts sessions. Now, in a recent interview, Alia talked about her post-pregnancy fitness journey.
Alia Bhatt on weight loss rumours post delivery
Alia, in a conversation with Vogue India, said that she had to lose weight for some shoots that required her to look certain at. Alia said, “My job is a visual medium so I do need to present myself in a certain way, sometimes also for continuity.” She said that despite that, she wasn’t being hard on herself to lose weight as she was incredibly proud of what her body had done when she delivered Raha. Alia added that people think she lost weight unnaturally, but that wasn’t the case.
“I know everyone believes that I lost weight unnaturally but the truth is that I can’t even get my wisdom tooth extracted at the moment since I’m breastfeeding and can’t be given anesthesia,” she said. She said that a lot of people are under the impression that those who work in the film industry do unnatural things to their bodies to bounce back in shape post-delivery. “That’s why I felt like it was important to document parts of my fitness journey on Instagram. I didn’t put any pressure on myself. The doctors advised me to only push harder in my workouts post 12 weeks, and I did that,” said Alia.
