Deepika Singh opens up about pressure of losing post pregnancy weight; says weight loss is not my motto!


Post her maternity break, Deepika Singh is all set to return to television with the supernatural thriller, Kavach 2. The actress, who has lost oodles of weight after her pregnancy, shared her experiences of her weight-loss journey and how she is concerned about her health above flaunting a certain figure. 

At the launch of the show, when Deepika was questioned about the pressure of losing weight post-pregnancy, she said, “That depends from person to person. I wanted to look good. You get most of the good dresses and dresses that are easy to choose from when you are not on the heavier side. I didn’t want to sacrifice on certain clothes that I would have otherwise had to. My fans loved me before my transformation and did so even after it. In 2012-13, I had actually put on weight in the show. Your performance and the character you play onscreen also makes a lot of difference. I am focused on my health and I also do Odissi dancing, which helps lose weight naturally.”

The actress further added, “Weight loss is not my motto but good health is; it’s difficult to run on the sets for shots if you are on the heavier side, especially if you are shooting for 12-14 hours. I wasn’t very conscious about my looks earlier but now I am. Celebrities now are more on social networking and I want my photos to look good. But I also don’t think that the audience will accept you only if you look thin. Otherwise, every model will be a good actor.

Deepika who is married to director Rohit Raj Goyal gave birth to a baby boy, Sohum on May 20, 2017. Since then she has been enjoying the blessing of motherhood.
