The actor said new mothers “put a lot of pressure on themselves” to look a certain way again. Ali Bhatt added that because films are “a visual medium,” she must “look attractive,” and therefore “had to lose weight” after Raha’s birth on November 6, 2022. In a new interview, Alia admitted to love food, and spoke about the pressures women face ‘even before pregnancy’ thanks to social media ‘in the present day’
“I really want to talk about this. A lot of women struggle with their new look after pregnancy. They tend to put a lot of pressure on themselves to look a certain way again. Everyone wants to lose weight and there can be i relate to i love food i love food and i had to lose weight because movies are a visual medium and you need to look healthy you need to look attractive in the present day with every picture being posted on social media appears, even before pregnancy, girls are constantly worried about how they look.Women should take a moment to appreciate their bodies,” Alia told ETimes.
Alia went on to talk about new moms keeping their bodies “safe,” adding that she now exercises to be healthy, “not to get thin or make her waist look smaller.” She said, “It’s not just about getting back in shape, it’s about building your immunity, and then everything will work itself out.” Now when I exercise, I don’t do it to get thin or to make my waist look smaller. I do it to be healthy. The idea is to be fit and not starve yourself by following an unhealthy diet. I’ve decided never to be hard on myself, even if there’s an extra bloat or plumpness here and there. I’m going to celebrate. I will not torture myself…”
In the same interview, the actor further shared wellness tips for new mothers, asking them to do their best to stay healthy by eating vegetables, including protein in their diet, doing yoga and going for walks.
