For the ones who don’t know much about the ceremony, let us tell you. Gangaur is one of the most important and colourful festivals celebrated in the Rajasthan region of India. This festival is eminent throughout the area with great passion and devoutness by womenfolk who worship Gauri (wife of Lord Shiva). This festival comes during March-April and is rejoiced because of spring, harvest and marital fidelity. Both married and unmarried women celebrate this festival. Married ones do it for good health, well-being and long life of their husbands, while unmarried ones do it for a good husband.
Coming back to Deepika, right from enjoying her pregnancy phase to now life with Soham, she is experiencing everything to the core. She even shared some pregnancy tips with other and was once quoted as saying, "Pregnancy comes with lots of responsibilities. Bringing a child into the world is the most beautiful thing that a woman experiences in her life. Before conceiving, maintain a healthy lifestyle as this would avoid complications in your pregnancy. These days women are more sceptical and scared to get pregnant but I would just like to say that it is a beautiful phase and enjoy every moment of it."
During her pregnancy, Deepika gained a few kilos, but now she is working on being back to shape. She spoke about her fitness routine to a leading daily and said, “In the last few months, I have been working out. I started with yoga but that didn’t work for me so I went back to Odissi dance which I love. It has been fun dancing again. It’s very satisfying. I am conscious about my health and want to reduce my weight too.” She also revealed, “I don’t believe in dieting and would rather work out. I didn’t restrict myself from any food due to pregnancy and now feeding my son. I want to be fit and not slim, per se. I feel an actor doesn’t have to be slim or have a certain figure, instead you should be good at your job, which is acting. That is more important.”
Well, Deepika you look gorgeous in you Gangaur festival attire. All your fans are eagerly waiting to see you back on small screen.
