Being a woman is tough in this world and being a celebrity and a woman is also tough, if not tougher. Yesterday, Bipasha Basu quashed rumours of her pregnancy on twitter. Bipasha and Karan Singh Grover married last year in a low-key ceremony. For the homosapiens around the world , it is only ‘natural’ to think that once a woman is married, she would have a child, and she cannot decide otherwise. Celebrities in India and abroad, have time and again opted to not have kids and it is their personal matter but that does not deter media from imagining about the ‘good news’.

Responding to speculation about possible pregnancy, Bipasha responded on twitter with:
