The makers were quite supportive of my pregnancy: Vidisha

Vidisha Srivastava aka Anita Bhabhi from Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain! was recently in Lucknow. The actress, who hails from Varanasi, was in the city with her three-month-old daughter. In fact, the actress had resumed work one month after her delivery. "I have been carrying my daughter with me not only when I travel to different cities but also on the sets.
It is a package deal now. Main jahan woh wahan types. (laughs). But on a serious note, even though there was a good enough bank of episodes with the makers for my absence, I decided to join soon after my delivery as I have been a workaholic all my life," she shares.
'My life has changed drastically post motherhood'
However, the Kashibai Bajirao Ballal actress says she hasn't compromised even a bit on her motherhood responsibilities. "My life has changed drastically post motherhood. From the moment she came into my arms, things changed. Also, I was able to join back so soon because I delivered a normal baby. My mother has been a big support for me all this while as my husband is posted in Ranchi. I didn't want to hand over my kid to a nanny because she has a Nani. Plus, to date, I haven't given her formula feed and she is exclusively on mother's milk. I go and feed her in between scenes. And I intend to do that till she turns six months," says Vidisha.
But motherhood wasn't planned for Vidisha. "I had never planned this baby as according to my contract, I wasn't supposed to get pregnant and within 10 months of shooting Bhabhiji I gave this shocking news to them about conceiving. However, the makers were really supportive and congratulated me and made sure my pregnancy was smooth."

"I love my hometown Banaras. Taking regular dips in Ganga, visiting Kashi Vishwanath temple regularly, wahan ki tamatar chaat, there is so much about my city to fall in love with."
