Mahima Chaudhary, the pretty looking Bollywood actress who could not acquire the stardom she might have craved for, is married and on the verge of delivering a baby. Her hubby is her bro’s best friend, the well known architect, Bobby Mukherjee.Now when her delivery date is due for the coming week, Mahima tells Delhi Times that “Pregnancy is a beautiful phase. You put on lots of weight. And I must say I look well endowed,” laughs Mahima, adding, “I think all mothers-to-be look most beautiful when they are expecting.”
Mahima’s sister Aakansha has come down from Florida with her old maternity clothes and her little son’s baby outfits. Akansha says “It’s our custom, we don’t allow the newborn to wear anything new for 15 days”. Mahima adds, “Bobby wants a daughter. So do I. But it’s fine if we are blessed with a son.”
About the various rumors about her wedding Mahima laughs and says that “Just because I didn’t invite the world for a reception, doesn’t mean I am not married.” Mahima’s is the second wife of Bobby who is a divorced from his first wife. The duo had officially married last year on March 19, in Las Vegas.
Remembering those days the ‘Pardes’ actress asserts that “It was at a hoteliers’ conference in Vegas”. “I was making an appearance there and marriage wasn’t part of the plan. I had chopped off my long tresses and had a bob cut and was simply enjoying the holiday and attending the conference.” But the charismatic beauty of Vegas changed the whole situation. And Mahima called her sister and a few friends over for the wedding. “At a function on March 19, amongst about 10,000 Indian hoteliers and their families, we got married and nobody had an inkling. I wore a red saree as if I was decked up for the function,” she says. The couple had a registered marriage, and later, on March 23, they got married according to Hindu rites with Mahima dressed up like a Bengali bride. Having been born and brought up in Kolkata, Mahima speaks fluent Bengali but does not know how to cook Bengali food. “I am a vegetarian and he is a pucca Bengali fishitarian,” says Mahima.
Mahima and Bobby will soon shift to their new house in Mumbai.
