Newlyweds Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapur were the highlights at a recently held awards show. It was interesting to see Vidya Balan in the relaxed company of her bridegroom.

While she looked resplendent in a bright golden kanjeevaram sari, Siddharth chose a simple black suit. On being asked which film she wanted to win at the awards, Vidya quipped, "Kahaani should win for me and Barfi should win for UTV!"

 All the actors at the awards function kept wondering about Vidya's weight and the radiant glow on her face. As she went up to collect her award, anchors Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh joked about her being pregnant. Said Riteish with a wink, "By the way, it's very unfortunate that before Siddharth, Sujoy (Ghosh) had got Vidya pregnant!" The entire fraternity gathered at the do went still for a few seconds before bursting into peals of laughter when they realised that Reitesh was talking about Sujoy's heavily pregnant lead protagonist 'Vidya Bagchi' in Kahaani.

To this, Vidya said, "I don't know if I should be saying this, but getting pregnant has always worked for me. It worked for  me in Paa and  now in Kahaani. Maybe this is a cue for you Sid (looking at her husband). But in real life…No! I am not pregnant."

The moment she said this, actor Shah Rukh Khan, who was presenting the award to her said in jest, "It's strange Vidya that you should be saying this just after hugging me."  Vidya Balan could only blush red at this comment.
