Bipasha Basu addresses trolls
Bipasha Basu, who conceived Devi via IVF treatment, opened up about her postpartum weight gain, and the body shaming and negativity that’s coming her way. She told the portal, “I would like to tell them to please keep trolling. It’s completely fine because I’m not bothered." Karan also shared his take on the trolls and said that 'as long as they’re watching, it is okay'.
On being a mother
Bipasha said, “Devi’s my number one when it comes to everything and anything. Whether my eyes are open or shut, it’s always her. Every time I step out, I just want to run back home and be with her.

Responding to her, Karan joked that he is ‘a slave, who used to have one master’. He added that now he has ‘two masters and I’m still a slave’. Karan also said that nothing much has changed for him.
