New Delhi: Comedian and Dance Deewane host Bharti Singh gets emotional after watching a performance on the dance reality show. In the performance, a contestant showed the real-life story of a young mother who lost her 14-day old baby due to covid-19. As the performance finished, Bharti took to the stage with her husband and co-host Haarsh Limbachiyaa. Bharti started crying and said covid-19 pandemic was the reason she is not ready to start her family yet.
In a clip from the show, Bharti says "We are planning a baby but after hearing about such cases, we don’t feel like starting a family. We are deliberately not talking about having a baby because I don’t want to cry like this,". Judges Nora Fatehi and Tushar Kalia also get emotional. Talking about her family plan, Bharti in a media interview said “Well, I want to become a mother. In fact, Haarsh and I had planned to go family way in 2020. Socha toh tha ki 2020 mein 20-20 khel loon (I thought let me play 20-20 in 2020)."
She further added “However, due to the coronavirus outbreak, I don’t wish to take any chance. I can’t plan a baby in such tension. I want my baby to come in a healthy environment. Right now, it is risky to even visit a hospital and once you get pregnant, you have to visit a doctor for regular check-ups. Might as well wait for another year than putting a small baby’s life at risk,”
