One of the pitfalls of being a celebrity is the constant scrutiny and the baseless rumours that always seem to crop up about you. With more than 78 million followers on social media, Dilraba Dilmurat is no stranger to this having found herself the subject of pregnancy rumours as people speculate depending on what she wears or how long of a break she’s taken. In a recent interview, the 30-year-old actress candidly talked about pregnancy rumours, saying she feels helpless at times with all the stuff people say about her.
However, the incident did make her think about why people kept circling back to the topic. “This is not an isolated case concerning me alone. A woman, whether single and childless, married with kids or married and childless, these are all personal choices. When people talk about a woman, can they just move away from always talking about whether she’s married, divorced, has a child, or never had a child in her life.” If people can refrain from doing so, it’s definitely a small step in the right direction said the actress.
She added that when she hears about the rumours people made up about her in the beginning, she’d get angry and think why is this happening to her. But as she got used to it, she started to find it funny. Even if she tells her truth every day, people will still believe what they want to believe. At the end of the day, she says acting is just her job. When she leaves work, she says she’s the same as everyone else. “When I’m working, I make sure to work hard, but I wouldn’t wish to live my life under constant scrutiny.”
