Neha Dhupia is known for being her unabashed self. The actress does not have a filter and that is perhaps what makes her extremely special and a candid person to speak to. In an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, she opened up on a number of things including facing body image issues post-pregnancy, not getting work post-pregnancy, her show No Filter Neha and more. Neha said that she felt a bit surprised when a female journalist commented on her postpartum weight. 

About not getting work when she was pregnant, Neha said, "Firstly, I believe that you cannot wait for work to come to you. We all have our platforms today and we all have shops. Secondly, when you become a mum, yes, there is a perception. The last thing I did before pregnancy was Tumhari Sulu, for which I won an award. But despite that, I did not get any offers as far as movies are concerned, post-pregnancy. I did not get any offers after I gave birth either. Now, I am in talks for a web show, so let's see about that."

She added that post-pregnancy, she did face body image issues. "I did not have insecurity when I was pregnant. I started facing body image issue was after I gave birth. I am not saying that people need to lose weight, being perfect is everyone's own version. But, what happens mentally is that everything acts up together. I remember I was trolled very badly where a female journalist wrote something on my weight, and I wrote back. It is not fair to trouble a new mum over her body weight," she shared.
