Bharti Singh calls her “India’s first pregnant anchor” jokes, “Colors is making two people work & paying for one”

Bharti Singh is thrilled to be able to work while pregnant, dubbing herself “India’s first pregnant anchor.” She and her husband, Haarsh Limbachiyaa, will host the upcoming reality programme Hunarbaaz Desh Ki Shaan. The comedian quipped that the station is forcing three individuals to work while only paying two of them.

Colors has released a promo that shows what transpired behind the scenes as Bharti prepared for her first day of shooting following her pregnancy announcement. Instead of applauding her on working while pregnant, it shows Bharti getting her make-up done and complaining about how her family members worried her. She tells about how her family has cautioned her about stumbling, slipping, or getting hit by someone by mistake. She vows to show her mother, as well as all other moms, that working while pregnant is perfectly acceptable.

Her husband, Haarsh Limbachiyaa, shares her concern about working while pregnant, but tells himself that everything would be OK once the first day of shooting is through.

Her hair is brushed back and she is dressed in a crimson jacket, she caresses her belly and says in humour, “Mumma kaam karenge, paisa kamayenge (Mumma, we will work and earn money).” While walking towards the set, she jokes, “Colors is very clever, they are making three people work but paying only for two.”

Colors shared the video on Twitter with an encouraging caption, which read: “Hunarbaaz ke manch par aa rahe hai desh ke pehle pregnant anchors. Apni jeetod mehnat se Bharti badal rahi hai poore desh ki soch ko. Kijiye salaam iss naari ke jazbe ko aur dekhiye #Hunarbaaz Desh Ki Shaan 22nd January se, har Sat-Sun, raat 9 baje sirf #Colors par.”
