Dipika on quitting acting

As quoted by Pinkvilla, Dipika said, “I am enjoying this phase of pregnancy and welcoming our first child. The excitement is on another level. I started working at a very young age and continued for about 10 – 15 years at a stretch. As my pregnancy journey began, I told Shoaib that I don’t want to work and want to quit acting. I want to live a life as a housewife and mother”.

Shoaib on people who called Dipika's pregnancy fake

Recently, Shoaib spoke about people who thought that Dipika's pregnancy wasn't true. Speaking with ETimes, Shoaib had said, "There are some people who feel Dipika is faking her pregnancy. They write stuff like 'kitne pillows badlogi, Accha har month Takiye ka size change kar rahe ho, Waah kya shaane ho (How many pillows will you change? You are such cunning people, you keep changing the pillow size each month).' We can’t do anything about them because their mindset is such. We don’t bother anymore. We are very happy as a family."

In March this year, Dipika had also called out those who called her pregnancy “fake”. "How much negativity will you spread? Be it pregnancy, or celebrations or profession, or a relationship between husband and wife, you have to spread negativity. And, then you go ahead and blame us for being fake? We are nautanki baaz?" she asked in a video on her YouTube channel.
