after, after announces her pregnancyZia responded to an Instagram user who questioned the timing of her marriage in relation to her pregnancy, and asked her why she did not reveal her pregnancy before she tied the knot with Vibhav. She replied, “Interesting question. First, we didn’t get married because we were having a baby together. We were actually getting married because we wanted to spend our lives together. We found out we were going to have a baby while we were planning our wedding. So this marriage is not the result of pregnancy. We didn’t announce the pregnancy until we knew it was safe.” (Medical reasons). This is the happiest news of my life. I have waited for many years for this to happen. It is impossible for me to hide it for any non-medical reason.”

Zia will next appear in Bhid, directed by Anuphav Sinha. Previously she worked with the director on Cash, Dus, and Tappad.
