During the episode, the actress talked about being the subject of pregnancy rumors in tabloids in India. "I have been proclaimed pregnant already a couple of times. I'm like, 'Okay, is that a hint?'" she said. "People would be watching every little bulge, and I'm like, "Oh my God. If you're not in shape, you're pregnant."
