PIX: When actresses got pregnant on screen
For Bollywood, it's pregnant ladies all around.
While some, like Shilpa Shetty, are gearing up to welcome babies in real life, others are taking up roles that require them to sport baby bumps in films.
Kareena Kapoor, who plays the lead in Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine, has joined the bandwagon.
The director had posted a pic of Kareena with the bump but the picture later disappeared from his Twitter account.
Here's looking at other Bollywood belles, who've played expectant mothers in the past.
