Shooting a film is a difficult process as it as and when actresses have to play their roles while expecting a baby, that just adds a whole new level of challenges. We are absolutely blown away by these strong women. In some cases, scriptwriters, makeup artists, costume designers, and even cameramen have had to use different tricks in order to not show that an actress is about to become a mom. But in some cases, their pregnancies are exactly what they need in the story.
