Sacred Games Actress Kubbra Sait Opens Up About Getting An Abortion After A One-Night Stand


Bengaluru-born Kubbra Sait made her debut with Salman Khan's 'Ready' in a small supporting role.

New Delhi: Kubbra Sait is making her debut as a writer with her book titled 'Open Book'. In the first chapter of the book, 'The Sacred Games' actress revealed something that gave readers a reason to talk about the celebrity. In one chapter of her book titled 'I Wasn't Ready to Be a Mother' Kubbra revealed that she got an abortion after a one-night stand in Andamans where she was on a holiday to celebrate her 30th birthday.

In the said chapter, Kubbra also spoke about having no regrets after the decision she made. “Of course I felt like a terrible human being. A horrible human being because of that choice I had made. But my feeling bad did not come from how I felt but rather how other people would perceive it. My choice was about me. Sometimes helping yourself can be hard. But it is ok. You have to do it."

Kubbra also mentioned in detail how the situation came about. In 2013, she was in Andamans to celebrate her 30th birthday. After a scuba diving session, she went for drinks with a friend where she later got physically intimate with him. A few days later, she did a pregnancy test which came out to be positive.

"A week later, I decided to terminate the pregnancy. I wasn’t ready for it. It just wasn’t the way I had imagined my life or my journey. I think I was not ready for it. I was not ready because I was not ready for it as a human being. I don’t think I am still ready. I don’t understand this pressure around women to get married at 23 and have children by the time they are 30. It is like a set invisible rulebook. I knew I was not ready for it."

Bengaluru-born Kubbra Sait made her debut with Salman Khan's 'Ready' in a small supporting role. She then went on to feature in films like 'Jawaani Jaaneman', 'Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare', 'Sultan' but rose to fame with her role in Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane's directorial 'The Sacred Games'
