Bubbly actress Genelia D'Souza has been snapped by shutterbugs, flaunting what appears to be a baby bump.

D'Souza, who has been married to fellow Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh for two years, has now sparked off pregnancy rumours.

The actress attended the screening of Deshmukh's Marathi film "Yellow" in Mumbai's PVR Juhu recently. Dressed casually in a black tee and capri, actress seemed to have a tiny baby bump, leading to the obvious pregnancy speculations.

But just as reports of D'Souza expecting started circulating, the actress' spokesperson played down the news.

Pregnancy rumours around married actresses of the industry has been endless of late. Vidya Balan had come under the scanner only some time ago as rumours hinted at the actress' leap into motherhood.

The talented actress' pregnancy speculations rose to prominence, when she opted out of a few important projects, one of which was Sujoy Ghosh's thriller to which she had previously committed to.

The debate on the inclusion of the 'no-pregnancy clause' in married actresses' contract also resurfaced after Balan's exit from the Ghosh project. Previously, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had made a very late exit from Madhur Bhandarkar's "Heroine" after becoming pregnant.

Even Kareena Kapoor, who married Saif Ali Khan back in 2012, was rumoured to be pregnant at several points in the last couple of years. But the actress has vehemently denied those reports, and even went to the extent of stating that family expansion was the last thing on her mind at the moment.
