Actress Genelia D'Souza has sparked pregnancy rumours yet again after failing to accompany husband Riteish Deshmukh to Tampa Bay, Florida for IIFA Awards 2014.

Big names of the industry have flown down to attend the event and many of them along with Deshmukh were recently spotted at the Mumbai International Airport. However, the actor's wife's absence was starkly noticed.

It should be noted that the happily wedded couple are mostly seen in each other's company and make appearances together in various events.

But Deshmukh going solo has now set tongues wagging about D'Souza's pregnancy. The actress further fuelled rumours when she was seen hiding her belly while posing for pictures at a fashion event held last month.

The pregnancy news first surfaced during the screening of Deshmukh's Marathi film "Yellow", where the actress was seen showing a tiny baby bump. But her spokesperson had declined the reports at that point.

Not just D'Souza, actress Vidya Balan too has been under the scanner and has widely been reported to be pregnant. Reports grew strong after Balan opted out of Sujoy Ghosh's film and even her association with Mahesh Bhatt produced "Hamari Adhuri Kahani" now stands doubtful.

The "Kahaani" actress, however, has vehemently denied the pregnancy reports.
