Bipasha Basu shocked fans when she opened up about her daughter Devi’s medical complications that came to light after her birth. The actress, who welcomed her first child with husband-actor Karan Singh Grover in November 2022, revealed that the little one was born with a ventricular septal defect and underwent an open-heart surgery. In an Instagram Live session with Neha Dhupia on Saturday, Basu said three days after she gave birth, the doctors told her that the child was born with two holes in her heart. “We didn’t even understand what a VSD is,” she said and added, “We were told that every month, we have to do a scan to know if it’s healing on its own. But with the kind of large hole that she had, we were told that it was doubtful, you will have to go through surgery. And the surgery is best done, when the child is three months old,” she added.
Terming the ordeal “an isolating phase of my life”, the actor said she feels lighter after talking about it publicly.
