In her book, Open Book, actress Kubbra Sait discusses a variety of personal topics. The actor’s childhood in Bengaluru, her battles with social anxiety and body shaming, and how she made it in the entertainment business are all covered in the book.

The Sacred Games star discussed how she had an abortion following a one-night affair in one of the book’s chapters titled “I Wasn’t Ready to Be a Mother.”

She discussed her trip to the Andaman Islands when she was 30 years old in her book. She claimed that she went out for a couple of beers with her buddies after a session of scuba diving and had a sexual encounter with one of them. But a few days later, when she didn’t get her period, she took a pregnancy test and got a positive result. “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,” she revealed.

Kubbra said in an interview with Times Now that she had ‘no regrets’ about not being ready to accept motherhood at that point in her life. “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 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,” she said. She added that due to this choice she felt like a terrible human being. However, that feeling came from how society felt about it.

Kubbra also shared the link to this book in her Instagram post, captioning it, ‘Part memoir, part inspirational treatise, #OpenBook by Kubbra Sait lays bare the struggles, achievements, joys and failures, and the many reinventions of a shy and anxious Bangalore girl who despite the struggles, dreamt of making it in an industry that is known to favour its own.’

In the past, Kubbra Sait has appeared in films like ‘Sultan’, ‘Ready’ and ‘City of Life’.
