Bipasha Basu’s daughter had two holes in her heart, three-month-old Devi was fighting for life


Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover welcomed their first child on November 12, 2022. The couple named her Devi Basu Singh Grover, and also shared a post to announce her name. However, when Devi was born, she was suffering from ventricular septal defect (VSD). During a recent interaction with actress Neha Dhupia on Instagram Live, Bipasha got emotional when she revealed that her daughter had two holes in her heart and had undergone surgery when she was around three months old.

Talking about her journey, Bipasha Basu said, ‘Our journey has been very different from that of any normal parent, it is more difficult than the smile that is on my face right now. I would not want this to happen to any mother. For a new mom, when you find out is the hardest. I came to know on the third day after my baby was born that our daughter had two holes in her heart. I thought that I would not share this, but I am sharing this because I feel that there are many mothers who helped me in this, and it was very difficult to find those mothers.

He further said, ‘We did not even understand what VSD is. This is the ventricular septal. We went through a crazy phase. We didn’t discuss this with our family, we were both a little scared. Karan and I were numb. The first five months were very difficult for us. But Devi has been brilliant since day one. We were told that every month we need to have a scan to know whether it is getting better on its own or not. But the kind of big hole it was, we were told it’s dangerous, you have to have surgery. And it is best to do the surgery when the baby is three months old.

Karan was not ready

Bipasha burst into tears and said, ‘You feel so sad, so burdened, because how can you put a child through open heart surgery? We think with our thoughts that it will automatically start getting better. In the first month, it did not happen, in the second month it did not happen. And I remember the third month, when we went for scans, met surgeons, went to hospitals, talked to doctors and I was ready, Karan was not. I knew she would be fine and I knew she would be fine. And she’s fine now. But the difficulty was how to get my child operated at the right place and at the right time.
