In order to safeguard their privacy, the couple have put some strict restrictions in the hospital with regards to who can visit them. They have not allowed even close relatives to visit them at the hospital and have decided to not accept any flowers or other gifts in the hospital.
The security is so tight that even visitors in nearby rooms and other hospital staff are not allowed to even get a sneak peek into Anushka’s room.
Meanwhile, the hospital has strictly instructed the staff who have access to Anushka’s room to not click photos. The hospital might also arrange for a back door exit for the couple to leave without getting into the eye of the paparazzi who have stationed themselves outside the hospital.
Some paparazzi are waiting outside the hospital to capture the first glimpse of the newborn baby girl. Such is the demand of the baby’s picture that the paparazzi may not hesitate to follow the couple’s car back to their home once the actress gets discharged.
