Bollywood celebrities who have been body shamed tell their story and have some advice to share with you!
“And he said that everything was wrong about me. He said my nose was not proportionate, the shape of my body was not proportionate.There is such a false perception about what women should look like and what our bodies should look like. Especially when you are in the (film) business, you put on a couple of pounds and people are like... body shaming you. It happens. Christmas happens to all of us. I am an Indian. I have Holi, I have Diwali, I have hundred holidays and my body fluctuates and you know what... I am fine with it."
Sonam Kapoor who is always advocating women empowerment and positive body image also has been through this path! She said: "I constantly worried that, if asked to dance in a backless choli, rolls of back fat would give me away as an imposter to the industry. Nobody lines up to buy tickets to see cellulite. The ball is in the media's court to celebrate fit bodies rather than thin ones, and to know the difference. I know now that there's nothing wrong with stretch marks, cellulite, or scars. They're markers of our growth. There's beauty in their realness."
