The leading reason for weight loss in India is not due to people striving for a healthier lifestyle but them trying to escape the constant bullying. This statement alone states a lot in regards to the culture humankind had developed overtimes.
Since our birth, children are conditioned in a way to think that being thin and fair is the ultimate point of being beautiful. But in reality, we need to understand that not always is that true as it never is true. Every shade of skin colour is pretty and every type of body is healthy and fit in their way and form.
Owing to the availability of the Internet, trolls are everywhere and their main motive is to bring other people down and sector self-esteem. It has become extremely easy for them to hide behind a veil of anonymity while sharing their twisted degradation with anyone.
Parineeti Chopra has faced such issues multiple times and hasn’t paid much attention until recently she came out to her followers with a picture. The actress posted a chubby picture of herself with the caption, “All my life, I have struggled with how I look, how I feel, and how people looked at me. I was constantly made fun of, but the person I was, I generously laughed with them. Today many people ask me what triggered the weight loss, did I give in to the “Bollywood pressure”? To that I say – Thank God I became an actor and had that pressure! I can achieve what I couldn’t achieve otherwise.”
But it is not only the trollers who pull people down, at times it can be your contemporaries as well. Sonam Kapoor, the talented fashionista also passed a comment in regards to Parineeti. On being asked what fashion advice would she give to her by Karan, Sonam casually replied, “Don’t wear those tight clothes.”
