Body shaming is just not restricted only to commoners. In fact celebrities bear a huge brunt of it all the time. Read here on celebs who have beaten down body shaming to live a life of their own!!!
“The most beautiful girl in the world” Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was body shamed post childbirth. She was criticised endlessly for not making an effort to go back to her pre-pregnancy weight. And yes she took her own time. Neither was she too bothered about body shaming. Here’s what she has to say “It isn’t surprising because in this industry it comes as standard when an actress becomes a mother the focus isn’t on her health, it’s how fast she lost her weight, and I don’t worry about this. To me, the well-being and the health of my family are more important than focusing on going back to my pre-pregnancy body in miracle time.”
Her national award-winning act in “The Dirty Picture” notwithstanding, Vidya was the target of body shaming all the time. She took it well in her stride and created a space of her own where she was confident of her body completely. She says” “A fat girl always feels like a boy will not like her because of her weight. But there is only so much a boyfriend, a husband and your family can do. But I know that love is non-negotiable and at the end of the day, you have to come to terms with who you are.”
The paparazzi have always kept a close tab on Sonakshi Sinha’s weight! She gave a kickass reply to her critics on Twitter as “‘To all those who keep commenting on my weight, whether it’s a full picture, or a close up where you can’t see jack, take a good look at this picture…Now get this: 1) This ain’t ever gonna be me. 2) Get over it. 3) I wish you could see which finger I hold up for shallow and idiotic people like yourself.”
A Sunday Times of India publication carried a video of Deepika captioning as ” “ÖMG! Deepika Padukone’s cleavage show!” Her epic response ” “YES! I am a Woman. I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??” She further tweeted, “Don’t talk about Woman’s Empowerment when YOU don’t know how to RESPECT Women!” The twitteri came in full support of her with #IStandWithDeepikaPadukone trending all day.

This no-nonsense Bollywood actor when on to shock people with her confessions. Here’s what she said ” “I was told I should gain weight, then lose weight, fix my nose and inflate my lips, get a boob job, lose the puppy fat, grow my hair out, or cut it, get highlights, or fake eyelash extensions, squat for a bigger booty, get fake gel nails, run in heels, wear Spanx, pout will be talking, focus on dilating the pupils, and listen attentively.”
Respect your body and be fit. We salute these Divas who fought back body shaming to win more accolade for themselves.
