There is no end to the amount of criticism that women face surrounding their body size and figures. Now it looks like even reputed actors cannot seem to escape such criticism. In a recent interview with ETimes actress Deepika Singh opened up about trolls on the internet fat-shaming her after her pregnancy. Deepika Singh is famous for her role as Sandhya Bahu in the hit Hindi show Diya Aur Baati Hum.
Deepika revealed that many haters told her that she will no longer get a leading role as she does not fit the ideal body type. However, Deepika said that she later joined a gym to sweat out all the weight she gained during her pregnancy.
Deepika said, “I have been trolled a lot on social media especially for my weight gain. After giving birth to my son Soham I was 73 kgs and I had randomly shared a picture of mine without thinking much and it was my birthday, they started writing nasty stuff about me.”
She shared that these trolls did not even spare her on her birthday and commented things like -- ‘you are such a big actress, you should have waited’, ‘now you won't get any role’, ‘nobody will take her in a lead role’ and ‘look at her how bad she is looking’ -- on her posts.
“I regularly went to the gym. I took screenshots of all those comments and kept them as a wallpaper on my phone. Whenever I felt lazy these nasty comments helped me to hit the gym. Ultimately, I proved them (the trolls) wrong,” she added.
