Sonakshi Sinha recalls her experience of being fat-shamed, says 'People still troll me for my weight after losing so many kilos'

Sonakshi Sinha made her successful debut in Bollywood opposite Salman Khan in Dabangg. Even though she was a star kid, her struggle of losing weight in order to become an actress is remarkable. Recently during an interview, Sonakshi recalls the time when she was bullied and fat-shamed in her school. She said, "You know, I was always an overweight child. I used to be 95 kilos in school. People bullied me, and the boys called me names.”

 
However, the Mission Mangal actress did not let all the bullying because of her weight affect her even when she was younger. “I never took the bullying to heart. And I didn’t let it bring me down because I’ve always known there’s much more to me than my weight or my size, she added.
 
For her role in Dabangg, Sonakshi went through rigorous workout and fitness techniques and she's proud she made it to where she wanted to be. "It was a huge achievement for me. And I was so proud of myself. But people were still talking about how much I weighed and how I looked! Eventually, I told myself that I wouldn’t let them bring me down because they had no idea what I had been through, how hard I had worked to get here. And, in the end, it really didn’tmatter what they thought. They were not the ones in a big-ticket Bollywood film, I was!” said the33-years old actress.
