BOLLYWOOD: For someone who has always been comfortable with her body, Vidya Balan, time and gain, has been trolled and body-shamed for not conforming to the film industry’s stereotypes. While this never really bothered the actress who went on to give box-office hits such as Kahaani, Dirty Picture and No One Killed Jessica, to name a few, the actress in a new video speaks openly about body shaming and how she was called names.
The video begins with her singing, “Kabhi tu moti kahta hai, kabhi to chhoti kahta hai….,” and continues to talk till she gets emotional and starts crying. The actress throws light on the fact that a person’s self-confidence is hampered when they are shamed.
The video went viral with fans responding with, “Inspirational video by @vidya_balan is changing the opinion of people for body shaming. This is a great step forward… I am glad that somebody is working on it #DhunBadalKeTohDekho (sic).” Another user wrote, “You are an amazing person Vidya not only one of the best actress. Take a bow Lady!! (sic)”.
