Aishwarya opens up about being fat-shamed post Aaradhya’s birth
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to impress us with her act in Atul Manjrekar’s ‘Fanney Khan‘. The actress who was last seen in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, will portray the character of a singing sensation in the film. While the story of ‘Fanney Khan’ revolves around the story of a father’s struggle to fulfil his daughter’s wish, on the other hand, it also sheds light on an important issue- body shaming.
This issue has been prevalent for a long time and our B-town actresses too are fat-shamed by the trollers. In fact, Aishwarya herself fell prey to the same after giving birth to Aaradhya. In a recent interaction with DNA, when the former miss world was asked to comment regarding the issue, she said, “When I became a mother, it was the most beautiful feeling in the world. There were several hormonal changes within, but it didn’t change anything. And way before all this, whenever people would ask me fashion or trend-based questions, I’d always tell them to be comfortable in their skin. At least now you know I meant it and it wasn’t just for the quote (smiles). I believed it when I said that positivity is so much more than negativity and it can help to ease the crushing impacts of that. Be your best friend and in being so, be brutally honest with yourself. Sometimes, when you are down, you need to reach out to those people who you think can connect with you and comfort you enough.”
Revealing how she dealt with the same, Aishwarya said, “There was never a point of self-doubt. I’m so happy in my own life with Aaradhya around and the positivity as well as the clarity that I have in my head about myself. At the end of the day, these are the choices I’m making. “
Ash is a strong woman, we say! What do you feel?
