Alaya F on being fat and skinny shamed

Recalling her experiences, Alaya said, “This is indeed a competitive industry. We all have our insecurities about our appearances and how we look but let’s admit that we are also way beyond how we look. My character in Bade Miyaan Chote Miyaan was also about that. Also, personally, for me, I have never always looked this way. Growing up I was a healthy kid. I was overweight, and fat-shamed all the time.”

She further elaborated, “It’s only now when I have dropped all the weight because I believe in self-care and do my workouts that I look a certain way. But, even then, despite losing all the weight now, I have people skinny-shaming me. There’s literally no end to this because I have been fat-shamed and skinny-shamed.”

Alaya made her acting debut in ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ alongside Saif Ali Khan. She has since appeared in films such as ‘Freddy’, ‘Always Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat’, ‘U-Turn’, and ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’. She is the granddaughter of Kabir Bedi and the daughter of Pooja Bedi and businessman Farhan Ebrahim Furniturewala
