Subuhii Joshii opens up about her abusive relationship with ex-fiance Siddharth Sagar
Subuhii Joshii appeared in shows like ‘Big Switch’, ‘Spiltsville’, ‘Bh Se Bhade’, ‘Comedy Classes’ but then, her life turned upside down as she got diagnosed with health issues and she broke up with comedian-actor Siddharth Sagar. These things affected her mental health too.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Subuhii spoke about the bad phase of her life. She said, “I got diagnosed with PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease) and Thyroid and started putting on weight due. I gained 20-25 kilos. I was badly body shamed, even called names on social media. And then the breakup… I couldn’t take it anymore and slowly slipped into depression. I started avoiding everyone.”
As she gained weight, she didn’t get works. “Rejections are very difficult to handle… They didn’t say anything to my face during auditions but then I would later come to know that my body weight was the issue. There are stereotypes attached to how a Heroine should look like. Unko Kareena ya Katrina jaise body chahiye hota hai. How films like ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ (2015) are made in Bollywood or shows do you see led by chubby actors?,” she said.
Her relationship with Sagar also led to depression. She said that it was an abusive relationship and everything around started getting toxic, she felt her life was valueless and decided to end her career. Subuhii said, “That’s when my mother held me back and gave me courage. And I decided to fight back. The lockdown was a sort of a boon for me. I changed my diet and worked out rigorously four hours a day. My doctor was like how did you do this? I’ve shed the extra pounds and back at 55 kgs.”
