Talk of transformation and weight loss, and actor Sonakshi Sinha says she has ‘been there, done that’. Perhaps the top name in the list of female actors who have been often spoken about their curvaceous body, Sona feels, “Since I have never given anyone a chance to point a finger at my work or anything else I do, so they pick on my weight and physical appearance.”
Ever since the star kid — daughter of actor Shatrughan Sinha — made her acting debut in Dabangg (2010), she has faced flak for her body type but clearly these body-shaming comments don’t affect her any longer.
“Nobody should be able to tell you how you are supposed to look. I have certain Indianness in me, which has worked very well in my favour. I have always been projected with a very healthy body image,” says the 29-year-old adding that the way she looks has only been an advantage that got her more work and good roles.
Not paying heed to what people say, Sona admits that she’s an absolute foodie. “I eat what I love to eat. I am a big foodie. I believe in working out. I feel we work too hard to deprive ourselves of the things we love and I love food. I would rather do it the healthy way irrespective of putting on or losing weight.”
The actor also recalls how during her college days, her classmates used to be obsessed with skinny models showcased in magazines and TV. “People will always try to tell you to look a certain way or else you won’t look beautiful. How ridiculous is that? I will never advocate something like this,” she says.
