Sonakshi Sinha has lashed out at her weight-watchers, and made it clear that she’s not going to turn anorexic for anyone. The 27-year-old actor posted an illustration of a skeleton on Instagram, with a caption that read, “To all those who keep commenting on my weight, whether it’s a full picture, or a close-up where you can’t see jack. Take a good look at this picture. Now get this: 1) this ain’t ever gonna be me. 2) get over it. 3) i wish u could see which finger I hold up for shallow and idiotic people like yourself (sic).” And, she went on to snub the fashion police with another “#idontgiveadamn” post, which drew full support from her peers and the fraternity.
Actor Parineeti Chopra tweeted, “Sonakshi shows a finger to the fashion police ... So proud and glad that actresses are not afraid to stand up ... they speak their heart and demand their respect!! GO GIRLS!!!”

Adding kilos has always been a ‘weighty’ issue in Bollywood, and it’s not just Sonakshi who has fallen prey to constant criticism for curves. “Beauty is a social construct, this model image of an ideal woman has been hard-wired into us. Kudos to Sonakshi for speaking up, but she must learn to ignore, Let them bark — it’s the price you pay for being a celebrity,” says filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. Actor Zarine Khan, who has also been criticised for her weight, says, “I have been saying this for the longest time and I value it when actresses speak their minds, like how Sonakshi has. I am glad she has spoken up.”
