A huge clap for Zarine Khan for her recent Instagram post with a blast from the past. Known for her portrayal of Princess Yashodhara in the Salman Khan-starrer Veer and the sexy Siya Diwan in Hate Story 3, the 28-years-old actress shared her pictures from the past when she was ‘big’ and said that she never used to get bothered with people’s comment, as it was her life and her body and she had the right to decide for it. “When I look at these pictures I feel proud of myself today not that I felt any lesser about myself back then. In spite of being so big I never let people’s comments or ideas about me bother me because it is my life and my body and only I have the right to decide what I am gonna do with it.,” she wrote.

Came across these pics of mine from school and college days. (White one was in std 9th & pink one was right after my std 12th exams). Whn I look at these pics I feel proud of myself today not tht I felt any lesser abt myself back then. Inspite of being so big I never let ppl's comments or ideas abt me bother me. Bcoz it's my life and my body and only I hav the right to decide wht I'm gonna do with it. Then one day I decided let me try how it feels to b a little lighter and hence started my weight loss journey. It wasn't easy at all bt everytime I looked at the Progress in the mirror I got the push to do more. I had lots more energy than before and I was loving every bit of this new person I was transforming into. Whn I became a part of this industry, I had lost all my weight ... Infact I was asked to put on weight Fr my first film to look the character. Unfortunately I was criticised to no end Fr my weight bt again I never let tht get to me. How cud I ? Those ppl had not seen me like the way I am in these pics here. And Fr me everything was jus an achievement to reach frm where I was to where I am. I continued on my fitness journey irrespective Bcoz fitness Fr me is a way of life now. Along with the weight loss came a lot of stretch marks bt instead of feeling ashamed of it and trying to hide it , I believe in flaunting it . It makes me feel like a tigress with her stripes. I have come a long way in this journey of fitness and I still hav a long way to go... Bt it's always been only Fr myself and not Bcoz of ppl shaming me ! #MondayMotivation #SayNoToBodyShaming #LoveYourself
