Singer Neha Bhasin has said that she has learnt to be comfortable in her own skin, but revealed that during her stint with the pop group Viva, she was often fat-shamed.

Sharing a picture of herself on Instagram Stories, Neha wrote, "I was 49 kgs in Viva and I was fat shamed everyday. I am 65kgs here. I put on weight in quarantine and I have never felt sexier. Weight is a number you can change but shaming one self is damaging and toxic. Sex appeal is not in your body parts. It's in you."

She also posted a few pictures of Matahari, emphasising on the importance of confidence, and not size, when it comes to sex appeal. "Sexist exotic lady of all times #matahari didn't have abs. It's time we embrace human bodies in their natural form. I am all for fitness but I do not condone fat shaming, starvation, low esteem because actresses have washboard abs. Judging oneself and others, fake beauty standards, lies on social media by women who may have had procedures, put out wrong messages."

Neha recently released her romantic track Taara. Talking about her journey, Neha told Hindustan Times recently, “My journey has been topsy turvy. I started out as a pop singer, then pop died down, and I had to dig my feet into Bollywood which is not something I wanted actually. I didn’t know how to do it, I wasn’t trained to be a playback singer. Back in the day you didn’t have auto tune, you had to be a really good singer, music directors wouldn’t let you stand agar aapko gaana nahi aata toh."
