Sayantani, who has previously spoken about how she gets messages and comments from people asking her to tell them about her breast size, has now said that she has been receiving such comments since she was a teenager.
In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, she said, “As far as my memory goes, I have faced such comments from my teenage years. One lady said ‘you are not flat-chested, you are pretty okay, on the higher side, in terms of your breast size, you must be having a lot of sex, right?’ So she thought that if you have a lot of sex, your breasts grow. I don’t even know what was that supposed to mean. And I’m like… I was a virgin then. I was like what is happening? So such things, they scar you unknowingly.”
Previously, Sayantani shared a long post on social media slamming haters and questioning people on body-shaming. She captioned her post: “A thread to end the “size” mentality! I found out today is #WorldHealthDay but you know “Mental Health” has now become the most important aspect of Health! Yes be FIT with your bodies but don’t forget your MIND!!! It’s high time we Normalise all body types, I am here for this change, are you?”
She also wrote: “Yesterday in one of my interactive sessions someone asked me my bra size! Though I gave the person a befitting reply (which btw a lot of you appreciated) still I felt there is so much more I want to talk about.. Any form of BODY SHAMING is BAD!! Period. But particularly, I struggle to wrap my head around the fact that what is this fascination towards female BREASTS ?? As to what size it is ?? A cup, B, C or D etc ?? And it's not only the boys, even us girls have this sort of a conditioning!”
In conclusion, Sayantani wrote that the only size that matters should be of one’s heart. “In a world where the 'Human Race' itself is struggling for its existence, ‘SIZE MATTERS’ -- so let's all have a large heart which is full of love, self-love, self-respect and respect for one another, compassion, acceptance and lots of empathy!!!” she wrote.
