Aneri Vajani finds support in Beyhadh co-actor Jennifer Winget
Actor Jennifer Winget says it’s better to unfollow an actor, who you don’t approve off, rather than trolling her on social media.tv Updated: Jul 06, 2017 11:51 IST
Actor Aneri Vajani was recently trolled for a bikini picture that she posted on Instagram for International Yoga Day. The actor was body-shamed for being skinny and dressed inappropriately. Following this, her Beyhadh
co-actor Jennifer Winget came out in support of Aneri. Winget says that calling someone skinny is as bad as calling someone fat and should not be done. “Telling someone they’re skinny is the same as telling someone they’re fat – neither are nice things to say. And when you have nothing nice to say, it’s best not to say anything at all. By shaming each other, we’re really shaming ourselves. We work hard in our jobs, just as anyone in any other profession, and at the end of the day, the last thing we want is to bother about what people think about us. If you don’t approve, just unfollow us. That’s easy!” Jennifer says.
Although she has not met Aneri after the incident, Jennifer says that she is not someone who gets bothered by such things. “We’re shooting as usual, but at different locations, so I haven’t met her yet. But from what I know of Aneri, I can say for sure that she hasn’t let this affect her or her work, the slightest bit. Neither the post nor the comments will make, break or change her as a person. She is the energy on set and she’s not one to let anybody else’s opinions determine her self worth,” says Jennifer.
After the incident, Aneri posted an apt reply for everyone who trolled her. Check it out:
Many television actors such as Sonarika Bhadoria and Nia Sharma, have been trolled in the past for posting bikini pictures and Jennifer says she can’t understand why this happens. “The bikini has been around for eons, and I can’t believe we haven’t grown up and moved on from it. But then again, when was it ever about the bikini, it was always about the actress wearing it! ”says Jennifer.
