Bollywood's ace actress Parineeti Chopra who is all set to entertain the audience with the biopic of Badminton player Saina Nehwal has opened up about the body-shaming criticism. Before 2015, Parineeti was overweight and faced many issues with this. However, she opened up about it during an interview and called it 'most ridiculous thing on earth'.
Parineeti gave an interview to Bollywood Bubble and doled out, "I agreed with them that I wasn't looking my best. I wasn't doing my best for my fitness. I think I would have gotten hurt if I was doing everything that I could and I was really my fittest, and then people didn't like the way I looked. I think that would have affected me. But I agreed with them because I knew I wasn't doing my best."
After dropping the photoshoot pics showing off her transformation, she said, "Somehow, I was aware that would happen if I did my job right".
She also added, "Body-shaming is the most ridiculous thing on earth. It is like shaming someone for having black eyes and saying, 'You have black eyes? What is wrong with you? How can you have black eyes?' It is something natural and what you are born with. But every human being should strive to be their fittest. They shouldn't strive to be the skinniest. You can be fit at your body type."
