In a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, the actress opened up about her experience.
During the chat, the actress explained that she had gained weight and would ‘look bigger’ in the photos shared on Instagram. She said that people on the internet used to call her ‘fat’ earlier and now when she has lost weight, they are still commenting on her weight. “Being on the bigger side or being on the smaller side, it is each person to himself,” she added. Amid the interview, the actress also shared that she received comments on the colour of her skin. She explained that her social media posts were filled with comments like ‘Oh you’re looking black, you’re looking dark.’
Responding to the same, the actress gave an empowering and bold response. “I said, ‘Look, what is wrong, even if I am a dark-skinned person, first of all, change your opinion, don’t call anybody black because black is beautiful,” she voiced her opinion. Before making her Hindi film debut with Raavan, the actress starred in numerous Tamil, Malayalam, and Telugu movies.
