If there is one woman who knows how to laugh at herself, it has to be Bharti Singh. The comedian, also known by her stage name ‘Lalli’, has never had qualms about cracking jokes about her looks or body frame. She ends up hugging celebrities and even pulling them towards her as part of her comic acts, and nobody minds that. As funny and charming as she comes across onscreen, she is equally flamboyant off it too. So when she made her television commercial debut, she chose a concept that well suited her personality without leaving an average Indian girl with certain unrealistic dreams about beauty.
Bharti, who is an integral part of the show Comedy Nights Bachao Taaza, has appeared in a body lotion advertisement. But what makes the TVC different is the way it trashes body shamming and the entire concept of a ’36-24-36′ figure. Bharti’s own body frame is on the heavier side. But that is exactly what makes her adorable on camera. The brand has used exactly this side of Bharti, and we are happy to see the comedian giving a strong message in such a unique manner. She explains why in today’s times even if a girl does not have the perfect figure, a flawless skin or shiney tresses, she can still be ‘beautiful’.
Bharti is today the ‘Queen of Comedy’. And the way she carries herself in the face of social stereotyes indeed makes her an inspiration for all XXL women. Bharti is beautiful, and so are all the women in any shape or size!
