The show business is a fiercely competitive industry where looking glamorous at all times is a compulsion. Even if you gain an extra ounce, you won’t be spared. Or maybe you will, from your next few films.
Addressing the media during the chat show, Priyanka Chopra revealed that she too has been a victim of body shaming when she was a teenager. “I was a skinny, gawky teenager and I had crazy frizzy hair that I didn’t know how to control. People made me feel awkward because I didn’t look like everyone else,” she said.
One of the ladies in the show confessed that her description is quite contrary to her contemporary self, as everyone now aims to look like Priyanka Chopra. “Later I figured out what looks best on myself,” Priyanka revealed.
The Bajirao Mastani actress said body shaming is pretty common in B-town. “I think it happens to all of us especially in our business where you are supposed to look a certain way, dress a certain way and yeah you get pressure from everyone around you saying “you used to fit into that dress last month and this month you don’t.”
The Jai Gangajaal actress shared that not just people in the show business but society, in general, is critical of how a woman looks. “Not just people in the business but girls, in general, have to look a certain way.”
Finally slamming all kind of crazy thoughts of body mechanism, the Mary Kom actress said, “You need to figure out what your strengths are, put them in a box and just focus on those, all your weaknesses just disappear after that and you focus on what’s good for you.”
