Sonakshi Sinha confesses she was once body-shamed and called a cow by a celebrity model

 

 

The second season of Vogue BFFs just got better! Well the intriguing revelations made by these BFFs in B-town are a proof. This time around, Manish Malhotra made a grand entrance with none other than Sonakshi Sinha.

Who knew that that Sonakshi Sinha and Manish Malhotra were BFFs? And while they sat on the couch probed by the host Neha Dhupia, they did end up spilling a few beans. On a segment on BFFs with Vogue, Sonakshi Sinha admitted to being a victim of body shaming by a model and celebrity.

It is a known fact that Sonakshi lost over 30 kgs of weight before making her debut in Salman Khan’s ‘Dabanng’ and is an inspiration to many who struggles to lose weight. However, the actress too was a victim of body shaming.

It was during the rapid-fire round on the show that the actress recalled an incident when she was body-shamed when she walked the ramp during the initial stages of her career. She said that a celebrity model, who was also a columnist, had called her a Cow. She had said that, ‘What is this cow doing on the catwalk…?’ While the actress refrained from revealing the identity of the model, Manish blew the lid off by saying, “ahh Shamita Singha!”

Talking about trolls she had earlier told a daily, “I block negative energy, I don’t assign importance to irrelevant opinions. I was bullied in school for being an overweight teenager, but I remained proud of who I was. When I entered the industry, I came down to 60 kilos from 90 because it’s a visual medium and looks do matter. Regardless of my weight, my debut film Dabangg was a huge hit. So, who is anyone to tell me how I should be?”
