The actress, who has a slightly pear-shaped body type, revealed how people used to pass rude comments on her when she was initially skinny, and later it all changed to being slightly plumped.

Now that I’m like this so they say, ‘Ohh, your weight is not reducing. I’m like relax guys, I’m into fitness now. I work out daily. I do it for my happiness. It gives me an adrenalin rush. It keeps my body agile. I have stopped getting on the weighing scale. I block people who body shame me. I don’t think twice about it.”

When we were going to get married, and I proposed to her, the same night we had a meeting with her family and we discussed these possibilities. We discussed that it can happen that I will be compared or referred to as her husband and how will I deal with it. The meeting was more like my interview and the parents were asking me questions.”
