Sonam K Ahuja Recalls The Time When She Was Body-Shamed And People Would Taunt Her About Marriage

‘Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder’- agreed and stamped, but what do we understand by the term ‘beauty’? Is it based on our own choice of thoughts or how society defines beauty? If our thoughts flicker for even a moment while answering these questions, we should never criticise anyone, for it will mean that we ourselves don’t understand what beauty means! As funny as it sounds, people who fat-shame and criticise how others look are the people who often develop a cold feet when asked about beauty. And when it comes to our Bollywood celebs, gone are the days when stars would digest everything bad being said about them as celebs like Sonam Kapoor Ahuja surely knows how to give it back to body-shamers!

Celeb trolling has become a common phenomenon. Dislike for a particular celebrity only results in hate messages, memes and what not! And this very concept gave birth to Arbaaz Khan’s recent hit show, Quick Heal Pinch by Arbaaz, which is mainly based on celeb trolling and how stars give it back to trollers! Stars like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Karan Johar, Sonakshi Sinha and Varun Dhawan have already made their appearance on the show and in the recent episode, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja will be seen shunning trollers and the criticisms she used to face as people would often tell her, “shaadi kaun karega”, based on her looks!

Yes, as unbelievable as it sounds, a teaser of the show contained a glimpse of Sonam Kapoor Ahuja where she revealed the same. The beautiful Neerja actress shared, “People would say, bahut patli hai, bahot moti ho gayi hai, kaali ho gayi hai, lumbi ho gayi hai, shaadi kaun karega. It’s not correct.” She further added, “I honestly believe that a hater is a lover” and laughed it off! And we believe there’s no better way to address a hater than giving it back with a smile and so she did, seamlessly!



In the same teaser of the show, host Arbaaz Khan is seen asking Sonam Kapoor Ahuja if Bebo (Kareena Kapoor Khan) is on social media. Sonam, who is a close friend of Kareena Kapoor Khan and has also worked with her on Veere Di Wedding, revealed that Kareena is present on Twitter, but under a pseudonym and she knows this 'for a fact'! Kareena too, time and again in interviews has indirectly said that she has a complete tab of whatever’s happening on social media as she ‘might or might not be in it’!
