Television actress, Vahbiz Dorabjee has often been targeted for her fluctuating weight. As a result, the beautiful actress became a victim of trolls, who relentlessly body-shamed her. Vahbiz was in the headlines recently as she lashed out at a YouTube channel for morphing her pictures and publishing them. In a recent interview, the actress talked about being harassed and bullied in the past because of her weight.
Vahbiz Dorabjee had tied the knot with Pyaar Ki Ye Ek Kahani fame, Vivian Dsena in the year 2013, surprising their fans. However, in 2016, after a troubled married life, the two had announced their divorce. Since then, the two have been living their happy life separately.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Vahbiz opened up about the morphing incident and why she felt it had crossed all the lines. Calling it unethical, Vahbiz said, "It is not the case that grapes are sour. Waajan ki toh baat hi nahi hai, kaunsi mein phele badi patli thi. I have been curvy, and my pictures show that. What has angered me is that it is completely unethical. You are morphing someone’s picture just to get your freaking likes and views. I have always been on the healthy side and embraced it. I’m very comfortable in my skin, and that has always been my USP."
Vahbiz further stated that the whole episode was about harassment and bullying and continued, "I have paid a price in the past and I’m not interested in paying a price in the future either. Initially, I was very naive. I didn’t know what to do about it. But now, I’m going to voice it out." Vahbiz also stated that bad things were written about her in the past, which had been quite disturbing for her. She also added that although the link was pulled down after her post, she didn't receive any apologies from the channel.
For the unversed, a few days back, Vahbiz Dorabjee had attended the birthday party of her friend, Munisha Khatwani and looked gorgeous in a floral one-shoulder dress. However, a media portal edited the picture to show that Vahbiz has gained massive weight. Sharing the edited picture, Vahbiz had lashed out at the portal and had written, "Spot the difference!!! This is the reason a certain section of the media is losing respect in our eyes. Last night I was at a birthday party and this is what a certain portal has done with my media bytes. The above pic has been clearly edited just to get a certain amount of views.”
Vahbiz had called it a shameful act and had added, “What a shameful act by #Tvmasala. Not gonna take this lying down. Defaming and Body shaming someone for views and likes will not be tolerated. I urge all the artists to put a stop to this shallow so-called journalism and be vocal about it. Enough is enough. SHAME ON TV MASALA." Soon, her friends from the industry had come out in her support, slamming the news portal for their disgusting act.
On the professional front, Vahbiz was last seen in the show, Bahu Hamari Rajni Kant!
