Sonam Kapoor, the Fashion queen of Bollywood, opened up about her experiences with body shaming and how she has got over it. The actress says she finally feels her body is healthy after putting her body through a lot during her teens to attain that perfect figure. Sonam wrote for Buzzfeed, to share her experiences and advise young women to never chase a flawless body. She said,
'We’ve been taught that women need to be flawless even when our flawlessness is wildly implausible, sexy even when our sexiness is a break from plot. We’re sprinting through Jurassic Park in heels, fighting supervillains in strapless corsets, being stranded on deserted islands for days without a hint of stubble. Real female bodies are so taboo that hair-removal-cream ads show hairless legs even before the cream is applied.
The rules of beauty are strict and it’s almost impossible to win. Anushka Sharma has been skinny-shamed, Sonakshi Sinha has been fat-shamed, Katrina Kaif has been fit-shamed. These are women who are and always have been staggeringly beautiful.
