Post her wedding, Manjima opened up about how she was body-shamed during her wedding. Speaking to a media house, she said, “In fact, even at our wedding, a few people commented about it. Earlier, it used to, but now I am comfortable with my body and I know that I can lose weight when I want to. I am into fitness and I am happy with myself. When there is a professional commitment that requires me to lose weight, I’ll definitely do it; I’m not sure why it should affect others.” In the interview, Manjima also revealed that she had to face PCOD issues, along with severe back pain. She is, however, looking forward to rejoining work soon after marriage
In yet another interview, Manjima opened up about a leg injury she suffered a few years ago. She said that she was in a situation where she was about to lose her leg. “I suffered a severe injury to my leg when I went to close the gate at my house in Chennai. Though we had initially thought it was a small injury (I got my leg treated at a nearby hospital), over a month later, the doctors at Apollo Hospital said that I would have to amputate my leg if I delay my treatment further. I underwent surgery and was on bed rest for several months,” she said. According to Manjima, it was the worst time of her life. “I was heartbroken. My parents felt helpless as they could not comfort me. During that period, Gautham was the one who stood by me. We were good friends ever since we first met on the sets of the Tamil movie ‘Devarattam’ in 2019. Over the months, he became all the more special to me. My parents love him a lot,” said Manjima.
