Celebrated south Indian actress Nithya Menen, who is making her Bollywood debut with the multistarrer “Mission Mangal” says that actresses always have to deal with an unrealistic expectation of beauty, which is unfair, and that body shaming should be stopped.
Although the demand for a so-called perfect face and figure is more in Bollywood compared to the South, asked for her opinion on the matter, Nithya Menen told the media:” I think it is important for people to appreciate different form of beauty. Every individual looks different and that is the beauty. It is so negative when people say, ‘your nose is not perfect, fix it’.”
“We are born in a certain way. We should celebrate that. We should start it from childhood and never body shame anyone. I know people tend to talk to children about their skin colour. At times, kids are called ‘motu’ etc. Stop it right there. So much trolling happens on social media, it is ruthless! They expect unrealistic beauty from actors and it is such a negative space,” said the “OK Kanmani” famed actress. (IANS)
