Neha Dhupia was fat-shamed recently because of her post-pregnancy weight, but the actress immediately slammed the publication with a social media post. Case in point - an article with a headline that read, ‘Neha Dhupia’s shocking weight gain post pregnancy.’ Soon after Neha got hold of that piece, she called them out and many celebrities from Bollywood came out in support of the actress. In her long social media post, Neha stated that she doesn’t owe anyone an explanation for the same, but at the same time, the mother of one wanted to take this to a larger platform as fat shaming needs to be stopped for everyone and not just celebrities.
Having said that, Neha mentioned that fitness is her priority and not fitting into society’s books regarding looks. People also need to keep a broader perspective and stop judging a person irrespective of their age, sex, height, race, weight or gender. Coming back to the topic in question, fat shaming, it is high time that people understand gaining weight post pregnancy is normal. Forget that, even if a person is healthy in general, it is nobody’s else’s business as one is entitled to his/her own choices.
On a similar note, it does take time for a new mother to shed weight after delivering a child. There is no point in wondering as to why she has gained/lost weight, as it happens naturally. Society needs to understand the curves are beautiful too and there is nothing to be ashamed of. (Agencies)
