Bollywood actress Zareen Khan says she learnt to ignore people who bodyshame her and adds that initial failure in her career made her a stronger person.
“People around me made me feel uncomfortable and conscious with their comments. In school, whenever students tried to bully me because of my body weight, I would give it back to them. So, after a point, they were intimidated. So, I would say we should rather avoid those people knowing that they are just negative people. I am a wide structured person and I cannot cut my bones off,” Zareen said.
The actress is all set for the release of her new film “Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele”, and says she is happy with the way the film has shaped up.
“Right now I am very happy with the kind of work that is coming my way, and I am not limiting myself to only Hindi cinema. I do not understand why, on the one hand we say that we are living in ‘one world’ and on the other hand, we still look down upon regional cinema. I have got more interesting offers in Punjabi and Tamil and Telugu film industries,” the actress claimed. (IANS)
