Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who has often been body-shamed on social media, says there is so much more to a person than their looks and that physical appearance is just an illusion. In a conversation with a FM Channel, Sonakshi said, “There is so much more to a person than their looks. I am someone who has been on the other side and thus seen both sides of the coin. I have grown up as an over-weight teenager. It was not ever a problem for me.”
The Dabangg actress says her weight and looks was such a small thing in comparison to the skills she is blessed with. “I used to focus on other things which I am good at. That way I never felt pressurized to get slim,” she added.
Sonakshi, 31, says even after shedding enough weight and becoming an actor, she has made sure to project a healthy body image. “And come across as a good impression for people especially girls who get easily influenced at a very young age. I understand this considering, that I too wished to look like these slim models which would appear on these fashion magazines in my younger days. Physical appearance is an illusion. It is unrealistic. That is it,” she said.
She will be next seen in Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi which is about to release on August 24.
