Actress Nithya Menen recently in an interview to Pinkvilla opened up about body-shaming and how the comments took a toll on her. She added that people are quick to judge without thinking.
“Of course, you get affected for sure. There’s no doubt about it. But what happens is that you realise that you will never get criticised by someone who does more than you; you’ll always get criticised by someone who does lesser than you,” she said.
“Nobody asks why you’re putting on weight; they just assume. There are so many questions to it. Are they going through some health related issues? There’s so much that they don’t even think about,” she added.
“Those are small things. I don’t believe in blowing up any personal problem and protesting. You do it yourself, you overcome these things. I have never spoken or given interviews about these things. But I do something about it. The way people look at me in the industry, with or without weight, it doesn’t matter, I’m given my due. That speaks more for me,” she said.
On the work front, she is gearing up for the release of her digital debut Breathe: Into The Shadows. The Amazon Prime Video series also stars Abhishek Bachchan and Amit Sadh, and is slated to release on July 10.
