Bollywood actress Nithya Menen speaks up against body shaming

# Headlines Entertainment Tops

Mission Mangal actress Nithya Menen has said that being subjected to body-shaming took a toll on her. She also said that people who make such comments are always quick to jump to assumptions.

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Nithya said, “Of course, you get affected for sure. There’s no doubt about it. But what happens is that you realize that you will never get criticized by someone who does more than you; you’ll always get criticized by someone who does lesser than you.”

“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.

Nithya said that she never raised a hue and cry about body-shaming because she got her due, irrespective of how she looks. “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.

Last year, Nithya made her Bollywood debut in Jagan Shakti’s Mission Mangal, which featured an ensemble cast including Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, and Sonakshi Sinha. Currently, 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 the 10th of July.
