Bollywood’s Sonali Bendre has one thing to say about physique requirements within the Indian leisure trade. In contrast to different leisure industries, Bollywood wasn’t thinking about girls being “skinny” within the 1990s. As an alternative, “voluptuous” our bodies had been the usual and she or he recollects being body-shamed on the time for not becoming the mould.
Chatting with Bollywood Bubble on Monday, Bendre stated, “Being skinny was definitely not the standard of beauty. Voluptuousness was the standard of beauty and I was told you were just not woman enough if you were not voluptuous, you know which it shouldn’t be.”
“I do agree body shaming should not have any part in our society and especially little girls and the kind of ideas they are growing with and the crazy dieting people are doing. People are forgetting that it is not holistic,” she stated.
After dealing with body-shaming, she needed to face lack of acceptance for her battle with most cancers. Bendre shared that when she wished to do a shoot together with her scar exhibiting, she was “scared” to disclose it as she didn’t suppose she may step out and not using a wig. “If you’re afraid of it, crush it right there. The scary part was — as you know the bloated face, the scar, and the baldness and especially when the hair just started coming, it’s just the most ugly sight.”
She revealed that after this battle, she regained her confidence. “I said that the moment you’re scared of something and you’re feeling that ‘no, how can I do this’, I need to go out and do it and you just kill it right there or just crush it then. That was one way of looking at it.”
