After the success of ‘Mission Mangal’ Sonakshi Sinha is on a roll. She's currently gearing up for the release of her upcoming film, ‘Dabangg 3’ along with Salman Khan. However, things haven't always been so rosy for her.
The actress, although of one of the most popular actresses in B-town has always struggled with body shaming and has often been open about her struggle.
Sonakshi recently took it to herself to shut up her body-shammers and trolls like a boss. In a video with the title, ‘Bigger Than Them’ the actress gave it back to her trolls, who have often trolled her for her appearance, called her names.
The video starts with Sonakshi reading the negative comments by her trolls. While some of them read as, ‘cow on the catwalk’ others were to the point, yet descriptive, like ‘fatso.’
Sonakshi then went on to explain how numb and hurt she felt after reading comments like those. She added, "Those who have all the time to judge others and no work to do." Sonakshi then continued to say, that even though she felt hurt before, she has learnt to laugh it off, because her trolls are the real ‘joke.’
Sonakshi wasn’t her fittest before joining the industry. The actress worked hard, to shed over 30 kilos before she joined the movie business. However, her trolls seem unaffected by it and have continued to send her negative comments, To this, Sonakshi added in the video, "It bothered me too. But then I thought that even after shedding 30 kgs, they are still at it. That's when I said, to hell with them. Because Sonakshi Sinha is here for a reason. I made it as I was and I have nothing to hide. Not my curves, not my weight. Not my image."
Sonakshi then rounded up the video with a beautiful message. She said, : "I am not a number on the scale. And that's what makes me bigger than them. (pun intended)."
Sonakshi shared the video on her Instagram profile on Wednesday and she wrote: "Let's talk about the elephant in the room. For years I've been trolled because of my weight. I've never felt the need to react because I always believed I was "Bigger Than Them" ... Pun intended."
On the work front, Sonakshi will be next seen in ‘Dabangg 3’ and ‘Bhuj: The Pride Of India’
