Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia gave a befitting reply to people who target women and body shame them on social media
Neha Dhupia, who recently got married to her best friend and actor Angad Bedi, has spoken about how people judged her on body type and dress sense.
Many actresses like Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Ayesha Takia, Vaani Kapoor, late Sridevi and Neha have been accused of opting for cosmetic surgery to improve and enhance their looks in the past.
In an interview with Filmfare, Neha strictly denied going in for botox treatment. She has repeated her statements stating that she is not one of those who would hurt themselves to make her body part look in a certain way.
"There's no need for it. Some of the most beautiful women are the ones who haven't gone through it. But if you're doing it because it makes you feel secure, do it. But why hurt yourself? I'm not the type to do anything like that. The most I do is threading my eyebrows," Neha told Filmfare.
She added, "Recently, I worked with Vidya Balan (Tumhari Sulu), I'm working with Kajol (Eela). Both these women haven't gone through any of this and they look beautiful. And these are women, who focus on their jobs. (Laughs) You either focus on your job or you focus on the boob job."
Neha, who created ripples with her bold and sexy avatar as Julie in 2004, said she was a victim of body shaming.
"I've been a victim of body shaming. I remember wearing this lehenga choli as a showstopper. I believed I was looking damn good. The next day, a leading publication carried a big article on me. My father, on seeing my photo, went on to read it. But it said I was not of the perfect size. It went on to describe 15 horrible things about me. No one deserves to wake up to such stuff. No one has the right to decide what looking great is, what normal is. My advice to people who body shame is #GoF**kYourself. I'm speaking for a section of women who're fit, who live their lives and who eat well. And for women, who give up chocolates or starve themselves, #GoF**kYourself," Neha hit out at the critics.
Talking about people who comment on actresses' body parts on social media, she said, "People need to understand that the new F-word is not f**k, its fat. People who troll, aren't the right body size either. Women kill themselves trying to look a certain way. They don't have a life left. Internationally, you have women showing off their tyres, their curves and their celluloid, there's nothing wrong with it."
