Fat shaming does not bother me: Neha Dhupia

To which, the “Tumhari Sulu” actress responded with: “I don’t owe anyone an explanation because fat shaming like this doesn’t bother me one bit.
“But I do want to address this as a larger problem because fat shaming needs to stop for everyone not just celebrities.
“As a new mom I want to be fit, healthy and energetic for my daughter,” she added.
Neha, who is married to actor Angad Bedi, said that she works out everyday. “Sometimes twice a day because for me… fitness is a priority and not ‘fitting into’ society’s standards regarding looks.
