Aishwarya’s post pregnancy flab creates controversy

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been a subject of great controversy today. Post pregnancy, she has gained oodles of weight and her recent picture at Mukesh Ambani’s party generating lots of controversy. Fans criticized Ash for not shedding her weight as it is five months since she delivered a baby girl. But those who is associated with the actress and former beauty queen though so many years favors Ash and lashes at those who targeted Aishwarya for her baby weight.

A video compilation of her recent photos attracted comments like, "She is a Bollywood actress and being a part of showbiz it is her duty to look good and fit. Till now she has been praised for her beauty, so it is only fair that she should also be criticized if she is not able to live up to it. She needs to learn from people like Victoria Beckham who are back to size zero weeks after their delivery! She needs to lose that weight... its been close to 5 months already!"

Designer Sabyasachi, who styled Aishwarya in ‘Raavan’ said, "Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has just delivered a baby and like any other woman she would definitely take time to put off that weight. She's a super celebrity and I think she is doing a commendable job by showing her real side to the media. Earlier, she was criticised for being unreal and plastic."

Designer Rina Dhaka says that a new mother gains weight especially when she is taking care of her baby.

"It is very difficult for a woman to shed that weight. I think the media is being very harsh on her. They are deliberately printing those photos which are taken at an angle which makes her look fat or highlights her double chin," Rina said.

Designer Rocky S lashed out at the critics. "Why people are obsessed with Aishwarya's weight. This maternity weight takes time to lose. Being an internatianol celebrity she is not hiding her face, rather she is enjoying her motherhood. She should not be pressurised and she doesn't have to look perfect at this moment."

Ordinary people have also hit out at the criticism.

"Focus on Aishwarya's post preg weight gain pathetic. Glad she's not a celeb bimbo who's wheeled in 2 plastic surgery straight frm labour room," said one Twitter user, while another wrote, "Reports in some parts of the media about Aishwarya's weight gain are vile and irresponsible. Let the woman be."

"Utterly gross & sexist commentary in sections of the media on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Makes me sick with anger at how we deconstruct women," said another tweet.
