Neha Dhupia slams media report fat shaming her post baby’s birth


In November last year, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi were blessed with a baby girl and post delivering Neha did not care for her fitness and gained weight like an dutiful mother for the good health of her baby but her weight gain hit the headlines and she was being trolled. Media report fat shaming her and the new mom also gave a befitting reply.

Captioning the post “Thank you, next!” Neha wrote, “I don’t owe anyone an explanation because fatshaming like this doesn’t bother me one bit. But I do want to address this as a larger problem because fatshaming needs to stop for EVERYONE and not just celebs. As a new mom i want to be fit, healthy and energetic for my daughter. So I work out everyday, sometimes twice a day because for me...’Fitness’ is a priority and not fitting into’ society’s standards regarding looks. And I hope in the future people are kinder to each other while making such vapid and vile comments. To quote @pattonoswalt ... Be Kind. It’s chaos out there."

Angad also blast at the publication, saying, "this is the maximum mileage you will ever get." 

"#hinakhurram a woman to fatshame another woman who has just delivered a baby throws a lot of light on your upbringing. Please get well soon. #improudofmywife @NehaDhupia."

Bollywood celebs and Neha’s close pals like Karan Johar, Sonam Kapoor and Onir come into Neha’s defence.

Calling her an "amazing" woman, Karan wrote, "You walk so many paths with humour... with intelligence and with abandon! It’s never about losing weight it’s always about gaining perspective! And I hope the woman who wrote this has gained some today....”

Onir# The writer and the publication needs basic class in learning the meaning of respect/dignity and priority. Stupid insensitive comment on what is a part of a life giving process. Anyway irrespective of that the comment lacks taste/kindness
