She divulged those secret to Farah and shares the same weighty issue with another celebrity Karan Johar. Add to the woes, Karan Johar also weighed 120 Kilos.

Both Karan and Sonam shared how they faced the pressure of the society due to their physical appearance. They revealed how during childhood they used to eat things which their mother abadoned. Their schoolmates used to tease them due to over weight. 

Sonam says, “I was depressed when I went to boarding school at the age of 15. I was the only Indian girl in my school in Singapore. There was plenty of junk food and mum had stopped all chocolates at home. Here, I was free and ate; though it was comfort eating and I also gained weight due to hormonal imbalances. I went from 50 kilos to 90 kilos in jus 4 months. I gained 40 kilos. I used to eat 1-pint ice cream, two large pizzas alone and instead of three meals would have 10 meals a day. My mum started crying seeing me.”

Sonam says, “When Sanjay Leela Bhansali saw me, he said that I look like a painting from Ajanta. Don’t lose weight, you have those curves.” And, Farah quips, “Tum Ajanta ki painting thi ki poori Ajanta ki cave thi?”
