Bollywood stars who experienced body shaming after gaining weight

The multifaceted actress has never been secretive about the perceived beauty standards in Indian culture. She has also discussed instances in which she received criticism for her weight. She admitted to long-standing body hatred in an interview.
"It was important for me to have gone through what I did. It was very public, and at that time, it was so insurmountable. I come from a non-film family. There was no one to tell me that these phases don't last. My weight issue had become a national issue. I have always been a fat girl; I wouldn't say that I am at a stage where my fluctuating weight doesn't bother me anymore at all. But I have come a long way," the actress said.
2) Neha DhupiaImage:
Neha received harsh criticism for packing on pounds after becoming a mother. The Chup Chup Ke actress had previously shared in an interview that she was unfazed by what people thought of her physical appearance.
3) Mrunal ThakurImage:

4) Tara SutariaImage:
The young actress also discussed how her weight has led to her being called many derogatory names.
Tara confessed during an interview, "People say hurtful things now and then. Some people called me anorexic when I did SOTY 2. A little while later, I put on two-three kilos and they were like she's put on weight. That's something I have come to terms with. It used to bother me a lot in the beginning."
