Young girls in India have always idolised Bollywood celebrities - the way they walk, talk, and look. In turn tend to hate their own bodies for not matching their idols’.
With the pressure to look perfect all the time, it has been almost a professional necessity for celebrities to adhere to these standards too. And if they ever tend to look "imperfect," or with extra cellulite like real human beings, these celebrities are openly shamed and often bullied on social media.
But many prominent actresses seem to have had enough of these unreal standards, and are speaking up about their body image, thereby empowering young women who look up to them to embrace themselves.
Realising the last impact of body shaming on one's psyche, many of these celebrities have become role models by promoting body positvity - a concept created to help people feel entitled to self-love and shatter stereotypes. From Aishwarya Rai and Vidya Balan to Sonakshi Sinha and Sameera Reddy, this tribe is growing, and hopefully, setting a heathier trend.
