While it is all glitz and glamour on the front, an actor life is not easy and simple. From following a strict diet to dealing with the pressure of always looking good, an actor has to do a lot in the backdrop. Recently, actress Shruti Haasan was incessantly trolled for undergoing plastic surgery but she didn't remain quiet and shut up body shammers like a boss.
Along with a collage of herself, the actress wrote a strongly-worded post, in which she said that she is not "driven" by other people's opinions about her and that people can "avoid" commenting about how fat or thin she looks. "So .... I decided to post this right after my previous post and I’ll tell you why. I’m not one driven by other people’s opinions of me but the constant commenting and she’s too fat now she’s too thin is so avoidable. These two pictures have been taken three days apart. I’m sure there are women out there who relate to what I’m going to say. Most often I’m at the mercy of my hormones mentally and physically and over the years I work hard to try and have a healthy relationship with it. It isn’t easy. The pain isn’t easy the physical changes aren’t easy but what’s become easier to me is to share my journey," she wrote.
Advising people to love themselves, she further added, "No one famous or not is in a position to judge another person. Ever. That’s just not cool. I’m happy to say this is my life my face and yes I’ve had plastic surgery which I’m not ashamed to admit. Do I promote it? No am I against it ? No - it’s just how I choose to live. The biggest favour we can do for ourselves and others is just be and learn to accept the changes and the movement of our bodies and minds. Spread love and be chill. I’m learning everyday to love me for me just a little more because the greatest love story of my life is with myself and I hope yours is too :)."
