Sonakshi Sinha is one of the most talented actors in Bollywood. From being an overweight teen to a tinsel town diva, her journey has been quite remarkable.
Recently the actress appeared on Arbaaz Khan’s chat show Pinch. On the show, Sonakshi was shown some rude comments by people and she came across a comment who called her a ‘buffalo’.
To which, she said “B-U-F-F-E-L-L-O. Pehle spelling toh seekh le yaar!” she laughed.
Sonakshi Sinha gives a befitting reply
Another troll advised Sonakshi to go on a hunger strike so that she would lose weight and get more roles. “Isse zyada roles main kar bhi nahi sakti. Sorry! Bohot roles hai, bohot kaam hai mere paas,” she replied.
On the show, the actress also opened up about her thoughts on body-shaming.
She said, “Earlier, I used to read it and used to think how do people get themselves to say things like that because if you cannot say such things in front of someone how do you get the strength to say such things online. Koi aakar muje ye samne bole mai do mukke na de dun usko.”
While candidly talking to Arbaaz, Sonakshi said, “When I did Dabangg (2010), you had seen me before that also and I was very very big, I was unhealthy, I was unfit and I lost 30 kgs to do your film and still people found words to say about me, about my shape, about how I looked.”
She further added, “Earlier, I used to go in the defensive space. I had put in so much effort, I have reduced so much, they have not seen the half of it. They have not seen the effort that has gone in, they have not seen the blood, sweat and tears that have gone in. And, still they are talking so, to hell with it, main jaisi hun vaisi rahungi, aapko dekhna hai aap dekho aap ko mat dekhna hai aap mat dekho.”
She further added how she deals with online criticism and that is by blocking them on social media.
