Sonakshi Sinha says she was body-shamed even after losing 30 kgs for Dabangg: ‘They had no idea what I had been through’

Sonakshi Sinha said that even at school, she didn't let her body's shame affect her, since she knew it was worth more than her weight.

Sonakshi Sinha, who has been subjected to bodily embarrassment on multiple occasions, does not derive her confidence from her appearance. She said that even when she was intimidated by her weight as a child, she did not let that destroy her self-esteem.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Sonakshi said: “You know, I was always an overweight kid. It used to be 95 kilos at school. People harassed me and the boys called me by name. “However, she didn’t let criticism of her weight affect her, even when she was younger.” I never took bullying seriously. And I didn’t let it get me down because I always I knew there is much more to me than my weight or my size, “he said.

Before making her Bollywood debut with Dabangg in 2010, Sonakshi lost 30 kilos, but her weight was still a matter of debate. “It was a great achievement for me. And I was very proud of myself. But people were still talking about how much I weighed and how I looked! Eventually, I told myself that I would not let myself be knocked down because they had no idea what had happened, how hard I had worked to get here. And, in the end, it really didn’t matter what they thought. They weren’t the ones who appeared in a great Bollywood movie, I did! “, Said.

Sonakshi made her foray into movies with Dabangg alongside Salman Khan. She reprized her role in the following two iterations of the franchise: Dabangg 2 in 2012 and Dabangg 3 last year. She has also acted in several films, including Rowdy Rathore, Lootera, R … Rajkumar, Noor and Mission Mangal.

Sonakshi was recently seen in a special appearance in Ghoomketu by Pushpendra Nath Mishra, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the title role. We’ll see it below in Bhuj: The Pride of India by Abhishek Dudhaiya, to be released soon on Disney + Hotstar.
