Karan Jonar, Sonam Kapoor and others come in support of Neha Dhupia, after being fat shamed post pregnancy.
Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia, who got married to actor Angad Bedi in May 2018, gave birth to a baby girl Mehr on November 18. After a short maternity break, Neha returned to work with her television projects as a host and judge. However, recently, a news publication highlighted her weight gain after pregnancy in an article that was distastefully headlined “Neha Dhupia Shocking Weight Gain Post Pregnancy at Femina Stylista West 2019”, which obviously left the actress infuriated.
Now, Neha has never been one to take such things lying down. The 38-year-old actress gives befit reply to publication in her social media post.
She Captioned her Instagram post, “Thank you, next!”, Neha wrote, “I don’t owe anyone an explanation because fat shaming like this doesn’t bother me one bit. But I do want to address this as a larger problem because fat shaming needs to stop for EVERYONE and not just celebs.”
“As a new mom, I want to be fit, healthy and energetic for my daughter. So I work out every day, sometimes twice a day because for me…’Fitness’ is a priority and not ‘fitting into’ society’s standards regarding looks. And I hope in the future people are kinder to each other while making such vapid and vile comments. To quote @Pattonoswalt…’be kind. It’s chaos out there.”

Onir, Karan Johar and actress Sonam Kapoor responded to Neha’s post on Twitter.
The writer and the publication needs basic class in learning the meaning of respect/dignity and priority. Stupid insensitive comment on what is a part of a life giving process. Anyway irrespective of that the comment lacks taste/kindness

Neha! You are an amazing Woman! You walk so many paths with humour…with intelligence and with abandon! It’s never about losing weight it’s always about gaining perspective! And I hope the woman who wrote this has gained some today…. https://t.co/VhlGJtM4Oj
