- Parineeti stepped out for Namaste England promotions in a blue dress
- She was trolled for appearing to be uncomfortable
- Rude comments were posted on photos on Instagram
Parineeti Chopra recently made an appearance for Namaste England promotions with Arjun Kapoor in Mumbai, photos of which have been shared on social media by fan clubs and as is the case with the Internet, Parineeti was trolled for her outfit, which was seen as "hideous". Those who spotted Parineeti's photos from the photoshoot trolled the actress for appearing to be uncomfortable as she stepped out to meet the paparazzi. "Dude, seriously why wear something when you are so uncomfortable in it? All in the name of fashion," read a comment on a photo of Parineeti shared on fan clubs. The 29-year-old actress opted for a sky-blue off-shoulder button-down dress with asymmetric hem.
In some of the photos and videos shared from the photoshoot, a visibly uneasy Parineeti can be seen constantly struggling to keep her hair in shape and adjusting her dress before posing. "Why wear clothes you are not comfortable wearing!" said a user on an Instagram photo while another comment read: "I use to admire Parineeti so much for her confidence and not being camera shy. And now after her weight loss, she has become so conscious about herself and always uncomfortable in what she is wearing."
Some also posted rude comments about Parineeti's outfit, reviewing it as "tight": "The dress does nothing for her. She looks tacky and I mean just look at the dress? It doesn't even fit well," said a user.
Parineeti Chopra, who shared about her fat-to-fit transformation in 2016, is not new to the concept of body-shaming. Last year, she opened up about dealing with body-image issues and mentioned how she was once slammed for not fitting into Bollywood's definition of slim: "I was constantly made fun of, but the person I was, I generously laughed with them. Today, many people ask me what triggered the weight loss, did I give in to the "Bollywood pressure"? To that I say - thank god I became an actor and had that pressure," she wrote in an Instagram post. After back-to-back flops in 2014, Parineeti went on a sabbatical for a year when she refashioned herself through her Built That Way campaign.
BEFORE .. All my life, I have struggled with how I look, how I feel, and how people looked at me. I was constantly made fun of, but the person I was, I generously laughed with them. Today, many people ask me what triggered the weight loss, did I give in to the "bollywood pressure"? To that I say - thank god I became an actor and had that pressure! I am able to achieve what I couldn't achieve otherwise. I feel more confident, I feel at peace, and I feel proud! Girls and women meet me all around the world, at airports, events, on the street; they hold my hand, hug me, and tell me their struggles and how I changed their lives. They show me their wallpapers, their wallets, and its all pictures of me!! They look at those pictures and want to make that change in their own lives. They look at my Built That Way campaign and have stuck it to their walls. I have seen women tear up and tell me I changed their life. Post delivery weight, teenage obesity, they are fighting it, and I am their inspiration. As an actor, There is no bigger achievement for me. I am glad to be a part of your life in this way. So thank you everyone. Thank You for making me feel loved. Like I always say - if I could do it. So can you. And I am always there for all of you .... Lots of love....
