'No matter what you...': Bhumi Pednekar praises Shehnaaz Gill 'brave' for this reason after being body shamed

Bhumi Pednekar is an actress who has taken on a variety of fascinating roles during her career. In her first picture, she played a plus-sized lady. The actress recently spoke up on social media about being body shamed by trolls and also thanked her Thank You For Coming co-star Shehnaaz Gill for a cause.

Bhumi Pednekar discussed getting body-shamed online in an interview with News18. She said,  “No matter what you do, people will troll. Trolling has become so normal now. I could put up a post during a festival in a so-called ‘fully clothed’ version of myself and people will still troll. During promotions, we went all out looking like the best versions of ourselves." She further mentioned that such remarks were previously isolated to our houses. "Earlier, only family members used to troll you but now it has spread far and wide beyond your home. I’ve developed a thick skin now because I’ve been hearing things like how I would start looking more beautiful if I lose a few kilos, right since my childhood. I was questioned as to why I wear short dresses," she added.

The actress also criticised trolls who use derogatory words towards women in the guise of protecting cultures. She also commended Shehnaaz Gill after reading such remarks. "Shehnaaz is very brave to read through comments but I just can’t. I don’t read anything at all", she said. 

Bhumi was most recently seen in Sudhir Mishra's social drama Afwaah, opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Despite earning positive reviews, the picture did poorly at the box office. She is now preparing to release the comedy flick Thank You For Coming. Dolly Singh, Kusha Kapila, Shehnaaz Gill, and Shibani Bedi feature in the film, which is directed by Karan Boolani and produced by Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor. The film made its international debut at the Toronto International Film Festival this year. On October 6, 2023, it will be released in theatres.
