Being overweight comes with a lot of disadvantages. And when you are a kid of a celebrity the problems are just more than what meets the eye. From Alia Bhatt, Sara Ali Khan to Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha, many star children have battled the weight issue. Sonakshi Sinha, the daughter of shotgun Shatrughan Sinha recently revealed some shocking tales from teenage and young days when she was 90 kg plus.

Fatshamed Both By People And Industry

It is a known fact that Sonakshi Sinha had no intention of entering Bollywood and just wanted to pursue a career in the fashion industry. It was Salman Khan who asked Sonakshi to lose weight and offered her a role in “Dabangg.” But during these fashion shows, while the “Lootera” actress wanted to walk on the ramp, she was told to handle the lights because she was overweight.

Even during her school days boys used to bully her a lot and although Sonakshi did give them back with full energy, she was hurt by this attitude. After losing 30 kgs for “Dabangg” Sonakshi became a star but the fat-shaming continued with a renowned filmmaker replacing her just 10 days before the start of the shooting because he wanted a slim and trim girl to play the lead.

During the interview, Sonakshi also revealed how it is not very easy handling the tag of star-kid as there is a lot of pressure on them. The gutsy actress had to face serious struggles including being replaced by leading filmmakers after being almost confirmed for the movies.

But despite all these problems and struggles Sonakshi has managed to grow in the industry on her own terms and successfully carve a niche for her. For everyone battling obesity and overweight Sonakshi Sinha is a big inspiration.
