The Family Man 2 star Priyamani gets trolled; netizens call her 'colour', 'fat' and 'pig'
South actress Priyamani got body-shamed on social media. Now, she has reacted to such comments on social media for her colour, body weight and no makeup posts
South actress Priyamani, who was recently seen in The Family Man 2 playing the role of Manoj Bajpayee’s wife in both seasons, has talked about receiving remarks on her body weight and skin colour on social media.
In the conversation with Bollywood Bubble, the actress spoke about how she was body-shamed for her weight and skin colour on social media. Priyamani mentions that the wicked abuse on the Internet ranged from people calling her 'fat', 'black', 'aunty' and some even went to the extent of calling her a 'pig'.
Priyamani said, “Honestly speaking, my weight went up to 65 kilos and I did look bigger than what I am right now. So a lot of people have said, ‘oh, you look fat, you look big.’ Right now people are saying, ‘Why you looking thin, we like you when you were fat.’ I’m like, ‘hello, make up your mind. You like me when I’m fat or you like me when I’m thin?’ Being on the bigger side or being on the smaller side, it is each person to himself. Why do you want to body shame people saying, ‘oh you’re fat, you are looking like a pig or…”
Not just that the actress was targeted for her skin colour, for which the actress also had a befitting reply. She adds, “She’s 'looking black.' I said, ‘Look, what is wrong, even if I am a dark-skinned person, first of all, change your opinion, don’t call anybody black, because black is beautiful.”
People on social media also ended up calling her aunty. Speaking about it she said, “If I post something without makeup, half of them say, ‘Oh with make up you're looking good without make up your looking like an aunty,’ So what! If not today, tomorrow you will also become an aunty. Then somebody said, ‘Oh! you are looking old’.”
Priyamani is a very popular actress in the South film industry. She starred in Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu movies, and also appeared in Mani Ratnam’s Raavan.
