Aishwarya Rai once faced negativity, body-shaming and judgement, but there never came a point in the actress' life where she was in self-doubt.
Aishwarya Rai who is one of the most beautiful women in the world and Bollywood's most talented actresses, is also been subject of criticism and prejudice.
From post-pregnancy fat to role chopped from movie to Cannes looks she is been always judge for her body and work.
We all know when you r a public figure, you have to look good always, be in shape and maintain beauty no matter what may come. If not, you would face nasty comments on your pictures.
During Aishwarya's pregnancy she faces such nasty comments on her body what grabbed national headlines.
In an interview with CNN-News18, she talked about it at length, "It's not just been post motherhood. Contextually, post motherhood, you are referring to specifically body shaming. Because you are looking at it from that aspect of the body frame changing. I am talking about the reason I was able to handle it because I have faced judgement in my life for so long."
The actress further added, "Articles have often said that 'oh! she has had the fairy tale life.' Yes, I have had a lot of blessings and I'm very grateful for that but my question is, 'On what basis, do you assume?' This again brings that down to judgement. Because of the way you choose to look at something, you decide its cakewalk. People think that if you look a certain way, you won't be judged. But, believe me, irrespective of how you look, everybody faces judgement for something or the other."
However, this never affected her, and despite facing all the negativity, there never came the point in Aishwarya's life wherein she was in self-doubt. "At the end of the day, these are the choices I'm making. Nobody else is dictating or telling me how to be and what to do," she added.
