Bollywood actresses are not unknown to body shaming, trolling and constant slamming for their sartorial choices. In the past, many actresses have been body shamed and labelled as ‘flat-chested’ or ‘obese’.
At one end, where Bollywood is producing movies such as Lipstick Under My Burkha and Dangal which gives out a strong message of women empowerment and breaking the age-old beliefs. It is truly heartbreaking to see one Bollywood actress body shaming another actress.
Recently, Kriti Sanon was in the news for body shaming tweet by Hate Story actor, Bhairavi Goswami. Following which, when reporters at a press event of Bareily Ki Barfi asked Kriti for a reaction, she gave it back like a boss and enquired, “Who is Bhairavi Goswami?” Kriti, after being told that Bhairavi appeared in Hate Story, said, “I think, I’m just happy for her. She got a lot of publicity. Now you guys know her name also, so yeah.”
Well, like many beautiful and smart actresses, Kriti Sanon too gave a befitting reply. And brownie points to you gal for that kickass answer!
It all began on July 22, when KRK posted a tweet ridiculing a video clip of Kriti Sanon dancing to the Mubarakan song “Hawa Hawa”.

In a responding tweet, Hate Story actor Bhairavi Goswami tweeted saying, “she is really behaving like a deranged woman. How did she become an actress. No headlight, no bumper. Even college students look better”.
