Neha Dhupia never shied away from speaking her mind and breaking stereotypes. She is a working mother to her daughter Mehr Dhupia Bedi and son Gurik Singh and a loving wife to her husband Angad Bedi. She recently participated in the September-October issue of Cosmo India and talked about body image issues during her 20s.

“I had body image issues when I was younger. It’s all super-silly, but I was always conscious of my ‘heavy bottom.’ And today, I look back on my 20s and I’m like ‘What was I so worried about?’,” Neha told the magazine. “One of the most beautiful things about growing up is that you start to care less about what other people think … about their expectations and decisions,” she said.

She made her Bollywood debut in 2003 with Qayamat: City Under Threat, after which her bold role in Julie brought her fame. She became one of the sex sirens of the industry and since then she has been vocal about the issues that women face in their daily lives.

Neha is no stranger to online trolls and has taken her share of body shaming over her pregnancy weight gain. However, Neha is not distracted by the negativity and continues to live her life to the fullest.

Talking about being a victim of trolls, Neha said, “The first time after I gave birth to my daughter, I decided not to pay attention to what people said about my body. I was suffering from postpartum depression. passed, and it was eight years. Tough months of trying to build a brave front… and then one day, it hit me – that no matter what size I was, no matter what I What I needed to feel good about myself was the number on the weighing scale.”

For the uninitiated, Neha has also been a part of Freedom to Feed, which focuses on providing new mothers the freedom to feed their babies without judgment in public. Neha started the initiative in 2019, a year after the birth of her first child, Mehr Dhupia Bedi.
