Actress Mehwish Hayat in a recent talk show highlighted how body shaming others is harmful.
Being a guest on the television show with host Vasay Chaudhry, Hayat was questioned over how she feels the subject of body shaming should be approached, to which she responded that celebrities should be careful about the way they utilise their public platform, and any such baited comment would be also heard by their fans.
Later, Hayat later took to a social media platform and urged everyone to be more responsible and hoped everyone understands this and follows through. “It’s about time we become more aware of our responsibilities and act accordingly,” shared the actress.
Body shaming has become an important topic among celebrities in the past few days. Recently, actress Juggun Kazim talked about being body-shamed and shared how she gained almost 30kg after giving birth to her firstborn.
In an interview with BBC Urdu, Juggun while sharing she gained almost 30 kg after giving birth to her first child, said, “I used to cry secretly in washrooms,” she said. Kamzi shared that she was forced to think and question her decision of giving birth.
She further shared that after giving birth to her youngest daughter recently she received some really mean comments from her co-workers on her body. She highlighted that she wasn’t concerned about her weight gain but people forced her to worry about it. “I purposely walk in dropping posture nowadays so that my chest doesn’t get noticed; no girl should face these circumstances,” she said.
