Host Maya Khan has recently opened up about how it feels to be body-shamed after putting on weight.
Talking about it, Maya Khan got emotional and said that she had seen messages on body shaming, and even heard abusive language. “I had to bear a lot of things, I used to think that how can people be so bad, how can they think like that, how can they have so much hatred.”
“Having breathing issues, acidity, shortness of breath and joblessness, everything goes simultaneously, I am very thankful to TV one and News One who gave me work despite my weight issues,” Maya said.
She further said that people used to ask what has happened to her and mocked her about her weight. “It shattered my confidence and I stopped socializing,” she maintained. Khan further said that designers refused to give her dresses and she was cancelled from the workplace.
The host, however, had to take a break from hosting because of her weight. Now, she has reduced her weight and does motivational speaking about her weight loss journey.
