Body-shaming is one of the sad realities of the day and one of the celebs who was recently subjected to it was Urvashi Dholakia. The lady who played one of the most famous vamps of Indian TV of Komolika Basu in Kasautii Zindagii Kay was termed as being on the slightly fuller side and it left her miffed. A friend said that to her out of nowhere and Urvashi was kind of distressed hearing it. On her social networking site, she wrote, “I hate the thought of size zero. I love myself just the way I am! Be it healthy or healthier.” (Also Read: Woah! Urvashi Dholakia’s son, Sagar is a star in the making!)

Urvashi who also won Bigg Boss 6 suffered from health issues. She feels it is easy for people to comment on others weight without actually knowing what health complications they must be having. She states, “It might be very easy for someone to tell me that I need to lose weight, but do they know I might be facing some issue? Nobody knows because of subacute intestinal obstruction, I was hospitalized for 15 days immediately after I won Bigg Boss. I was put on a low-fibre diet, which made me gain weight. I would have joined the gym, but then I decided to lose those extra kilos in an organic way, and it took time.” (Also Read: When ‘sautans’ Anita Hassanandani and Urvashi Dholakia reunited- view pic!)

The actress is now 37 and feels a woman’s body changes over time. Urvashi is also against the trend of women being reed-think and says health should be holistic. “Size-zero might be a yardstick for good health for someone, but according to this concept is utter bullshit. I feel healthy without being slim and don’t want to join the rat race of looking thin,” says Urvashi. This is not all. If you thought body-shaming was a recent phenomenon, the actress clarifies that it has been existing since some time. In fact, she was also told that she would be sacked from a show if she did not lose some weight. However, she did not react then as she needed work. The lady says, “To be very frank, I was badly in need of work, that’s why at that time I couldn’t give them a dose of their own medicine.”

On the professional front, Urvashi is going to team up again with Ekta Kapoor for her upcoming show, Chandrakanta on Colors. Her character is that of Irawati, mother of Prince Virendra Vikram Singh and is an antagonist. She was selected as Urvashi is one of TV’s most popular vamps and has tremendous screen presence. The lady will be seen in a royal avatar. Stay tuned to Bollywood Life for more scoop and updates…
