Breaking News

Actress Tessa Joseph, who garnered popularity for her portrayal in Mammootty‘s Pattalam, recently shared a strong note on body shaming, revealing how she was called ‘fat’ by the people around her and how society looks girls with ‘judgemental eyes’. Her post reads, “STOP!!! As a child or as a woman, I have never heard anyone say to me, “you look perfect”. I was always been considered “fat” in their judgemental eyes and they would not hesitate to tell me that either. Society has set some rules over what your body should look like- Thin, fair, tall and with curves. Based on this societal conditioning and constant body shaming, most girls I know think they are fat.” Also Read – Mahesh Babu, Prabhas, Dhanush – how many Tollywood stars’ REAL names do you know?

The note further reads, “Another aspect is ageing, which is both natural and inevitable. In this case too, societal conditioning makes ageing appear undesirable and people are encouraged to look young. This is reinforced with images of actors and models who appear to defy ageing and look young. Of course, what is unseen is the huge sums they splurge to maintain their young looks. I think it is high time to say that is perfectly okay to age, it is perfectly okay if your body size evolves naturally. As long as you are happy with your body, nobody has the right to comment on it. I think we as a society should stop making people conscious and ruining their confidence through body shaming and age shaming and should instead show understanding. After all, we are all humans with emotions!” Also Read – Dulquer Salmaan’s Comrade in America co-star Karthika Muraleedharan opens up on her amazing physical transformation journey – watch video
