New Delhi: Priyamani, a well-known actress of South Industry, has dominated the hearts of people these days by becoming the wife of ‘Srikant Tiwari’ i.e. Manoj Bajpayee in the web series ‘The Family Man 2’. People are going crazy about her beauty. But do you know that Priyamani had to be a victim of body shaming for her complexion and weight? She has expressed her pain on this matter.
Worked in many industries
Priyamani has done a lot of work in the Hindi film industry along with Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. For the past several years, she has been a favourite of people based on her strong acting. But now in an interview given to Bollywood Bubble, she has spoken openly on body shaming and colourism.
Things heard on weight
‘The Family Man 2’ actress Priyamani has been trolled a lot for her dark skin tone. She told that people made fun of her on social media. She told, ‘I was 65 kg and I used to look more than what I see now. So many people used to say that you look fat. You look great Today people are saying why are you looking thin? We used to like you the way you looked before.’
To this Priyamani replied very intelligently and said, ‘Hello, change your thinking and stick to one thing. You liked me when I was fat or do you like me now when I am thin? What difference does it make to you and who gave the right to body-shame a person?’
People said ‘black’, got this answer
Along with this, Priyamani says that she has heard many taunts about skin tone. She said that people used to say that why do I look black? Your face is white, but why are your legs black? I used to think that what has happened to people, even if I am a dark skin person then I do not believe in being fair, I think my complexion is wheatish. If I am a dark skin person then change your thinking. Don’t call anyone black, because a black person is beautiful. Lord Krishna was also black, he was beautiful.
Appeared in these Bollywood movies
Talking about Priyamani’s work in Bollywood, she appeared in a Hindi film for the first time in Mani Ratnam’s film ‘Raavan’. After this ‘Rakt Charitra 2’, also appeared in ‘Chennai Express’.
