Kareena Kapoor Khan is one of the most bankable actors in Bollywood. She has aged like fine wine and has become an inspiration to many women. While she had once made waves in the industry because of her ‘size zero transformation,’ the audiences have watched her in all the phases of her life even embracing her post-pregnancy weight. Even though today people are more accepting towards different body sizes when it comes to women, there was a time when the entertainment industry had set beauty standards and even Kareena had to go through a lot of fat-shaming.
Recently a netizen took to the subreddit Bolly Blinds N Gossip to share instances from the actress’ old interviews where she had opened up about being fat-shamed by not only Aditya Chopra but even Saif Ali Khan. From being called chubby and even ‘a heavy girl,’ Kareena didn’t have it easy in the early 2000s. In the screenshots shared from her interviews, she talks about how she was ready to “challenge her genes and stand in a bikini,” when the head honcho of YRF called her ‘quiet a heavy girl.’ ALSO READ: Kareena Kapoor Khan Fulfils Mommy Duties; Makes A ‘School Run’ As Son Taimur Starts His Grade 1!

Well, the 42-year-old actress’ statements have left the netizens in shock as they have always perceived her as beautiful. One wrote, “The Saif one reminded me of my narcissistic, emotionally abusive and manipulative ex.” Another wrote, “The funny thing is she wasn't even fat, she was perfectly healthy. Its just Aditya and many other men from the industry who were obsessed with slim fit physique.” Other one wrote, “He's so fucking gross, I found it bizarre when people were praising him for being in The Romantics documentary. He's not some genius to be revered, he's a creepy weirdo.” ALSO READ: WHAT!
