Falguni Peacock Renders An Apology For Her Body-Shaming Comments Post Backlash
Well-known fashion designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock showcased their bridal collection in New Delhi for which Sara Ali Khan made a sizzling ramp debut. However, in an interview with Good Times, Falguni irked one and all with her comments for plus size women as she said, "I won't blatantly tell her to lose weight, but you have enough time and you can work on yourself. It is pretty easy to lose a couple of inches if you want to.” Further, when she was asked as to what advice would she give to a bride who is unable to lose weight, she replied, "Long blouses, more flared lehengas and not fitted- because fitted won't really work when you’re a little big. No deep necks for them maybe more higher."

This snowballed into a controversy and even the video was pulled down. Amber Qureshi, who's the owner of The Plum Tree fashion, a brand that caters to plus size women also called out to the designer on her Instagram page and garnered support from netizens. Eventually, Falguni apologised tagging Amber Qureshi in the comments section. We bring you the comment right here: "To all you beautiful women, I am so so sory if I've inadvertently hurt anyone's feelings. This wasn't my intention at all. Having dealt with body issues all my life (and am still dealing with them) I realise that we should wear what we want and what makes us happy. My sincere apologies @sky.qureshi"
