Kubbra Sait Recalls Being Bullied For Her Name And Hair; People Called Her ‘Cobra’ And ‘Medusa’: I Didn’t Embrace My Name For Longest Time
Actor Kubbra Sait has scaled great heights with her hard work and impeccable performances. Apart from that, the gorgeous diva often treats her fans with stunning pictures of herself and fans cannot stop admiring her beauty. But, did you know? She wasn’t always admired for her stunning looks. Yes, you read that right!

The actress faced her fair share of bullying as people used to call her Cobra and Medusa, revealed Kubbra in a recent interview. 


Recalling the horrors of her childhood, the 38-year-old actress told ETimes, “My name’s Kubbra, I was called Cobra. My hair was curly, I was called Medusa. I have never allowed anyone to body shame me but I was bullied in school because of the colour of my eyes.”

She continued, “Today I will not meet someone on a date 2 if they haven’t already complimented my eyes on date 1 (Laughs). But the same eyes changed me. I didn’t embrace my name for the longest time. I would have changed it long back if I had a choice. Only when I looked into the meaning of the name (Kubbra means ‘the great one’) did I understand the energy that my name was giving me. How can I not make my life worthwhile?”

She added, “I used to have a fake laugh to be seen and heard. I would be the last one to laugh in a room so that people would notice me and someone pointed that out to me. We don’t realise how much our past memories affect us. I didn’t want these stories to be buried inside. I went through highs and lows and wrote it in a non-linear way so that anyone can read it from anywhere."

Kubbra will soon debut as an author with a book titled, ‘Open Book’ and it is all set to release on June 27, 2022.
