Neha Dhupia On Having Body Image Problems In Her 20s: ‘I Was Always Conscious About My Heavy Bottom’
Neha Dhupia is not just a successful actor but is also a doting mother to two kids. She perfectly balances her personal and professional life and is thus an inspiration for all working mothers. Neha, who was recently featured in Cosmo India's September-October issue, admitted to having body image issues during her teenage days. She spoke about the time she was conscious of her ‘heavy bottom.’ The actress also revealed how her perspective towards things and notions about beauty changed after becoming a mother.

Speaking with Cosmo magazine, the 42-year-old actress recalled, “I had body image issues when I was younger. It is all super-silly, but I was always conscious about my ‘heavy bottom’. And today, I look back at my 20s and I am like, ‘What was I so worried about?.” She added,” One of the most beautiful things about getting older is that you start caring less about what other people think...about their expectations and judgements.” ALSO READ: Neha Dhupia Says It Was 'Physically And Mentally Tough' To Play A Pregnant Cop In ‘A Thursday’: I Was In My Third Trimester So Was Initially Scared-EXCLUSIVE


Furthermore, the Singh Is King actress spilled the beans on getting trolled and mentioned that the first time she decided to not give a damn about what people think about her body was after she gave birth to her daughter Mehr. “I went through postpartum depression, and it was eight difficult months of trying to put up a brave front… And then one day, it just hit me—that it didn’t matter what size I was, it didn’t matter how I looked, I needed to feel good about myself regardless of the number on the weighing scale,” Neha further explained.

Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi took everyone by surprise after they announced their wedding with photos from the mandap on social media. The two got married in an intimate ceremony on May 10, 2018, and welcomed their first child, daughter Mehr, six months after their wedding. Last year, Neha gave birth to a baby boy and named him Guriq Singh.
