Aishwarya Rai Bachchan never minces words and she has often given it back to the ones who have crossed with insensitive remarks. Earlier, she spoke about constant criticism over her weight gain and how she dealt with it.
Following her pregnancy, Ash faced a brutal backlash due to her pregnancy weight gain, but she never set unreal beauty standards like many other actresses who hit the gym and leave jaws dropped by shedding all their postpartum weight gain.
In a previous interview, Aishwarya shared that she was just being real and didn't set any unrealistic expectations on the mothers, and she was lauded by many new mommies for being real. The actress seemingly took an indirect dig at the other actresses who hit the gym soon after having the baby.
The actress maintained that science had made remarkable progress and that she could lose weight overnight, but she chose not to and let the weight shed naturally.
Reacting to the brutal backlash around her weight gain, Aishwarya said, "I wasn’t disturbed by it. If people were, well, I guess I hope they enjoyed the drama because I was busy leading a very real life with my baby. I didn’t realise it, but I think the most positive thing that came out of it for me was to have so many women come to me and say, ‘Thank you; you’ve actually gone and given so much confidence to so many of us who always believed that. I wasn’t on some mission to prove a point in this way or that. I was just being real".
Detailing her body transformation following Aaradhya’s birth, Aishwarya, in a 2015 interview, mentioned, “It was natural in my case; that was the natural turn that my body took in terms of whether I gained weight or I had water retention or whatever else that goes with the space. I was comfortable, and that’s why I have been who I have been. I stepped out in public when I could take time out from my baby, and if I did think it was a big deal, I would have been in hiding or would have done something about it".
Lately, several Bollywood mommies like Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor and more, have stunned their fans with stunning transformations.
