When Aayush Sharma Talked About Wife Arpita Being Body-Shamed: ‘She Is A Constant Target, People Tell Her She Is Dark And Fat’
An old video of actor Aayush Sharma talking about his wife Arpita Khan being constantly judged about her looks has gone viral on social media. This clip dates back to the time when he appeared on a TEDx talk and opened up about his wife being constantly trolled on social media. Aayush mentioned that people tell her skin colour is dark, she is overweight and should dress a certain way. Salman Khan’s brother-in-law asserted he is proud of Arpita for being so comfortable in her own skin.

In the old video, Aayush said, “My wife is constantly trolled for being overweight. She is a constant target, that being a celebrity she shouldn’t be so fat, and she should dress a certain way. And she is dark in colour. Every time her picture comes, people are quick to remind that she is dark in colour. Today, beauty is no longer internal, no one wants to know how beautiful you are as a human being, but people want to see you beautiful externally.”


 

He added, “But I am proud of my wife, because she is comfortable in her own skin. She is proud of who she is and behind closed doors, she tells me, ‘I am not a celebrity, I have done nothing to be a celebrity. I am never going to be in front of the camera, so I am going to be who I am, I am going to live my life the I way I am going to live my life.” ALSO READ: THROWBACK!
