Malayalam actor Nivin Pauly recently reunited with his Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham co-star Grace Antony. In order to celebrate the special occasion, they posed together for a selfie hinting at the two might be seen again in their upcoming project.
Shortly after Grace posted the picture on Instagram, Nivin faced brutal trolls who body-shamed him for his weight gain. Many people showered Nivin with rather nasty comments. Some said Nivin looked like an uncle after he gained weight and some slammed the actor for not staying in shape despite being an artist.
The picture featured Nivin smiling in a fully grown beard while Grace made a pout coupling it with a wink and victory sign. Their chemistry in the picture was quite impeccable and many are excited to see them together on the big screen again.
Nivin has often been body-shamed for his appearance. Back in 2020, Padavettu director Liju Krishna had spoken about Nivin being targeted with negative comments for his for weight gain.
In 2020, Padavettu director Liju Krishna had opened up about Nivin receiving a lot of negative comments for gaining weight. "People greet Nivin and then tell him that he has gained a lot of weight," Liju Jose had shared an incident from their shoot location.
As per the director, Nivin was planning to lose weight for another project but, the actor made the sacrifice for his film on his request to gain weight for his role. He also said that Nivin has been hearing many such comments from the public adding that it is all part of his hard work and effort for this film, reported BollywoodLife.
