Manjima Mohan BREAKS SILENCE On Being Fat-Shamed By Attendees At Her Wedding With Gautham Karthik: ‘I Am Comfortable With My Body'
Actress Manjima Mohan is a popular name in the Tamil film industry. She rose to prominence with her brilliant performance in Gautham Vasudev Menon's Acham Enbathu Madamaiyada. On the personal front, Manjima recently got married to her longtime boyfriend Gautham Karthik in Chennai in an intimate ceremony. Surprisingly, the actress was fat-shamed by the guests at her own marriage. Shocked right?  Manjima made this shocking revelation in a recent interview and mentioned she has not learned to remain unaffected by negative criticism.

Speaking with India Today, the newly-wed actress revealed that she no longer gets affected by trolling. She added earlier she used but now she has become more comfortable with her body. Manjima Mohan was quoted as saying, “In fact, even at our wedding, a few people commented about it. Earlier, it used to, but now I am comfortable with my body and I know that I can lose weight when I want to. I am into fitness and I am happy with myself. When there is a professional commitment which requires me to lose weight, I’ll definitely do it; I’m not sure why it should affect others.”


Manjima and Gautham tied the knot on November 28 in a simple traditional ceremony with just family and close industry friends in attendance. Revealing why the couple opted for a simple wedding, Manjima explained, “Marriage wasn’t on our minds though we knew we would at some point. Our families told us that we’d been dating for three years, so it was time to settle down. I visited Green Meadows (ECR) for director Gautham Menon’s birthday party earlier this year and I loved the space. I got a wedding planner from Kerala [Vue Wedding planners] and told them that we wanted a simple wedding where we would know all the guests. And yes, the food had to be really good and Green Meadows has amazing food!” 

Gautham and Manjima’s love bloomed on the sets of their film Devarattam. After a year, the couple realized it was more than friendship between them and thus found love in each other.
