Bigg Boss 13's Himanshi Khurana Reveals How Constant Body Shaming Led To Panic Attacks, 'I Have PCOS, Please Surf On The Internet'
BB13 famed Himanshi Khurana, is currently being appreciated for her latest music video, Bazaar. In the conversation with ETimes TV, she revealed she was body shamed and also suffering anxiety attacks in the last month. While social media trolling has been a thing, targeting a specific person; the actress revealed how her team takes care of her and keeps her away from the negative stuff on the social networking site. During this conversation she also revealed suffering with PCOS which leads to fluctuation in her weight. 

Talking about his health issue, she said, “I have been trolled a lot on social media. Before and after Bigg Boss 13. I have been body shamed a lot. I have PCOS, whoever doesn't understand it, please go and surf on the internet. Most of the girls go through it. People who know about it will relate with me. During PCOS, your body weight keeps fluctuating. Sometimes you lose so much weight and sometimes you gain a lot of weight.” 

She also mentioned further how her team keeps her away from the internet after they wrap up for the day and refrain talking about work. The team indulges in playing some games, doing some household chores and remaining positive. She also mentions being trolled for  following and un-following certain social networking accounts. “During lockdown, I was again trolled because of kisi ka gaana aaraha tha..., or making news to follow and unfollow someone. I am saying it's my social media and it's my prerogative who I want to follow or not. It's my personal account. I don't believe in digital relationships. I have been working in the industry for the last 10 years, if someone wants to talk to me, they directly call me or I directly do it. I don't need to follow someone and show it. If I follow only two people from Punjabi industry it doesn't mean the rest of the industry doesn't know me or I don't know them. If someone is coming up with a new song, if they do well, then they troll me and if they mess up, I am still trolled on social media, to hide their mistakes,” she adds. 

Adding further she also mentioned suffering panic attacks last month, she said, “There was a time last month that I started getting panic attacks, then I had to take counselling, I met a psychiatrist. I am mentally very strong and deep down I know that this is show business and I have to take care of myself. It took two weeks of healing to get better. There were people who didn't even know me, but they were still writing nasty things about me and I was very depressed. I thought how can these people be so hateful. How can someone make the other person feel so disgusting that he/she starts hating life. But then I took things in my own stride and started thinking positive, I lost some weight. I felt better. I am trying very hard to lose weight, but people need to understand the other person.” ALSO READ: Miscreants Damage Himanshi Khurana's Car In A Village Near Chandigarh; Asim Riaz's GF Says 'Someone' Wants Her To Stop Working

I don't wish to flaunt abs and I am happy that I am able to shed a few extra kilos. I am ok with people liking me the way I am and I don't feel like changing for anyone. I only have positive people around me.” ALSO READ: Himanshi Khurana Bats For Gender Equality; Asks Why Asim Riaz Is Not Called 'Boyfriend Of Himanshi Khurana' But Fans Have Mixed Feelings
