Naagin 6’s Tejasswi Prakash On Being Body-Shamed: ‘If Someone Tries To Shame Me And My Body, It Is Not Going To Affect Me’
Bigg Boss 15 winner Tejasswi Prakash is on a roll these days. Post winning Salman Khan-hosted reality show, she bagged Ekta Kapoor’s supernatural show Naagin 6, and needless to say, her hands are full of many exciting projects. Tejasswi is indeed in the best phase of her career and in her personal life too she is quite happy about her relationship with Karan Kundrra. But, before making big in the industry, Tejasswi had her fair share of struggles and rejections. In a recent interview, the actress recalled being body shamed because of 'being too slim.' 

While speaking to Etimes TV, the Swaragini actress explained that body-shaming is not just restricted to people who are overweight, but it also happens with underweight people. She revealed that when she had entered the industry she used to receive negative comments and was ridiculed because of her weight. However, Tejasswi mentioned that she is very confident about herself and that she doesn’t get affected if somebody tries to body shame her.

Tejasswi was quoted as saying, “I’ve always been a woman who has been extremely proud of how my body is or the way I was made by god. That’s how he wanted me to be. If people don’t like it I can’t help it, it is not in my hands to go and correct these things. Because it is very important for women to love themselves. If you don’t love yourself and the way your body is and you keep doing things to yourself, then how do you expect anybody else to love you. So I am of the opinion that I extremely love myself.”

She added, “I am very confident that this is the way I am. If someone tries to shame me, my body is not going to affect me. Because I know who and what I am. It doesn’t affect me and I don’t think it will ever.” ALSO READ: Karan Kundrra To PROPOSE Tejasswi Prakash For Marriage On Valentine's Day, Actor Plans A Big Surprise For His Ladylove On Naagin 6 Sets- EXCLUSIVE
