Bigg Boss 14 winner Rubina Dilaik recently took to social media to share a note for 'pseudo fans' who were shaming her for her weight gain. The actress received support from her fans and friends. And now, in a recent chat with Hindustan Times, she opened up about the reason behind calling out haters and also said that it's okay to be on a heavier side.
She shared, "There are times when we need to tell people of their boundaries. I don't react to their emails, and don't even read comments. But when the haters start involving families, you need to... They will tag my mom, father, husband, sisters, even my far-off cousins that tell Rubina she is not working hard. She is looking old, has gained weight. Nobody has given you the right to reach out to them. It doesn't matter to me, but somewhere my family gets bogged down."
She said that she has been dealing with body shaming for a long time. Earlier it used to bother her but now she has realised that she's beautiful the way she is. She also added that she is giving herself time to heal from the after effects of COVID-19. For the uninitiated, she had contracted the virus in May this year.

"Covid took almost everything out of my discipline and the kind of health I had maintained, and the first thing to take the beating is your nails, skin, hair. Even today, I have a tremendous hair fall. But I am recovering. I have not given up. It is a part of life," she said.
The actress also shared a message for everyone and said that it's okay to be on a little heavier side. "Women are beautiful with extra pounds. So why can't we just normalise this thing rather than having a concept of a fixed frame."
