Bigg Boss 15 winner Tejasswi Prakash is currently in a happy space both in her personal and professional life. She won millions of hearts with her stint on the Salman Khan-hosted reality show and post that she is just unstoppable. However, Tejasswi had her fair share of struggles and lows. In fact, she dealt with body-shaming not just after entering the industry but since her teenage days. In a recent interview, the Naagin 6 actress recalled how she was called a ‘hanger’ and body-shamed during her school days.
Speaking with iDiva, Tejasswi revealed that during her school days she was mocked by other kids because of her being extremely thin. They used to call her 'hanger'. The actress was quoted saying, “I used to be extremely skinny in school. Like people used to call me a hanger. I was extra skinny. So when we used to play on our school’s playground then people used to tell me – Hey 5 Rupay ka coin apni pocket mei dal, varna udd jayegi.” ALSO READ: 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’
