The actress who rose to fame as Kamolika in Ekta Kapoor’s serial Kasautii Zindagi Kay has yet again shown people why she is a role model for many young women. The actress recently took to Instagram and shared pictures of herself in a turquoise bikini, playing in the pool. Along with the pictures, she penned down a heartfelt body positivity note.

She wrote, "From time unknown, women have been judged ! From how they look,to what they wear & how they behave. The sheer pressure of being picture perfect is something I have defied at every step of the way coz I as a woman have all the right to be myself, wear what I want,do what I want & live my life exactly the way I want! My dignity & self respect is rightfully earned by none other than MYSELF! I don’t need no validation! Our bodies change each passing day & we don’t need to be judged for our shapes & sizes COZ A woman is where life originates from and that is the biggest asset I’ve had the pleasure of owning!"

For the uninitiated, Urvashi had gotten married at the tender age of 16 and embraced motherhood a year later with her twin sons, Sagar and Kshitij. Soon, she parted ways with her husband and single-handedly raised her boys to be well-respected adults. At a time when being a single mother was frowned upon and society had the mentality that a woman needs a man to support her, Urvashi proved everyone wrong by leading a successful personal and professional life.
