Actress Nimrit Kaur Alhuwalia who gained massive popularity for her role in Choti Sarrdaarni opens up on being fat shamed and bullied in school. The Actress also revealed that she didn’t feel skinny enough to be in the modelling space.
Speaking to ETimes, Nimrit said, “I have broad shoulders and my body frame is not petite. And this is something I would sometimes feel weird about because even if I was my thinnest, I wasn’t petite. I would look anorexic. And despite all this, I didn’t feel skinny enough to be in the modelling space.”
The Actress also recalled how she developed the habit of eating all the time in her 12th standard due to the pressure of studies and board exams. She shared that she gained around 23 kgs and was 78kgs at that time. Nimrit shared, “In first year of my Law school I was bullied. I was fat-shamed by the girls in my hostel and batchmates. It was humiliating as a teenager. I was naïve and it played with my mind. I thought I am not pretty enough because I am fat. It built up a lot of complexes in me.”
She also revealed that being born in a punjabi family, she was made to believe that you are supposed to be fair, that’s who punjabi girls are. However, she was dusky and was compared to her other female cousins. “I remember in a family full of fair female cousins, I was compared to them – the duskier girl in the lot,” she said.
