Sonam Kapoor recently graced Arbaaz Khan's chat show, Pinch, wherein the actress opened up about how she deals with negativity on social media and trolling.
During the interaction, Arbaaz asked Sonam what are the things that pinch her on social media. "Sonam it's pretty obvious that you have built some kind of immunity towards social media trollers but there might be something that still pinches you on social media," said Arbaaz.
To this Sonam said, "I feel like when anybody attacks your family, it's kind of a negative thing. I don't care about myself, my work or whatever, I think family is very sacred to me, I just feel like that can be very hurtful."
"Also, when anybody is bodyshaming someone... I remember, Anushka (Sharma) and Sonakshi (Sinha) went through a lot of body shaming. I find that very mean, because that can make you feel very insecure about yourself especially when you're an actress you have so many people looking at you and judging you about the way you look, about the way your body is, your skin color, whatever.
The mentality needs to change because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And you don't expect to look a certain way and I wish actresses could be real about the way they look and I know till certain age I was called a Giraffe becuase I was too thin and then I gained weight and then I had a hard time with my weight as well.
Sometimes you don't put on weight and then people look at you and say 'Omg itni patli hai, so thin and blah blah blah... khati peeti nahi hai.. especially when you come from a Punjabi family and then they feed you so much and you gain weight and then they say bahut moti ho gayi hai, kaali hai, lambi hai, kaun shaadi karega isse..."
"All these things are not healthy, it's not correct, it's not mentally okay. People go through so many mental health problems, you can't do that to people," concluded Sonam.
