Mumbai: Parineeti Chopra has been in the news for having lost oodles of weight, but the actress says she is not in any way endorsing the idea of being thin. Instead, she feels that her trim figure is about endorsing fitness.
Ever since she stepped into the film industry, Parineeti was targeted for having a fuller figure. Did she decide to lose weight because of the brickbats?
“That (criticism) is absolutely bizarre. Being thin is a different thing, I wanted to have better stamina and control over my body,” the actress said here on the red carpet of the Stardust Awards.
“I am not endorsing being thin, I am endorsing being your fittest self,” she added.
She is now happy that “results are showing”.
“It’s good because ever since I’ve become an actress people used to talk about my weight in a different way. I wanted to work on my body and I got six to eight months to work on it,” the 27-year-old said.
“I am glad the results are showing,” she added.
