Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri, who was last seen in horror film Amavas, is trending on the internet today for all the inspirational reasons today. The actress who has dealt with body shaming in the recent past, says living life in the public eye can be very difficult and that she is working towards weight loss by making healthy choices.
The 39-year-old actress has opened up on body shaming in an Instagram post in which she has shared two photographs of herself.
"Living life in the public eye can be very difficult sometimes. As much as it is a blessing, it also comes with its downside. Over the last two years, I've gained weight," she wrote.
Describing the pictures, the "Rockstar" actress added: "On the left I weighed 178 lbs (80 kg) and on the right, I was 129 (58 kg). I have since lost 20 lbs (9kgs) through making lifestyle changes. If I can do it, so can you."
Nargis Fakhri has urged everyone to "nurture mind, body, and soul with positive thoughts and healthy choices".
"I'm going to bring you on this journey of becoming the best version of myself again, and I want you to join me on this journey too," she said.
Nargis Fakhri took a three-year hiatus after Azhar and came back to celluloid with a horror film Amavas. This sabbatical was dubbed as a maternity leave by a website. According to a report that was nowhere close to reality, suggested that Nargis Fakhri is pregnant with her boyfriend Matt Alonzo. The report also quoted that while promoting her film Amavas, she kept taking breaks due to nausea caused by pregnancy. The source also said that she was cranky and behaved oddly in front of everyone.
Nargis Fakhri came across the news article written about her and took to Twitter to slam the website. She wrote, “Take this down @TheLive_Mirror your reporter published lies & not only that he has also body shamed a person that may actually be suffering from an illness. Get your facts right before u publish.”
