Parineeti Chopra Sheds Inhibitions, Slays Body-Shamers in Brand New Photo Shoot
Every time Parineeti Chopra’s name is mentioned, phrases like ‘plus size,’ ‘bubbly and healthy,’ and ‘fat for an actress’ invariably find their way into the conversation. While she’s always dealt with any criticism around her weight with aplomb, she recently became more vocal about her weight loss regimen and championed the cause of a positive body image.
Today, she completes four years in the industry, and had been tweeting that “something exciting” was in store for her fans, with the hashtag #BuiltThatWay. What she finally uploaded is a photo shoot conceptualized by YRF Talent, where the actor looks all kinds of badass (and super fit). She’s posing with weights in some pictures, and in some she’s striking impressive yoga poses. All the posters come with a motivational saying, a la fitspiration blogs, like ‘Stretch. Never surrender’.
She’s also explained her reasons for doing the shoot, but in another tweet explained that she's still a work in progress.
You might want to be called a role model and not a feminist , Parineeti, but with this shoot, you might end up becoming a feminist role model for body image. And we think you ought to try and own that mantle with pride.
