Unaware of the shortcomings the actress here by expresses her quote on what she felt about the entire situation.

“I was in Australia for the screening of my film Lipstick Under My Burkha at the Darwin International Film Festival, post the festival I decided to spend some time with my friends. I went for a dive in Cairns and casually posted some pictures from there. In some time I saw a few links about body-shaming on my Instagram account, but as someone who has recently stepped into the public spotlight, I honestly didn’t see it coming. Why would anyone have an opinion on how my body should be? I was surprised to see some comments and I felt that as long as someone is healthy and happy, that’s all that matters! I don’t give anyone the right to shame my body. I don’t think I give this right to anyone nor I feel any women deserves to be in spotlight of such attention on what she should be worn and how she should be. Beauty comes in all forms and a one should respect it. I would like to tell all the women out there that you’re perfect just the way you are and you don’t need to change for anyone. Be proud of what you are and flaunt it like a diva!”
