Actress Priyamani played the role of Manoj Bajpayee’s on-screen wife in the second season of ‘The Family Man’. Priyamani along with the whole cast of ‘The Family Man’ has been receiving massive appreciation from the audience. However, along with love from the audience, the actress has been dealing with the flip side of being in the limelight. Therefore, she has opened up on how she has been receiving hate comments about her weight on social media.
In the interview with Bollywood Bubble, she opened about body shaming and the issue of colorism. She said “Honestly speaking, my weight went up to 65 kilos and I did look bigger than what I am right now. So a lot of people have said, ‘Oh, you look fat, you look big.’ Right now people are saying, ‘Why you looking thin, we like you when you were fat.’ I’m like, ‘Hello, make up your mind. You like me when I’m fat or you like me when I’m thin?’ Being on the bigger side or being on the smaller side, it is each person to himself.” She further reveals about being called “aunty” and “black” on social media.
Priyamani has worked in many film industries in India. She made her Bollywood debut with Mani Ratnam’s movie Ravan. She will be seen in Ajay Devgn’s Maidaan, next. Priyamani received the National Film Award for best actress for the movie “Paruthiveeran” in 2007.
