Huge clap for Zarine Khan for her recent Instagram post with a blast from the past.
Known for her portrayal of Princess Yashodhara in the Salman Khan starrer ‘Veer’ and the sexy Siya Diwan in ‘Hate Story 3,’ the 28-years-old actress shared her pictures from the past when she was ‘big’ and said that she never used to get bothered with people’s comment, as it was her life and her body and she had the right to decide for it.”When I look at these pictures I feel proud of myself today not that I felt any lesser about myself back then. In spite of being so big I never let people’s comments or ideas about me bother me because it is my life and my body and only I have the right to decide what I am gonna do with it.,” she wrote.
“Then one day I decided let me try how it feels to be a little lighter and hence started my weight loss journey. It wasn’t easy at all but every time I looked at the progress in the mirror i got the push to do more. I had lots more energy than before and I was loving every bit of this new person I was transforming into. When I became a part of this industry, I had lost all my weight. In fact I was asked to put on weight for my first film to look the character. Unfortunately I was criticized to no end for my weight but again I never let that get to me,” she added. With this she even said that weight-loss led to stretch marks on her body which she now likes to flaunt as that makes her feel a tigress with stripes.
“How could I?Those people had not seen me like the way I am in these pics here. And for me everything was just an achievement to reach from where I was to where I am.I continued on my fitness journey irrespective because fitness for me is a way of life now. Along with the weight loss came a lot of stretch marks but instead of feeling ashamed of it and trying to hide it, I believe in flaunting it. It makes me feel like a tigress with her stripes.I have come a long way in this journey of fitness and I still have a long way to go. But it is always been only for myself and not because of people shaming me.#Mondaymotivation #saynotobodyshaming #loveyourself,’ she ended.
