Ishq Vishk actor Shenaz Treasurywala opens up abo opens up about body-shaming

Actor turned travel vlogger Shenaz Treasury who made her Bollywood debut with Ishq Vishq recently shared a post on her Instagram profile revealing how she was 'body-shamed' on the sets of her first movie and was asked to lose weight repeatedly. 

The Instagram influencers started her post reasoning why she never puts make up or dop her hair on her travel videos. "I don’t care, I’ll run around in a bikini even if my belly is bloated, because regardless I love my curvy hot body." said Shenaz.

Revealing that she formed a terrible relationship with her body she bared how the director the Shahid Kapoor starrer would always ask her to go on a diet and how that made her slip to depression. " I was always told to lose some weight. Some producers called me “butter ball”. Even when I did Ishq Vishk, the director was always on me to lose weight and go on a diet. He used to tell me I was fat everyday and he had to cut around my belly etc and I was so depressed. Wasn’t a great time for me. "

The actress via her post also shared that she has barely seen her first movie one. The actress finally concluding her post said, "I love my voluptuous body and I feel the sexiest I’ve ever felt in my skin. I wouldn’t trade my hot curves for a skinny frame. And sometimes I have a belly. So what! I’m all woman. "

In my videos you’ll see me without make-up, hair not done and I’m probably sweating. But I don’t care, I’ll run around in a bikini even if my belly is bloated, because regardless I love my curvy hot body. It took me awhile though. As a teenager when I started off as a model and even when I saw my face on huge billboards, I had a terrible relationship with my body. I was always told to lose some weight. Some producers called me “butter ball”. Even when I did Ishq Vishk, the director was always on me to lose weight and go on a diet. He used to tell me I was fat everyday and he had to cut around my belly etc and I was so depressed. Wasn’t a great time for me. You may have watched the movie 40 times, I’ve barely watched it once. It was not a fun time for me. I got compared to the other actress all the time, she was skinny, I was fat. It was all this body shaming. I was young and it hurt. However, gradually as I began developing my personality I realised I’m not just a pretty face, I got lots more to offer and I don’t care to be skinny anymore. I love my voluptuous body and I feel the sexiest I’ve ever felt in my skin. I wouldn’t trade my hot curves for a skinny frame. And sometimes I have a belly. So what! I’m all woman.
