Famous television actress Rupali Ganguly recently opened up about difficulties she faced and how she was body shamed after son Rudransh’s birth. The actress told that she was body shamed by neighboring women who she didn’t even know.
Rupali, who has earlier talked about her health issues, said that she did not lactate enough. She added that she would ‘judge’ herself, thinking that she fell short, and started eating ‘everything’ to produce more breast milk.
The ‘Anupama’ star has to face a lot of difficulties and she felt terrible after that. Body shaming is a bad thing and it not only affect a person physically but also mentally.
While talking to a leading publication, she said,” From 58 kilos when I delivered Rudransh, I went up to 86 kilos. When I would take my child out for a walk, certain neighbouring aunties that I didn’t even know… ‘Arre, tum toh Monisha ho, kitni moti ho gayi ho (You are the actor who plays Monisha, right? You have gained so much weight).’ Who gives anybody a right to judge a mother? Nobody knows the kind of issues that a woman is going through.”
Rupali married businessman Ashwin K Verma in 2013. Their son, Rudransh, was born in 2015.
