Shilpa, who gave birth to her son, Viaan in 2012, talked about her body shaming experience while addressing media on the issue. “I can understand that emotion of being judged, especially as an actress and someone who has been synonym with having a good body and being into fitness. The pressure that I had when I had a baby, I didn’t get out of my house for seven months. The pressure that nothing fit me. I remember the first time I got out of my house, five months after my delivery, my husband took me out for lunch. There were few ladies sitting, they laughed. I heard them, ‘she hasn’t still lost her weight’,” said the actress.

The pressure of looking good was so daunting that the 41-yea old actress lost nearly 32 kgs. “It is very daunting. When you’re an actor, you are going to be judged. That’s part and parcel of being a celebrity,” said Shilpa.

The actress also shared her experience of getting back to work post pregnancy. “Nach Baliye was my first outing after pregnancy, eight months after I delivered. I was very scared. Clothes weren’t fitting me, I was size 16, double the size I’ve ever been in my life. When you’re working, that gives you enough inspiration or goal. Some do it for their loved one, some for work, I think you’ve to do it for yourself,” said the actress.
