Deepika Singh On Being Trolled For Post-Pregnancy Weight
Deepika said, “I have been trolled a lot on social media especially for my weight gain. After giving birth to my son Soham I was 73 kgs and I had randomly shared a picture of mine without thinking much and it was my birthday, they started writing nasty stuff about me.”
“They did not even think twice that it was my birthday. They started saying ‘you are such a big actress, you should have waited’, ‘now you won’t get any role’, ‘nobody will take her in a lead role’, ‘look at her how bad she is looking’.”
Actress Took Negative Comments Very Seriously
The actress further said that she took the negative comments very seriously, which helped her to go to the gym regularly. She even added that she took the screenshots of all the nasty comments and kept on her phone’s wallpaper.
‘These Nasty Comments Helped Me To Hit The Gym’
She told ETimes TV, “It didn’t matter, if I didn’t sleep in the night, I regularly went to the gym. I took screenshots of all those comments and kept them as a wallpaper on my phone. Whenever I felt lazy these nasty comments helped me to hit the gym. I did cardio a lot and did cycling. I started enjoying working out and I started watching my diet as well. Ultimately, I proved them (the trolls) wrong.”
