Anjali Anand On Getting Body Shamed For Participating In 'KKK 13': 'Arey Ye Waha Jake Kya Kar Legi?'

Television actress, Anjali Anand is a popular face who is known for her roles in the shows like Kulfi Kumar Bajewala, Dhhai Kilo Prem and many others. She rose to fame with her portrayal of the role of 'Loveleen Gill' in Kulfi Kumar Bajewala. Though she has been missing from TV shows for some time, the actress is quite active on social media. Anjali has once again made headlines after her participation in the stunt-based reality show, Khatron Ke Khiladi 13.

Anjali Anand on facing body shaming

In a recent interview with ETimes TV, Anjali Anand opened up about getting body shamed on a daily basis. The actress is going to return to TV screens after almost five years with Khatron Ke Khiladi 13, but she has also been trolled for her participation in the show. However, the actress never lets the trolls affect her. Talking about the same, she said:

"I don't take social media so seriously now. Earlier it used to affect me a lot and I would give it back to the trolls. In the past few years, I have been focussing on body positivity and feel good about it. On my social media, I hardly post about my work. So, when it was finally out that I am going to be part of Khatron Ke Khiladi, the trolls could not keep quiet."

Reacting to the brutal trolling, Anjali shared that one user even questioned her selection for KKK 13 and compared her with Bharti Singh, who couldn't last for more than one episode. Reacting to the same, the actress mentioned that though she often reads the comments, she just laughs it off. In her words:

"There was one who commented, 'Arre, yeh wahan jaake kya kar legi'. And someone even went to the extent of saying how the makers made Bharti Singh last for more episodes because she was still funny, but I will not last for more than one episode because I don't even know comedy. I keep reading such comments and just laugh it off. I don't feel that a plus-sized woman can't do stunts or adventure activity. I have taken many solo adventurous trips, but at the same time I also feel that I am not answerable to anyone when I am already a part of the show."

Mohit Malik inspired Anjali Anand to participate in Khatron Ke Khiladi 13

Anjali Anand shared that her former co-star, Mohit Malik, who participated in the KKK 12, inspired her to participate in the show this year. She added that she is looking forward to doing the adventurous activities and said:

"If someone like him who has not gone on too many adventure trips can participate, then why can't I? My friends also supported me. I have not been exercising well, but I do try a lot of stunts when I am swimming in the pool. I am looking forward to those high jumps, which will be scary, but it will be worthwhile."
