'Jawan' Fame, Priyamani Recalls Receiving Frequent Body-Shaming Comments, Says, 'I Find Myself Hot'

Priyamani is one of the most popular divas in Tollywood. Renowned for her explicit work in Tamil, Telugu and Malayali films, she is known for her phenomenal acting chops and gorgeous beauty. Recipient of a number of Filmfare awards, she has also done a fair share of Hindi films, such as in Raavan, Chennai Express and more recently the Shah Rukh Khan starrer, Jawan. For the unversed, Priyamani also happens to be the cousin of Bollywood actress, Vidya Balan.

Priyamani hits back at body-shaming comments that she has received

In a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, Priyamani opened up about the frequent body-shaming comments that she has received in her career so far, over her slightly curvy figure. In retrospect, the diva mentioned that she finds herself rather hot and is comfortable in her own figure and skin. She also added that now she doesn’t really bother with what all people have to say about her. Priyamani mentioned:

“I proudly say that I am a 39-year-old very good-looking girl who is very comfortable in her shoes and her body. I find myself hot. If others do or not, that’s absolutely fine. No issues. Earlier, I used to feel why I was being unnecessarily targeted. I have never said it doesn’t bother me. However, I don’t give it much importance. Initially, I used to feel very agitated thinking ‘why me?’ But then I realised, whatever you do, because you are in this line, people will always have something to say, good or bad.”

Priyamani calls out the hypocritic society that tends to body shame women only

In the same interaction, Priyamani put forth her bold stance and called out on the double-standard nature of people. She mentioned that while it is quite easy for someone to body shame a woman, on the other hand, nobody really points out at men, who gain weight after a certain age. In her words:

“When men get older, nobody tells them that they are 50 or 40-year-old uncles. When women hit 30 or 35, they start calling us aunties. But that’s okay because they are not realising, that tomorrow they will also cross this age.”


When Priyamani spoke about her no-kissing policy on-screen

For the unversed, Priyamani is happily married to the love of her life, Mustafa Raj and interestingly, it is for the latter that the actress has chosen a no-kissing policy on-screen. Revealing more on the same, Priyamani, in an earlier interview with New18, had spoken about the same and mentioned that she won't do any on-screen kissing since she is answerable to her husband.
