"Ek saath sab logo ne aa kar humko bolte the, fat-shamed krna hai. Moti beti hai toh, moti maa moti beti. My mother was very particular I should not face this, toh unka usko handle karne ka tareek alag tha jaise I don't think tab aisa vogue culture thuri tha fat-shaming nai kar skte. Toh mujhe yaad hai Sunday ke Sunday humara weight check karte the vo ki bada ya nai, because log bahut bolte the."

When Kusha Kapila opened up about her sudden weight loss 

Kusha Kapila's sudden weight loss ever since moving to Mumbai left many shocked. While Kusha credited it to her healthy diet and workout, many think that she has used Ozempic. Once, Kusha gave a befitting reply to a fan, who tried to take at the actress' sudden weight loss. She wrote: 

@sonalsacc acha so it's totally assumption. Cool. So without shame and full honesty, it's not ozempic. It's consistent workout and clean eating. Hope that answers your question.
