I’ve never felt the need to react because I always believed i was #BiggerThanThem… pun intended.”


Sonakshi begins the video by reading out the comments on social media that target her body. She said, “Trolls. That’s what they call themselves. Those people who just wanna kill your vibe? The people who have all the time to judge others and no work to do! So they say anything. Sometimes we feel angry, hurt or numb but now we just laugh it off because that’s what these people are — a joke.”

She goes on to add, “But then I thought that even after shedding 30 kgs, they are still at it? That’s when I said, to hell with them. Because Sonakshi Sinha is here for a reason. I made it as I was and I have nothing to hide! Not my curves, not my weight, not my image. I am not a number on the scale and that’s what makes me bigger than them…pun intended.”

Several fans of the actor took to the comment section to praise the actress for speaking up.

Meanwhile, on the work front, the actress who was last seen in the film Khandaani Shafakhana will next be seen in the film Dabangg 3. Sonakshi Sinha will be once again reprising the role of Rajjo. The film features Salman Khan and is directed by Prabhu Deva is scheduled to release on December 20.
