On be­ing body-con­fi­dent... Son­akshi Sinha: "For me, be­ing body con­fi­dent means that one has to be con­tent in their skin and not live with the no­tion that be­ing skinny is the only wat to look hot. You a cer­tain could body look type, a cer­tain but what’s way, and be im­por­tant is that you’re com­fort­able with who you are and feel good about your­self.” On the im­por­tance of lov­ing your­self...

SS: “For me, lov­ing your­self is of para­mount im­por­tance! I strongly be­lieve that peo­ple who are con­fi­dent about their phys­i­cal­ity are con­fi­dent oth­er­wise as well, and that’s what mat­ters the most.” On women feel­ing the pres­sure to look a par­tic­u­lar size...

SS: “It can be at­trib­uted to a lot of things, but the fact is that women in gen­eral, and not just in In­dia, feel the so­cial pres­sure to be a cer­tain size and weight. I think it’s this whole idea of peo­ple per­ceiv­ing women, in a cer­tain way, de­pend­ing on their weight and that’s ridicu­lous! The most im­por­tant thing is to love your­self and not get bogged down by what other peo­ple ex­pect of you.” On the big­gest tip to be­ing com­fort­able in your skin...

SS: “I say this to a lot of peo­ple (even at the cost of re­peat­ing my­self!), that the most im­por­tant thing is to value your­self, and that’s my big­gest tip. Noth­ing else mat­ters. If you don’t love your­self, no-one will ap­pre­ci­ate what you look like.” On the im­por­tance of look­ing a cer­tain way in the film in­dus­try...

SS: “Yes, this need does ex­ist in the in­dus­try, but I don’t think it’s nec­es­sar­ily a bad thing. Be­ing ac­tors, we’re con­stantly un­der the scan­ner and there is a re­quire­ment to look good. But we do it be­cause we want to, not be­cause it’s forced on us. It’s a per­sonal choice at the end of the day.”
