Not everyone can be like Kareena Kapoor Khan: Sameera Reddy slams trolls for shaming women for their postpartum bodies
‘Race’ actress Sameera Reddy, who made her Bollywood debut with ‘Maine Dil Tujhko Diya’ in 2002, is currently expecting her second child with businessman husband Akshai Varde. Sameera shared several pictures of hers on social media flaunting her baby bump. While most people complimented her radiant look, there were a few who also trolled her for apparently not maintaining her figure.
Sameera gave them all a befitting reply at a recent event in Mumbai. “There are sexy ones like Kareena Kapoor (Khan) who’s come out looking fully hot, and there are people like me who take time (to get back in shape),” she said.
“I want to ask trollers: ‘Was your mom hot, when you came out?’ It’s shameful. Pregnancy is such a natural process. It’s so beautiful. It took me time to (lose weight) with the first baby. Maybe it’ll take me time with the second baby. But what’s most important is to embrace yourself. And to all trolls: ‘Say what you want guys, I think I have a superpower, I’m giving a birth to a baby,'” she added.
The actress, however, is definitely keen on getting back in shape.
Talking about her first pregnancy Sameera further added, “In my first pregnancy, I was very shy and thought about a lot of things but now I feel it’s very different. I remember I used to cover up a lot during the first pregnancy now I’m like bring it on. I can also be hot when I’m pregnant. So it’s just a matter of mindset.”
