Kareena Kapoor, who is considered as the ultimate diva of Bollywood industry, introduced the ‘size-zero’ concept in the Indian filmmaking industry but now being skinny is not considered hot anymore since the new lot of actresses like Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Parineeti Chopra and debutante, Alia Bhatt have forced have changed the thinking of B’town with their voluptuous bodies.
Sonakshi, who played lead role opposite to Akshay in the blockbuster film ‘Rowdy Rathore’, was criticized by many for being a bit chubby but the actress remained unnerved with all the noises around her.
Sonakshi used to weigh 90 kilograms but she lost 30 kilograms before she signed Dabangg with Salman Khan in 2010 and now she is pretty happy with her body.
“I work hard to maintain my figure and always try to look better. But I don’t believe in going to an extreme or being stick-thin. Also, if I have been accepted for the way I look, why would I do anything to change it? I’m happy with the way I look,” Sonakshi told HT Café some time ago.
The newbie actress Alia doesn’t find anything wrong in voluptuous body as well.
“I don’t believe in the size- zero fad. Girls should be lean and healthy rather than stick-thin. In fact, I feel boys also don’t like thin girls,” says Alia with a laugh.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh was also contacted by the media and he too insisted that not many out there were happy with the ‘size-zero’ concept.
Adarsh said, “Somewhere down the line it’s definitely working well for these actors and their films. Everyone was not too happy with the size-zero fad. It was an exception. Back in the ’70s, being curvy was considered sexy. Even the sex symbols of the time — Zeenat Aman and Parveen Babi — were not essentially thin or skinny.”
Well, it all happened after Vidya Balan left everyone with her magnificent performance in the film ‘Dirty Picture’, which was released last year on December 10.
The 34-year-old was perhaps the first one who took a stand and rejected the ‘size-zero’ concept by saying that she like doesn’t believe in it.
