Sonakshi Sinha’s weight has been a hot topic of discussion ever since she made her big screen debut opposite Salman Khan in Dabangg. However, she is unfazed by the body-shaming comments made about her.
On Arbaaz Khan’s chat show, Sonakshi read out some nasty remarks made by trolls. When she was called “buffello (sic)” by a troll, she had an epic response. “B-U-F-F-E-L-L-O. Pehle spelling toh seekh le yaar!” she laughed.
Another troll advised Sonakshi to go on a hunger strike so that she would lose weight and get more roles. “Isse zyada roles main kar bhi nahi sakti. Sorry! Bohot roles hai, bohot kaam hai mere paas,” she replied.

The anonymity of social media emboldens trolls, according to Sonakshi. “Earlier, I used to read it and think how do people get themselves to say things like that. Kyunki agar aap kisi ke saamne kuch cheezein nahi bol sakte ho, aapko itni himmat kaise milti hai online bolne ki? Koi aake yeh mujhe saame bol de, main do mukke na de doon usko?” she said.

Sonakshi revealed that even though she lost 30 kgs for Dabangg, she was still being trolled about her weight. “Jab maine Dabangg ki thi, aapne mujhe usse pehle dekha hua tha. I was very, very big. I was unhealthy, unfit and I lost 30 kgs to do your film and still people found words to say about me, my shape and how I looked,” she said.
“Tabhi I used to go in the defensive space. Maine itna effort daala hai, I have reduced so much, they have not seen the half of it. They have not seen the effort that has gone in. They have not seen the blood, sweat and tears that have gone in. Still they are talking, so to hell with it. Main jaisi hoon waisi rahungi! Aapko dekhna hai, aap dekho. Aap ko nahi dekhna hai, aap mat dekho,” the actress added.
