Despite being labeled as the s*x symbol, Bollywood actress Sameera Reddy has always been the epitome of body positivity. She has spoken openly about body image issues, and has even started her own campaign #ImperfectlyPerfect. Her recent vlog has been a reminder that no matter what your imperfections are, it is important to love your body and be happy with the way it looks!
In 2002, Sameera made her debut in Maine Dil Tujhko Diya opposite Sohail Khan. She soon became a household name after starring in movies like Darna Mana Hai, Musafir, Taxi Number 9211, Race, De Dana Dan and Aakrosh. She was dubbed as the sex symbol due to her glitzy on-screen personas.
When it comes to achieving the sexy look, there was a lot of hard work behind-the-scenes that divas had to go through in order to be as beautiful on-screen. While the casting couch still remains one part of this, many divas have opened up about being asked to get surgery for fuller chests and better buttocks.
In her latest vlog, Sameera Reddy reveals that she once had to subsist on just ‘one’ idli to keep up with the ‘ideal beauty standards’ and remain as attractive on-screen. She also shares how she faced major breakdowns in the past, and cut off all contact with people. She’s now using her position to normalize stretch marks, grey hair and break the “ideal beauty standards.” Watch the video below to know more about Sameera Reddy’s story!
