Divyanka Tripathi, famed for her role in the beloved television series ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’, has remained a prominent figure in the Indian television landscape for several years.

Despite her widespread acclaim, Divyanka has encountered her fair share of negativity, particularly online, where she has been targeted by body shamers. In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Divyanka candidly discussed the ongoing criticism she faces regarding her physique and how she navigates through it.

Addressing the issue of body shaming, Divyanka shared her personal experiences, remarking, “This is a recurring aspect of my life. Body shaming is a constant struggle for me due to my specific body type.”

She elaborated on how her pear-shaped body often leads to perceived disproportion between her upper and lower structures, resulting in unwarranted remarks. “Even when I am at my fittest, my lower half may appear larger, prompting people to assume I am overweight. This is something I encounter consistently,” she explained.

Furthermore, Divyanka emphasizes the importance of her fitness routine not only for maintaining physical health but also for her mental well-being. She emphasized, “There was a period when I was very thin, and then people commented, ‘You don’t look good now, you’ve become too thin. Chubby cheeks suited you better.’ Now that I am like this, they say, ‘Oh, your weight isn’t decreasing.’ I want to say, ‘Relax, folks. I prioritize fitness now. I exercise daily. It brings me joy. It keeps me energized.'”

Divyanka has even chosen to forgo the use of weighing scales and takes proactive measures to block individuals who engage in body shaming. She stated, “I no longer step on the scale. I block those who body shame me. I don’t even think twice about it.”

Looking forward, Divyanka Tripathi is gearing up to make her return to the screen in the upcoming SonyLIV series ‘Adrishyam – The Invisible Heroes,’ where she will star alongside Eijaz Khan.
