Nia Sharma is one television actress who has always called a spade a spade and never minced her words while doing so. She recently opened up about the ugly side of the entertainment industry and the ordeals she had to experience. During an interview with a leading daily, she revealed that as a daily soap artist, she often had to fight for her payment. While things have finally become better for Nia now, there are certain problems that she’s still struggling with. One of them is to keep up with the arbitrary beauty standards of our society and deal with the pressure of looking a certain way.

While talking to RJ Siddharth Kannan on his talk show, the actress revealed that she still faces body image issues. While she doesn’t hate her physical appearance, she has insecurities about it.

During the interview, Nia revealed that she starved herself for days to have a flat stomach and it wasn’t healthy at all. She said, “I stopped eating, man. When I say I stopped eating, it’s not even about a diet. I would sleep hungry, I was waking up hungry, I would go to the gym hungry. Hungry bhi nahi, mujhe bhookh bhi nahi lag rahi thi (I would not even feel hungry), because I had lost my appetite.”

According to the Twisted actress, her stomach feels bloated frequently. She said, “I have bloating issues, I have phases…or maybe not.” She added that there might be a few notions in her head that she has to appear ‘skinny’ all the time. But, she realises now that it’s not possible.

Nia shared that it took her a long time, but she has accepted that she cannot have a flat tummy throughout the year. She revealed that this fact still takes a toll on her mental health at times and honestly, it’s breaking our hearts. “It took me years to come to terms with the fact that I cannot have a flat belly 365 days a year. It is not possible, I will eat, I will put water in my body, it will bloat. Mere bas woh issues hai (I have only these issues) and sometimes, I can’t deal with them. I end up crying, I have meltdowns.”

We just wanna say that the actress looks perfect to us just the way she is. Her talent speaks for her and she does not need to be so hard on herself.

Nia, you’re beautiful no matter what and we love you for the amazing actress that you are.
