It Bothered Me: Tara Sutaria Opens Up On Being Called Both Anorexic & Overweight

Not even a year old in Bollywood, and Tara Sutaria has become a rage among fans. The actress is constantly snapped by the paparazzi, and is always creating a buzz with both her stunning looks and alleged link-ups with co-stars. Well, it is not all peaches and roses. Not to forget, just like any other celebrity, even Tara is subjected to scrutiny and is always under the scanner of media and shutterbugs. In a recent interview to a leading entertainment portal, the Marjaavan actress revealed how she was criticised and alternately called both 'anorexic' and 'overweight' by a different set of people.

"People do say hurtful things every now and then. Some people called me anorexic when I did SOTY 2. A little while later, I put on 2-3 kilos and they were like she’s put on weight. That’s something I have come to terms with it. It used to bother me a lot in the beginning", revealed Tara. 

On being criticised for her choices, the actress further shared, "When you perform and you are young, a lot of people don’t take that very kindly. They want to criticise you in a certain way which is very detrimental for your growth. I have been performing since I was 3-4 so that’s quite a few years of being a professional. In that way, some occasions have been annoying where people have said things like, 'Why did she choose to do this?' But I met Karan and then SOTY 2 happened, and my outlook changed.”


Tara revealed that while she used to get bothered by constant comments about her weight, she did not let that affect her focus & she continued to work hard. Isn't that inspiring?

Well, you are beautiful inside-out, Tara. More power to you!

On the work front, the actress took the entire country by storm after her debut performance in Karan Johar's SOTY 2 along with Ananya Panday and Tiger Shroff. Her next movie, Marjavaan, opposite Sidharth Malhotra is slated for release on November 22.
