She’s an actor. A model. And mom to two lovely children, Nyra and Hans. Sameera Reddy, who has always been curvy, is proud of her body and celebrates all its so-called imperfections. ‘I love my body. I am kind to my body,’ she shared in an honest post over social media, posing in a yellow checked romper paired with a denim jacket.
‘I wasted years worried about what the world thought of me. It took me so long to get here and I am grateful. ‘I have never been more comfortable in front of the camera with my cellulite and curves. ‘Bodies change, and we need to be more understanding and work towards a healthy, happy one,’ she added, asking people to not be so hard on themselves. ‘Work positively on what you have, not what’s expected.’ Sameera’s post has been met with a lot of love from her followers, who have been supporting her through her fitness journey. She started documenting and discussing her weight loss in March 2021 — she wanted to go from 92 kg to 73 kg, which she achieved successfully in less than a year.
The actress, who has been fat-shamed even as she was struggling with post-partum depression, has never refrained from publicly discussing her weight issues. ‘It’s a superficial world and people can be hurtful if you don’t keep up,’ she says. ‘But the key is to be fearless.’
