My life, my face: Shruti Haasan, body-shamed for undergoing plastic surgery, shuts down trolls like a boss

Shruti Haasan's post was in response to her previously-shared set of photos, in which trolls called her "skinny" and asked her to "eat more".

New Delhi: Actress Shruti Haasan, who was recently trolled incessantly for undergoing plastic surgery, shared an empowering post on social media and shut down trolls for criticising and body-shaming her. In a lengthy post, Shruti shared a collage of two of her photos taken three days apart and without mincing words, said, "I'm happy to say this is my life my face and yes, I've had plastic surgery which I'm not ashamed to admit."

The post was in response to her previously-shared set of photos, in which trolls called her "skinny" and asked her to "eat more".

Hours later, Shruti put up a hard-hitting post and said, "So, I decided to post this right after my previous post and I'll tell you why. I'm not one driven by other people's opinions of me but the constant commenting and she's too fat now, she's too thin is so avoidable. These two pictures have been taken three days apart. I'm sure there are women out there who relate to what I'm going to say." 

She further added, "Most often I'm at the mercy of my hormones mentally and physically and over the years I work hard to try and have a healthy relationship with it. It isn't easy. The pain isn't easy, the physical changes aren't easy but what's become easier to me is to share my journey. No one famous or not is in a position to judge another person. Ever. That's just not cool."

Giving an apt reply to the trolls, she continued to say, "I'm happy to say this is my life my face and yes, I've had plastic surgery which I'm not ashamed to admit. Do I promote it? No. Am I against it? No - it's just how I choose to live."

In the end, she concluded by saying that an individual should "learn to accept the changes and the movement of our bodies and minds" and "spread love".

So .... I decided to post this right after my previous post and I’ll tell you why. I’m not one driven by other people’s opinions of me but the constant commenting and she’s too fat now she’s too thin is so avoidable. These two pictures have been taken three days apart. I’m sure there are women out there who relate to what I’m going to say. Most often I’m at the mercy of my hormones mentally and physically and over the years I work hard to try and have a healthy relationship with it. It isn’t easy. The pain isn’t easy the physical changes aren’t easy but what’s become easier to me is to share my journey. No one famous or not is in a position to judge another person. Ever. That’s just not cool. I’m happy to say this is my life my face and yes I’ve had plastic surgery which I’m not ashamed to admit. Do I promote it ? No am I against it ? No - it’s just how I choose to live. The biggest favour we can do for ourselves and others is just be and learn to accept the changes and the movement of our bodies and minds. Spread love and be chill . I’m learning everyday to love me for me just a little more because the greatest love story of my life is with myself and I hope yours is too :)
