Her Views On The Role

Sanam Jung also shared her views regarding playing the role of a fat girl and empowering such people in our society. She revealed that it was not easy for her to make the role come to reality. Here is what she stated, “Playing Pyari Mano was quite challenging not only as an actor but also because our industry has very stringent standards of how a woman should look, especially as the lead. No one wants a fat woman as the heroine of the drama.

“Taking up this role was a conscious decision. As an actor, we have some social responsibility to start uncomfortable conversations. Body shaming ails every strata of our society. Sadly, women are being judged all the time for the appearance, particularly weight. They are subject to unkind remarks like ” Kitni moti ho gae ho”. It’s very traumatic emotionally and mentally.

“As a woman too, I feel it’s my responsibility to call out these vain and cosmetic standards of beauty. No one judges a man as harshly for his weight. External appearance is no barometer to know a person’s seerat. Draw a parallel between soorat and seerat.

“Girls as young as in early teens are under so much pressure from parents, peers, society that they are always watching their weight. It’s ingrained in them from childhood “no one will marry you if you become fat”. Major health ramifications too- anorexia, mental health.”
