Sonam said, “I feel like when anybody attacks your family, it’s kind of a negative thing. I don’t care about myself, my work or whatever, I think family is very scared to me, I just feel like that can be very hurtful.”

She said, “The mentality needs to change. At a certain age, she was called giraffe because she was too thin. And then when she started gaining weight they said, ‘bahut patli hai,’ ‘bahut moti ho gayi hai,’ ‘kaali ho gayi hai,’ ‘lambi ho gayi hai, shaadi kaun karega.’ It’s not healthy, it’s not correct. People go through so many mental problem, you can’t do that to people.”
