Actress Shilpa Shetty revealed that she was body shamed by people post pregnancy. Kareena Kapoor Khan had also shared her feelings when she spotted a website’s report regarding her weight gain after delivery.

Shilpa said that she understands that emotion of being judged, especially as an actress  who has been synonym with having a good, fit body.

“The pressure that I had when I had a baby, I didn’t get out of my house for seven months.The pressure that nothing fit me. I remember the first time I got out of my house, five months after my delivery, my husband took me out for lunch.  There were few ladies sitting, they laughed. I heard them say ‘she hasn’t still lost her weight.’’ she added.

Shilpa said that that’s the day when she realized that people are judging her looks and decided to reduce her weight. The actress had lost 32 kilograms post that.

“When you’re working, that gives you enough inspiration or goal. Some do it for their loved one, some for work, I think you’ve to do it for yourself,” Shilpa added while she was speaking at the launch of the ‘Shilpa Shetty Wellness Series’, her new health and wellness initiative.

The 41 year old actress is married to Raj Kundra, a businessman and gave birth to her son Viaan in 2012.
