Television actress and fitness freak Chhavi Mittal hit back at a netizen who trolled for her looking 'skinny' and penned a strong note on body-shaming.
A troll named Abbas referred to her as a 'skeleton' in the comments section of Chhavi's recent post.
His comment read: "Plz don't mind you look skinny. Look at your hands looking like skeleton. So much dieting, I am a doctor by profession I have 2 daughters. I am also fitness freak but please never recommend your diet to anyone."
Sharing a screenshot of the comment, the 'Ek Chutki Aasman' actress called him out and shared a note on women being body-shamed.
She wrote: "I was quietly going through the comments on my recent videos and there were some nice ones, some not so nice, and some which offered really constructive criticism. Thank you for that! And then there was this sitting there staring me in the face."
Hitting back at him for the comment, she added, "Well, dear "Ab Bas", I just want to say, ab bas. Let's stop women body shaming women. My hands do a lot for my kids and my community. They may look their age (which is 40) or may look more. But one thing they always do is make me look and feel amazing. Also, calling someone "skinny" is as disrespectful as calling them fat."
"Body shaming needs to stop. We need to stop looking at people on the outside and start seeing them from the inside. For the record , these comments don't bother me in the least , but it doesn't mean i should stay quiet , coz they might affect somebody else a lot," Chhavi added on her Instagram story.
