I was always been considered “fat”, Mammoottys heroine pens an emotional note!

Actress Tessa Joseph, who shot to fame with her debut movie Pattalam, acting alongside Mammootty, recently penned a thought-provoking note on body shaming. Sharing her experience on how she was always called "fat" by the people around her, the actress wrote on how society looks at girls with "judgemental eyes".

Tessa's Instgaram post read:

As a child or as a woman, I have never heard anyone say to me, “you look perfect". I was always been considered “fat” in their judgemental eyes and they would not hesitate to tell me that either.

Society has set some rules over what your body should look like- Thin, fair, tall and with curves.

Based on this societal conditioning and constant body shaming, most girls I know think they are fat.


Another aspect is ageing, which is both natural and inevitable. In this case too, societal conditioning makes ageing appear undesirable and people are encouraged to look young. This is reinforced with images of actors and models who appear to defy ageing and look young. Of course, what is unseen is the huge sums they splurge to maintain their young looks. I think it is high time to say that is perfectly okay to age, it is perfectly okay if your body size evolves naturally.

As long as you are happy with your body, nobody has the right to comment on it. I think we as a society should stop making people conscious and ruining their confidence through body shaming and age shaming and should instead show understanding. After all, we are all humans with emotions!"
