Kriti Sanon recalls being shamed about her nose and smile 

People in showbiz often face toxic and insensitive remarks about their body and facial features. Actress Kriti Sanon's latest interview gives an example of how people can look past an actor's talent and achievements to point out some trivial details about their body.

Recalling the times when she was body shamed, Kriti told Bollywood Bubble, "There had been times when I was told to line my lips to (make it) look fuller. It didn’t make sense to me. I did try it once (she laughs). I was also told that my nostrils flare up a little bit when I smile. So, yes there will be criticism from everywhere. When I smile or laugh, sometimes they do but that’s normal na. I am not a plastic doll."

The actress further added, "People told me ‘You have gummy smile’. That I am born with, I can’t do anything about it. These are little little things that people don’t say it directly ki ‘yeh change karo (change this)’. I feel like those things everyone hears. Someone was telling me now it’s not the pressure, but I think the pressure is increasing with all these Instagram filters and everything coming, everyone wants to be perfect all the time. So, I have gone through that, heard things. Someone asked me to make my waist a little more in. Sometimes random people also say things. You have to make sure that you are not listening to just everybody."

Talking about the work aspect, Kriti was last seen in the film 'Hum Do Humare Do' and she has about half a dozen interesting projects lined up under production. These include 'Bhediya', 'Bachchan Pandey', 'Adipurush' and few more.
