South Indian couple, Manjima Mohan and Gautham Karthik are finally married, and their fans are beaming with happiness. While many fans commented with best wishes for the newlyweds, some body-shamed Manjima.

The actress has been fat-shamed by people on social media platforms and some pass insensitive remarks in person as well. When asked if that affects her, she replied, "It doesn’t anymore,” she said candidly.

In an interview, Manjima revealed that she was fat-shamed at her wedding. She added, "In fact, even at our wedding, a few people commented about it. Earlier, it used to, but now I am comfortable with my body and I know that I can lose weight when I want to. I am into fitness and I am happy with myself. When there is a professional commitment that requires me to lose weight, I’ll definitely do it; I’m not sure why it should affect others.” Manjima also admitted that she is into fitness and can work on her body to get fit if it’s for a professional commitment. “I’m not sure why it should affect others,” she said.

For the unversed, Manjima and Gautham had first worked together on the film, Devarattam, but they did not make an instant connection then. However, a year later, love blossomed between the two as they fell for one another. Manjima and Gautham have been dating for the last two years, and now, the couple has dropped the first-ever pictures from their whimsical wedding.
