In the upcoming episode, Sonakshi Sinha has touched a sensitive issue that is close to her heart as well. Sonakshi Sinha, in her recent Instagram post, spoke about how she faced cyber trolling because of her weight. She said that trolls were jobless and hence had all the time to criticize others. She mentioned that the trolling initially affected her but now she is stronger than this. In the upcoming episode, Sonakshi Sinha has urged the participants to come up with a story close to their hearts.

‘Let’s talk about the elephant in the room!

For years I’ve been trolled because of my weight. I’ve never felt the need to react because I always believed i was #BiggerThanThem... pun intended. But on the next episode of @myntrafashionsuperstar I asked the contestants to take to social media to talk about something close to their heart, and I want to lead by example.
Is there something you’ve held back for far too long? Share your #BiggerThanThem story with me and start the conversation! You will not be pushed around because you too are #BiggerThanThem!'

This is not the first time Sonakshi Sinha has spoken about the trolling that has affected her since she joined the industry. Sonakshi Sinha has been body-shamed for long. According to the actress, she lost 30kgs before joining the film industry for her debut film Dabangg. In an interview with Arbaaz Khan, Sonakshi Sinha said that she was an unhealthy and fat person but she worked hard to improve her health and body. According to her, the mean comments initially affected her because she had put so much effort into losing weight and the people were still mean to her. She said that the trolls did not have the strength to come and say anything on face hence they hid behind a fake profile. However, it did not matter to her anymore since she became comfortable in her skin.
