The Dishoom star, Parineeti Chopra recently uploaded a video on twitter alongside the 23-year-old actress, Alia Bhatt. In the video, Parineeti wished her friend a very happy birthday. All hell broke loose when she advised him to “eat less and get thin.”
Fat shaming is a major issue. We definitely expect victims of it, to be a little sensitive if they’ve successfully managed to transform themselves and turn into gigantic icon.

Alia Bhatt, who is accompanying the starlet on their ‘Dream Tour’ seemed shocked as she responded, “Poor thing, no.”
Parineeti often puts up pictures of her stating how tough her transformation journey was:
‘BEFORE .. All my life, I have struggled with how I look, how I feel, and how people looked at me. I was constantly made fun of, but the person I was, I generously laughed with them. Today, many people ask me what triggered the weight loss, did I give in to the “bollywood pressure”? To that I say – thank god I became an actor and had that pressure! I am able to achieve what I couldn’t achieve otherwise. I feel more confident, I feel at peace, and I feel proud! Girls and women meet me all around the world, at airports, events, on the street; they hold my hand, hug me, and tell me their struggles and how I changed their lives. They show me their wallpapers, their wallets, and its all pictures of me!! They look at those pictures and want to make that change in their own lives. They look at my Built That Way campaign and have stuck it to their walls. I have seen women tear up and tell me I changed their life. Post delivery weight, teenage obesity, they are fighting it, and I am their inspiration. As an actor, There is no bigger achievement for me. I am glad to be a part of your life in this way. So thank you everyone. Thank You for making me feel loved. Like I always say – if I could do it. So can you. And I am always there for all of you …. Lots of love….’
Needless to say, Parineeti fan’s are disappointed in her. People on twitter highlighted the actress’s remark and mocked her for being a victim of it.

Parineeti has become so obnoxious, it's obvious she's obsessed with body image. Cancelled.
