Championing body positivity, Kabir Singh fame Vanita Kharat, recently bared it all for a calendar photo shoot. The actress posed nude with a kite strategically placed in front of her and took the internet by the storm.
Taking it to her social media account, Vanita captioned her post, ‘"I am proud of my talent, my passion, my confidence, I am proud of my body... because I am ME...!!! Let's get together to join this Body Positivity Movement."
The actress recently revealed that she received positive responses from followers, industry colleagues and her loved ones for this shoot. Speaking to a leading daily, she said,” “My friends, both from the industry and otherwise, and even people whom I don’t know seem to have loved it. They called me with compliments. Some confessed that they felt good about themselves after seeing the picture and some are going to put it up on their wall.” She spoke about those who dissed the shoot as well. “Of course, there have been detractors too. Some questioned my motive behind shooting in the buff and the only thing I have to tell them is that this is the form we are born in, so what’s vulgar about it? Many wondered the reason for the kite. To me, a kite that scales lofty skies, signifies you want to fly high and have dreams,” Vanita continued.
When asked if she has faced any discrimination on basis of her looks, the actress said, “I can’t speak for others but I get offers to play a mom, aunt, or maid. But that’s a problem with the industry. Body positivity movement and industry requirements should not be confused.”
