Double Size Actresses of Bollywood I PITARA


Curvy actresses are in vogue. Say goodbye to size zero as curvy actresses take charge in Bollywood. The likes of veteran actresses like Hema Malini, Vyjayanthimala, Asha Parekh are the antithesis of the anorexic look, the so-called size-zero, once a fad in filmdom. But actresses with size 0 have always won the battle against the actresses with heavy bodies. Audience is bored of Bollywood’s obsession with size 0. That is the reason why actress with voluptuous bodies are accepted & ruling in Bollywood.Looks like B- Town is drawing inspiration from the south film industry. Now actresses with curvy bodies are enjoying the adulation more than the so-called -size 0 actresses. The game changers have, by the sheer craft of their acting, managed to turn any perceived disadvantages of their figures into cinematic assets. So now size does not matter The list also includes successful names like Vidya Balan and Parineeti Chopra, who happily flaunt their curvaceousness and rule the roost.

Sonakshi Sinha- Sonakshi was massively overweight—104 kilos to be precise—before signing her first film but Salman’s trainer helped her shed those extra kilos & she became Salman’s heroine in her debut “Dabang”. Despite the success of her film “Dabang” film makers couldn’t find a perfect hero who would not only match her stature but also be at par with her physical appearance . To everyone’s surprise Rajkumar Santoshi casted one of the most fit & lean actors of the industry- Shahid Kapoor opposite Sonakshi Sinha. Sonakshi’s charisma worked & the film became a blockbuster hit. With her constant hits she proved that talent can make its way without having to be a certain size. However, Sonakshi has managed to prove her acting prowess in the industry that nobody can question her credibility but each time she wears jeans & miniskirts it looks like each & every part of her body is dying of suffocation. May be Sonakshi can set an example for all those actresses who survive on juice & uncle chips & are busy maintaining their figures rather than improving their acting skills.

Zarine Khan – Zarine Khan was Salman Khan’s discovery. When she entered Bollywood, her first film Veer did not do well at the silver screen. Even her weight drew a lot of criticism. However, blame it on her physique that she seemed apt for South Indian Film Industry. Despite her massive physique & expression less face Zarine has some blockbuster films to her credit, looks like there is a revolutionary change as far as audience choice is considered. Zarine who is often seen hiding her fats in stylish saries shocked everyone with her well toned body in Hate Story3. Although her sex appeal bought her some brownie points but till date film makers are unsure whether they should in cash on her body or no! Despite her successful run in the industry, she has a couple of projects like Aksar 2, Nonsense to her kitty .

Richa Chadha- Richa Chadha has achieved an important milestone in Bollywood despite her heavy body. Looking at her character choices, she has always believed in essaying “Character Roles” in films like ” Gangs Of Wasseypur”, “Fukrey”, “Masaan” & many more where she was a solo heroine with a pivotal roles in each & every film. Till the time Richa sticks to acting, she seems to entice the audience with her talent but the moment she plays roles which requires her to expose her legs & body it is that time when she loses all her charm & her desperate side gets exposed. But if Richa wants to survive in the industy, she has to resort into such “exposing” practices. Anyways no one can predict what audience wants.

Huma Qureshi- Huma Quershi’s glamour is totally dependent on her size. If she is in a mood then she will sometimes expose that to in installments. Even when she is playing bold roles, she doesn’t leave her clothes, maybe that’s why she has refused film offers which demand her to expose. Huma Quershi has never considered her size a minus or negative point. Infact she has flaunted her curves & made them her USP.

Hansika Motwani- Hansika Motwani made her debut with Himesh Reshammiya ‘s song ” Tera Suroor ” but her baby fat proved to be a drawback & she couldn’t make it big in Bollywood which is why she did a couple of flop films then later shifted her interested to South Indian film Industry. She gained popularity in South with her films which are still doing well. Despite the changing trend of Bollywood if Hansika still fails to get roles in Hindi film industry then it proves that “size is the only criteria that matters in Bollywood”.

Parineeti Chopra – If you have Yash Raj by your side, then a glorifying Bollywood career is guaranteed. In fact Parineeti Chopra has her beautiful smile to her advantage. She was pretty much successful in diverting the attention from her weight to her smile in films like Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl , Ishaqzaade, Shudh Desi Romance & Hasee Toh Phasee but films like Daawat E Ishq & Kill Dil proved that having a beautiful smile is not enough. That’s why, she took help, joined gym & lost all those extra kgs but despite her weight loss she doesn’t have any film in her hand. Was her chubby cheeks her USP? what do you think?

Bhumi Pednekar- What makes a good Bollywood debut? A glamorous, big-banner movie with a handful of song-and dance numbers thrown in, a fair number of designer costume changes and ample opportunities to show off the midriff and a lissome frame? Not for Bhumi Pednekar The young woman signed up for a role that demanded she bulk up–12 kgs to be precise & that’s how she got the role of a heroine in her film ” Dum Laga Ke Haisha Film was successful. What could be a better proof that Bhumi who was instrumental in bringing a change in audience mindset in regards to her appearance carved her name on the trophy of National Award for Best Actress. Although the audience went gaga over her weight in the film but Bhumi wanted to lose her fat as soon as possible. Audience can see her revamped avatar in her next film ” Manmarziyan”

Sunny Leone- What does Sunny Leone’s growing graph in Bollywood reflect? Audience have changed their perception. Now if they are spending their money to watch an actress, they want her to have an attractively curved shape body rather than those who are killing themselves with dieting. There is no doubt that Sunny Leone is a proud owner of a beautiful body which is perfectly designed to flaunt a sexy pair of bikini. Irrespective of whatever she wears, she looks stunning. Even if she appears to look over weight on screen, it is unfair to stop her from exposing. Thanks to her assets which never let her down!

Vidhya Balan – How can we not talk about Vidya Balan! After playing roles of an introvert woman in may films, her portrayal in Dirty Picture shocked everyone. It was when Vidya Balan first came out of her shell, the audience discovered certain attraction in obesity. Vidya who blew the screen as Silk Smitha not only created ripples for her acting but also attracted the audience with her brave skin show. It was all because of her that the film became a hit. Not only Balan but also Preity Zinta, Nagma have successfully made a mark in the industry despite being on the heavy side. Seems like Bollywood & audience are bored of size 0 trend, now if an actress is wise & talented then her size doesn’t even matter.
