Body positivity is no foreign concept and while size zero is what prevails if we go by the Indian entertainment industry's standards, Vahbiz Dorabjee has been selective about the work that has come her way. She has been a preacher of body positivity since always and she has managed to have a lot an impact upon her fans with her ever so undying spirit and of course, her approach to life, body, and a lot of other things for that matter. Vahibiz got talking about body positivity, stereotypes, and more and here is what she has to say!

The actress, who has in her break been working on herself shares, "Skinny doesn't necessarily mean healthy. Your frame is not necessarily in your control but what goes inside definitely is. There was a time when I had tried a lot and my only goal was to lose weight but over time, I learned that acceptance is most important. I accepted myself the way I am and realized that being fit is most important.  In recent times, I have made sure that I am giving my body the time it needs by working out properly and maintaining a healthy diet.'

The actress, while speaking about the stereotypes that come to her way, shares, 'I have always been confident about the person who I see in the mirror but sometimes I wonder why our industry typecasts so easily?  If you're on the heavier side, you're written off as a protagonist, or the story of the lead has to be about a plump woman feeling insecure about her bodyweight & trying to please people?  When a powerhouse talent like Vidya Balan has been quoted saying that she's a well-endowed woman, can do a film like Tumhari Sulu, Kahaani, why does television only considers you fit to play a sidekick. This mindset needs to change! The scripts of those films could have had a size zero actress or Vidya Balan and that wouldn't have changed the story.  That's the beauty of casting an actor as its talent that will take you places!'
