‘It's important to rise above looks’

Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who has often been body-shamed, said it is important for the audience to rise above looks and delve deeper into an artiste's work.

Sonakshi is all for the fact that one's work speaks for itself. The actress, who walked the ramp at an event in an orange floor-sweeping gown recently, said, "We should tell the audience and honestly that is something I have advocated since the starting of my career. 

"I have always been projecting a very strong body image. Being true to yourself... I have been bodyshamed quite a bit but moving ahead of that because that is what I have always believed in... That it's not how you look but how you do and about how many people you reach out to," she added. 

"I have been answering questions on my weight loss for so long that I have become indifferent to them. There are certain things that seem odd at the moment, but I am kind of used to it," said Sonakshi.
