Lahore (Monitoring Desk) Pakistani film and TV actress Zara Noor Abbas has said ‘my talent is not going to suffer because of what size I am’.
During conversation with BBC, she spoke about how she faced body shaming and trolling at start of her career.
“The reason why I was ashamed of a lot of things was because of my body. I was body shamed for a very, very long time on social media of course,” she said.
“I had to block out of it because if I keep on listening to them then I am going to lose focus and people who say that I talk like Mahira, or I speak like Mahira, I think Mahira is an intelligent woman, so if they’re comparing me with her then I am glad of it,” Zara further added.
“I feel like Mahira Khan is one of the biggest stars in our country, she represented us globally, so anybody like her would be an asset to our industry.”
