Celebrated author and wife of star Ayushmann Khurrana, Tahira Kashyap took to her Instagram handle to share her insightful thoughts about body positivity. She took to her social media to reflect upon what happens when one witness unrealistic beauty standards over on the internet. It all began when she saw some pictures of popular model Kendall Jenner posing in skimpy red lingerie.
Her post said, “Kendall and her tiny thong pictures are all over the internet and like many women I too wondered how is it freakin possible to look like that! The belly button is just a seductive slit or more like a kala tikka we put on kids and I don’t know how that tiny portion of cloth could hide her essentials esp down below. ”
Tahira further expressed, “And so it was time to reflect (quite literally) and assess, more so judge, my reality. Hmmm, what do I think about what I saw? Well I saw this 69kg (every kilo matters) woman ( out of which 4 Kendall’s can be taken out) with strong limbs and bruises that she got yest by actually saving her puppy, her daughter and didi by jumping in the lift as the sensors weren’t working and it was closing its doors on the 3 of them who were waiting for my son to join. I stood there like rock of Gibraltar ( or atleast in my head) squeezing the door ajar with all the strength I had and had the 3 of them get out of the sense less and sensor less elevator’s way while quickly pulling myself in the lift with them. I felt quite heroic and grateful to this weight that I am trying to beat off, for had it not been for that, someone would have def gotten hurt! Grateful to you ass for quite literally saving all our asses!?”
She then concluded the post with an uplifting message and said, “Moral of the story don’t wait for dysfunctional closed doors to open the way to love yourself a wee bit more?”
