However, she is thankful to the ‘pressure’ that pushed her to attain a fitter body.
She took to Instagram to express her proudness of having trimmed and skinny body: “I was constantly made fun of, but the person I was, I generously laughed with them.
“Today, many people ask me what triggered the weight loss, did I give in to the “bollywood pressure”? To that I say – thank God I became an actor and had that pressure! I am able to achieve what I couldn’t achieve otherwise. I feel more confident, I feel at peace, and I feel proud!” she added.
Parineeti expressed joy over inspiring girls and women around the globe through her journey to fitness.
“Girls and women meet me all around the world, at airports, events, on the street; they hold my hand, hug me, and tell me their struggles and how I changed their lives. They show me their wallpapers, their wallets, and it’s all pictures of me! They look at those pictures and want to make that change in their own lives. I have seen women tear up and tell me I changed their life. Post delivery weight, teenage obesity, they are fighting it, and I am their inspiration. As an actor, There is no bigger achievement for me.”
