Rubina Dilaik Slams ‘Pseudo Fans’ Who Shamed Her For Weight Gain After Contracting Covid

The stairway to success is not always crowded with supporters and encouraging friends. Sometimes, you have to confront those fake well-wishers who camouflage perfectly as our benefactors but continuously wish for our downfall.

Television actor Rubina Dilaik, who rose to fame after playing the role of Radhika in ‘Choti Bahu’ recently met people who were more concerned about the way she looked rather than her talent and abilities.

The actor lost her calm after her ‘pseudo fans’ started shaming her for her weight gain. The actor is often seen sweating it out and staying fit and toned. However, she might have gained a couple of kilos especially after her brave fight with the novel coronavirus earlier this year.

“I’m recovering from an ailment. My body had gone through a lot of things during Covid,” said Rubina. “I was bedridden for a month. My body is healing. I need to show self-love. And to all the trollers, I don’t care about them, but they need to stop crossing their boundaries. This is my life,” DNA quoted the actor saying.

But her faux well-wishers weren’t concerned about all the pain and mental trauma that comes with it. In fact, they decided to send her hate messages and troll her for not being at her best all the time when it comes to wearing designer clothes or doing big projects.

But like the bada** that she is, Rubina gave them a taste of their own medicine by penning a bold post on her social media. She goes on to write:

Dear well Wishers/ PSEUDO FANS, I am observing that my weight gain is bothering you! You are relentlessly sending hate mails and messages, you don’t see my worth if I don’t hire a PR or if I don’t tip paps for spotting … you are threatening to leave fandoms coz I am fat now, I don’t wear good (designer) clothes and I am not working hard to get BIG projects …. Well, I am indeed disappointed that, FOR YOU my physical appearance is far more important than my talent and my commitment to my work …. But I have GOOD NEWS for you all…. ITS MY LIFE and it has phases, and you too are a phase of my life!

PS: – I respect my fans, so don’t call yourself my FAN!

Explaining the reason behind her sudden outburst on IG, she said, “When the haters start involving families, you need to react.”

“They will tag my mom, father, husband, sisters, even my far-off cousins that tell Rubina that she is not working hard. She is looking old, has gained weight. Nobody has given you the right to reach out to them. It doesn’t matter to me, but somewhere my family gets bogged down.”

She further added that “beauty is now being judged by pre-determined parameters such as botox lips, raised eyebrows, chiseled jawline, well-shaped nose, and lean torso.” She concluded with a plea to normalize women with extra pounds and not get obsessed with their shape and size.

Her OG friends and fans soon came in to have her back.

Punjabi actress Himanshi Khurana also extended her support and called out haters for trolling the actress. Sharing a picture from her workout session, she wrote:

We can’t understand how difficult it must be for celebs to always look their best even if they’re having a bad day. Even though they’ve decided to open up their lives for us, we shouldn’t forget that at the end of the day, they’re also humans.

Spare them the harsh judgement, guys!
