Actor Parineeti Chopra has earned plaudits from her fans after she posted a photo with stretch marks on her Instagram page.
Although the actor was merely flaunting her ‘bright blue sunglasses’ that she said was for life, what was noticed the most in the photo were her stretch marks around her stomach. The stretch marks are there as a result of the actor’s weight loss programme that she’s undergone.
Fans simply loved the actor’s confidence to not get the marks air-brushed as was alleged in the case of Kareena Kapoor Khan, who was slammed for allegedly photoshopping her photo soon after coming out of her pregnancy.
Parineeti’s photo has now gone viral with nearly 6,00,000 likes on the image.
Here are some of the comments;

Parineeti has never been shy to admitting that she used to overweight. She had gone on record saying that she would often be conscious of how she looked and what people thought of her due to her overweight.
“BEFORE… All my life, I have struggled with how I look, how I feel, and how people looked at me. 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!”, Parineeti wrote on her Instagram account, after losing oodles of weight. She added, “Like I always say – if I could do it. So can you.” She was quoted by NDTV.
