It looks like Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai is being criticized for not losing her weight fast enough “like Victoria Beckham did,” according to her critics. Aishwarya, who gave birth to her second child last November, is hearing it from her fans in India who say that “it is her duty” to get back to her pre-pregnancy body for her fans, her movie career and her image. The Daily Mail writes:
Since the birth of her daughter in November last year, Aishwarya Rai has been open about the fact that she is in no hurry to lose the few extra pounds she gained during her pregnancy.
The model and actress, who won the Miss World title in 1994, defended her choice, saying she wanted simply to ‘enjoy motherhood.’
Commentators have been unkind, lambasting the star for letting her fans down. Many have gone a step further, suggesting the star has a ‘duty’ to her fans to regain her pre-pregnancy figure. One website posted a video of the star looking less than her usual svelte self, flicking between photographs of her pre-birth, and photos now.
That’s pretty harsh, isn’t it? Kudos to Aishwarya for not letting the pressure get to her and enjoying her life as a mother instead.
