Parineeti Chopra recently flaunted a crop top and denim jacket in a post on Instagram, revealing stretch marks from losing weight. Netizens were all praise for her move.
The actor was last seen in Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again. Parineeti made headlines back in 2015 and impressed everyone with her transformation after she lost weight during a year-long meticulous training.
The actor confidently posted a picture on Friday, gladly showing off two little stretch marks resulting from weight loss.
Naturally, fans noticed the stretch marks and heaped praises in support of body positivity. They are all talking about how the actor had guts to reveal what is natural, by not trying to hide the marks
“The way u showing ur stretch marks.. It’s real u.. Commonly we most of gals have.. N it make us conscious.. But after seeing this pic.. We won’t be..,” a fan of the actor posted in a comment. “Thank you for keeping it real intentional or unintentional but it does means a lot to us when today it’s all about bashing people unnecessarily even for the tiny details and non stop body shaming,” posted one fan.

Another admirer said, “Stretch marks! Wow! A real woman, I like it.”
“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 in an Instagram post back in 2016.
The actor impressed everyone with her acting skill since the beginning in Bollywood. But she had also claimed that the pressure of looking her absolute best was the reason she decided to lose weight, something she had wanted to do for a long time.
The 29-year-old is now prepping for her next films Kesari, opposite Akshay Kumar and also Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Namastey Canada, opposite Arjun Kapoor.
