Shahid Kapoor’s Co-Actor Vanita Kharat Opens Up On Her Nude Photoshoot: “This is The Form We Are Born In, So What’s Vulgar About It”
Vanita Kharat who played the iconic role of a maid in Shahid Kapoor’s starrer Kabir Singh has been making headlines for her recent photoshoot. The actress posted a nude picture on social media from her recent photoshoot for a calendar and the picture went viral in no time. In the picture, Vanita Kharat posed nude, while holding a pillow in front of her. While sharing the picture, Vanita talked about loving her body and celebrating it as it is, regardless of its size, color, age, and more. While many loved it, others criticized the actress for the same. Now, Vanita Kharat has finally opened up about posing nude for the photoshoot.
Speaking to ETimes, Vanita Kharat said, “My friends, both from the industry and otherwise, and even people whom I don’t know seem to have loved it. They called me with compliments. Some confessed that they felt good about themselves after seeing the picture and some are going to put it up on their wall. Of course, there have been detractors too. Some questioned my motive behind shooting in the buff and the only thing I have to tell them is that this is the form we are born in, so what’s vulgar about it? Many wondered the reason for the kite. To me, a kite that scales lofty skies, signifies you want to fly high and have dreams.”
Talking about the concept of photoshoot, the actress said, “Why should an overweight girl be conscious about her looks and clothes? I have seen even men being very bothered if they are overweight, but women are in the majority. The photoshoot is our way of contributing to the body positivity movement. I want people to understand the beauty of the thought behind it and celebrate themselves no matter how they look, without sulking about why they aren’t lean and fair. Why are we told that only dolls and fairies are beautiful since childhood?”
Upon being asked, whether she has ever faced any bias in the industry, Vanita said, “I can’t speak for others but I get offers to play a mom, aunt, or maid. But that’s a problem with the industry. Body positivity movement and industry requirements should not be confused.”
