Over the years, Neha Dhupia has also faced huge trolling for her body weight, grey hair and many more body issues. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Neha opened up about having body image issues when she was young. However, she also mentioned that now such things don’t matter to her, and this change had come in her post the birth of her daughter, Mehr. Talking about the same, she said:
“I had body image issues when I was younger. It is all super-silly, but I was always conscious about my ‘heavy bottom’. And today, I look back at my 20s and I am like, ‘What was I so worried about? One of the most beautiful things about getting older is that you start caring less about what other people think…about their expectations and judgments. Instead, you start forming your own opinions about yourself, your life, your body, and your beliefs. It is a good place to be at. The first time I decided to not give a damn about what people said about my body was after I gave birth to my daughter.”
In the same conversation, she talked about post-partum depression, breastfeeding and other first-time experiences of her life. However, amidst all, Neha faced several opinions about the same from many people. Sharing how she feels good about herself regardless of her weight, she added:
“I went through postpartum depression, and it was eight difficult months of trying to put up a brave front. But every night, and this was when I was breastfeeding until late, I would go look at what people had to say about me, and everybody seemed to have an opinion. I had gained 22 kilos at that point which I lost, and then gained again when I got pregnant the second time. Throughout this time, I often judged myself and struggled with my confidence. And then one day, it just hit me that it didn’t matter what size I was, it didn’t matter how I looked, I needed to feel good about myself regardless of the number on the weighing scale.”

At the end of the conversation, Neha shared one of her breastfeeding experiences with her daughter, Mehr which had bothered her a lot. She shared that while searching for a breastfeeding spot in a mall, she was asked to go to the toilet to feed her child. Wholly shaken by this response, Neha concluded:
“A few months after giving birth to my daughter Mehr, I returned to work on Roadies and I had to nurse my baby. Some years ago, I was at a mall, with my daughter in a pram, and I asked where I could breastfeed her. They told me to go to the toilet and feed my child because most malls and airports and offices aren’t thinking about a new mother’s needs. This bothered me, and that’s when I decided to launch Freedom To Feed, in 2019. I wrote about my experiences as a new mother struggling to breastfeed, and, within a few days, thousands of mothers wrote in with similar stories. It was insane!”
