Sameera Reddy has been consistently practising self-love and accepting herself for who she is.
However, she has been vocal about her struggles with body image and the pressure to fit in.
Reddy is one of several actresses to speak out about the hard-to-reach Bollywood beauty standards.
In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, the actress revealed that she tried just about everything to fit in the industry.
Sameera Reddy said:
“I was told I was too dark, too tall, too broad. I didn’t fit into that girl next door look.
“I had to constantly try and fit in it and it really exhausted and tired me.
“I don’t regret it because that was my learning to learn to come to this point of loving myself unconditionally.
“You have to go through a point where you actually hate yourself because when you come to this point of hating yourself so much and break into pieces, you can put yourself back together in the most beautiful way possible.”
