"I was not able to eat well."
Tejasswi Prakash, who is currently seen in Naagin 6, is happy with her look and get-up on the show.
The actress lost weight before she started shooting for Naagin 6 when she was still in the Bigg Boss house.
Tejasswi is glad that she lost weight and says it helped her look desirable and attractive.
She says: “With the kind of things that happened to me in the house, I was not able to eat well.
“I lost a lot of weight in the house and then I got an offer for Naagin.
“One of the most important things on the show is that the Naagin should look desirable and fitter.
“I am glad that I could pull off the look because I lost weight and people are loving my glam quotient in the show.”
Tejasswi shares that she is happy to have kept working for the past decade because the experience has helped her reach here today.
She says: “Even if my shows in the past landed in controversies, I was able to strike a chord with the audiences.
“So, only because I did those shows, I landed Bigg Boss, Khatron Ke Khiladi and Naagin now.”
Tejasswi Prakash is constantly receiving attention when she steps out with her boyfriend and reality TV star Karan Kundrra.
Ask the actress if it gets overwhelming and they seek privacy to spend quality time and she says: “No, in fact, we love the attention.
“I am glad that people love our being a couple and I have even seen our well-wishers go to the temple and pray for us to always be together.
“We feel extremely blessed to receive so much attention and love from the people wherever we go.
“Who would not like attention? I don’t feel that our privacy is being compromised because we are in a job to connect with people and if we can establish that bond with viewers, why not?
“Yes, we don’t get time because of our work commitments and at times, seek some moments together but otherwise I don’t feel the constant glare is too much to handle.”
Tejasswi Prakash recently opened up about facing body-shaming comments for being underweight.
Reacting to the negative comments, Tejasswi Prakash said:
“This body-shaming doesn’t only happen with people who are overweight.
“It happens with people who are thin. I was also receiving negative comments because I was underweight.
“In life when you become an actor and you have money, you get tempted to work on your body, many times you get suggestions that do this to your body or do that.
“Do external surgeries or corrections to look perfect.”
“To be honest I feel that is an easy way out. You just spend money and get the flaws which might be on your face, body or wherever and then just maintain it.
“Not like I am judging anyone who does it but I feel it is an easier way out.”
