Body shaming is not OK, Sona Mohapatra speaks out

Singer Sona Mohapatra has delivered a message against pre-conceived notions about celebrities being expected to have a skinny body, saying she is proud of her body the way it is.

“My relationship with my body is a love-love relationship. It’s a hard earned evolution and one that I am proud of. I have aspired for fitness which is a given for a live performer who exerts like an athlete on a concert stage for 3 hours in a stretch but can never be shamed or worried about not fitting into the sample sizes, free designer wear that caters to a certain skinny body type!” Sona wrote on her verified Instagram account on Wednesday.

This is not the first time the singer is being vocal on this topic. In January, Sona had posted photographs of herself where she can be seen posing in a monokini.
