Sonam, who took on the bodyshamers in a hard-hitting tweet on March 9, found a staunch ally in Anushka.
Fat shaming or skinny shaming.. It's still body shaming!? Sonam Kapoor (@sonamakapoor) March 9, 2016
The conversation extended with Sonam telling Anushka that people were 'jealous' of her since she was 'self-respecting, intelligent, successful and beautiful.'
@AnushkaSharma people are just J of you! Coz you're a self respecting intelligent successful beautiful woman!!!? Sonam Kapoor (@sonamakapoor) March 9, 2016
From the sets of her American show Quantico, Priyanka Chopra also threw her weight firmly behind the NH10 actress:
Several actresses including Sonakshi Sinha and Parineeti Chopra have previously hit back after being fat-shamed or body-shamed. The star-kids who have chimed in include Sridevi and Pooja Bedi's daughters who have posted lengthy responses to disrespectful comments about their appearance.
