But, the actor didn’t let this rebuking falter her determination and opened up about the stigma that surrounds an overweight girl intending to join entertainment industry.

Hareem in a post on her official Instagram account stated, “For the longest time I had people telling me I was too big or too fat to be in the media and especially in front of the camera”.

As they say, all’s well that ends well; Hareem further shared that she has definitely been blessed with the best:

“I now feel blessed to have worked with some amazing people and receiving immense love from my fans, who judge me more on my talent than my ‘body’”.

“I just want to reach out to all the people, especially women, who are body-shamed by friends, family, teachers, parents and who are struggling to make their bodies a home for themselves. You are beautiful inside out regardless of what the society wants you to be – just like I am!” the post stated. “Learn to love and accept yourself, we all have flaws earn to love and accept yourself, we all have flaws learn to embrace them and make them you’re strength,” she added.

Here is the complete inspirational Instagram post by Hareem Farooq:

Some labels are inbred in our society, and even in media and they are just evil. For the longest time I had people telling me i was too big or too fat to be in the media and especially in front of the camera. After being blessed to have worked with some amazing people and receiving immense love from my fans, who judged me more on my talent than my ‘body’, I realised what was really important. that is your health, mind, heart and soul. the rest is all secondary. I believe every secondary thing becomes beautiful once you’ve sorted the primary ones. Today I just want to reach out to all the people, especially women, who are body-shamed by friends, family, teachers, parents and who are struggling to make their bodies a home for themselves. You are beautiful inside out regardless of what the society wants you to be – just like I am! Learn to love and accept yourself, we all have flaws learn to embrace them and make them you’re strength. Don’t let the society label you to their norms. Let your confidence speak for you. So keep your heart in the right place and walk with your head high because you are God’s creation and whatever he creates is simply beautiful! #WashTheLabel #LoveYourself #stopbodyshaming #stopbodyshamingyourself
