Shilpa Shetty remembers her mother calling her “nikammi” and “completely useless.”

Shilpa Shetty, whose next film is titled Nikamma, recently remarked about being branded a ‘nikammi’ in a new interview. In the action comedy, which also stars Abhimanyu Dassani and Shirley Setia, the actor plays Agni, a superhero. Agni transforms Abhimanyu’s ‘nikamma’ (lazy) persona Siddharth into a responsible man in the film.

When asked if her father Surendra Shetty or mother Sunanda Shetty had ever nicknamed her ‘nikammi,’ Shilpa answered it was her mother who used the term. Sunanda lost her temper after seeing her prelims report, calling her “totally useless” and “nikammi,” Shilpa remembered.

She said to ETimes, “It happened to me when my mother saw my preliminary exam results right before my SSC exam. I had received a dismal score of 48 percent. I used to play volleyball. I was more interested in extracurricular activities, and I was chosen as a volleyball player for the Bombay zone. My mother, on the other hand, wept for the first time when she saw my results. She predicted that you’d be completely useless, worthless, and nikammi.”

Shilpa also expressed her feelings about her mother’s outburst. “She stated,” she explained “My life goal at the time was to become a volleyball coach, so I thought I had it all figured out. But, when I realised my mother was worried about my grades and the fact that I was a nikammi, I studied hard for ten days and got a good grade.” Shilpa’s mother was relieved, so everything was OK.

Nikamma, directed by Sabbir Khan, will be released in theatres on June 17. She recently appeared in the romance comedy Hungama 2 in 2021, which marked her 14-year return to the big screen. Nikamma, not Hungama 2, was supposed to be her comeback, she recently told Mashable India.

Dolly Singh on her “love-hate” relation with her physical appearance

Actress and content producer Dolly Singh recently talked about her weight swings and image worries in an Instagram post. She has since acknowledged that she is still working on accepting her body as it is and that there are still days when she stays away from others in order to avoid hearing criticism of her fluctuations in weight.

Dolly revealed in an Instagram post how people make fun of her weight. Her house is not one of the few individuals or places, she claimed, where she feels safe enough to be herself.

Relationship between hate and love
“Like everybody else, I’ve had a journey with my body of accepting it, not accepting it, Hating it and loving it and all of that,” she says when explaining why she decided to share the picture. I believe that I was just thinking about something when I decided to post about it at this particular moment. I recently lost a lot of weight, which is very normal for me because I usually gain less weight than I lose. Of course, this also brings scrutiny because my weight fluctuates like everyone else’s, and I suddenly realised that I was avoiding some people because I felt that my new weight or appearance will not invite great things from them or they will not be welcoming it maybe, wonder how safe space in the scenario is so important, it’s only a few people in your life that really let you be and enjoy and don’t make everything about how you look and your weight and everything else so I felt sad”. 

I felt certain that many others would be in a similar situation, therefore it was also something I wanted to discuss. “I decided to share it through my Instagram post,” the actor continued. Thank You For Coming is his most recent Bollywood blockbuster.

Continuous journey
Dolly, who rose to stardom on social media, acknowledges that she is still working on coming to terms with her physical appearance.

It has been a long journey, similar to every woman’s, she recalls. “It took me many years to really come to terms with the way I am, accept it if not love it,” she says. “Obviously, as a kid, you don’t really know, and then suddenly you’re very aware of how you look and how people perceive you and that you don’t meet the beauty standards.”

If I’m being absolutely honest, I believe that my true sense of contentment with my identity and appearance didn’t exist until I was around 25 or 26. Although the majority of days are wonderful, there are still bad ones. I think social media has definitely helped me a lot, she adds. “And honestly, I actually owe it to people on the Internet who follow me and say nice things because it has given me such a confidence boost and people who constantly put out such body positive content,” she says.

Not a simple procedure
In this passage, Dolly acknowledges that her journey towards self-acceptance has not been easy.

When asked about her greatest struggle, she responds, “I think the hardest part is to keep doing it and keep reminding yourself that what you have is great and of course you can be fitter and whatever your goal maybe, but that doesn’t mean that what you have right now, the body that is providing for you, is doing any less, or you should be hating it.” She also says that she has had to constantly pick herself up from pieces because it’s not like once you start loving yourself there are no bad days.

“Even though others may say otherwise, I think it’s difficult to constantly remind yourself that that’s not how it is,” she adds. “Because sometimes I try to look at my body as a friend and that’s when I start feeling bad for how I treat it sometimes or how I say mean things to it sometimes.”

When you ask her if she feels totally at ease with your body right now, Dolly says, “It’s a journey..And while it might be a rollercoaster, I believe that as we get older and wiser, navigating the changing ways our bodies and skin look has become simpler, but the journey never ends.
