Lacy Jaye Hansen a graduate of Wichita State University and a two-time Boston Marathon finisher writes in her column Aishwarya Rai Pressured by Bollywood Fans to be Skinny after Baby in http://www.dietsinreview.com
As other Ash supporters have stated, she is on a professional break, and her looks shouldn’t have any bearing on her celebrity. This excuse didn’t fly with most commentators in Bollywood as they are only giving her one year to get back to perfection.
“One year down the line, if you want to have a debate whether she looks the way she used to, then that’s fine.”
This obsession with unnaturally skinny pregnant women is bad enough in the US. It has officially been given a name as of late,pregorexia. Eating disorder specialists are warning that many women are under the pressure to not gain too much weight during their pregnancy and what little they do gain they need to lose quickly after. This issue is clearly even worse for those in the limelight of Bollywood.
True supporters of Aishwarya are urging the media to back off as “She’s enjoying her life and her new baby, and doesn’t give a damn about what the rest of us think of her or her body. And that’s good reason for all women – pregnant or not – to celebrate.”
