Indian influencer rises against body shaming, Hania crowns her 'queen'

Her social media may be awash with photos of her easy dimpled smile, but actress Hania Aamir has also unabashedly used her online platform to speak up for mental health. So naturally, when Indian influencer Dolly Singh shared a post on combating body shaming, Hania felt compelled to reshare the message on her own IG story.

“I love my body in every state because it supports me […] I have grown up despising my body, hating every bit of it, so this…this is growth,” Dolly said. Despite coming to terms with her body, she noted that not everyone around her was as forgiving, leading her to put up boundaries for her own mental well-being. “If you could do something today, try to be someone’s safe space,” she urged in her post.

Moved by Dolly’s captivating words, Hania wrote, “It takes tremendous courage to fight your fears and insecurities and then turn every mean comment into your armour and try to give your community something positive out of the negativity you have received. You’re a queen! Thank you for this powerful message!”
