Shark Tank India 2 judge Namita Thapar recently spoke his heart out about being body shamed in the latest promo of the show. The shark revealed that she has been a victim of body shaming during her teenage days. A promo video shared by the channel shows how entrepreneurs pitched their clothing brand and said that they would want to make clothes for plus-sized people.
Namita, who is the executive director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals asked them why they did not think of making clothes exclusively for plus-sized people. Namita says that she was called ‘aft’, ‘moti’ and people shamed her. The pitcher said that the biggest problem in the plus-size industry is that plus-size people are treated like an outcast. But, their brand will make them feel included and not have a separate size chart for them.

Well, this is not the first time when Namita spoke about body-shaming. Last year, during a conversation with Chetan Bhagat, Namita said that when she was 21, she was bullied for being overweight and having a lot of facial hair and acne. She said that she used to feel ugly and no guy looked at her. She even revealed that being body-shamed as a teenager leaves a lot of scars. She even said that a guy in her class called her ‘the girl with the mustache’ in Marathi.
