Over the years, actresses like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Neha Dhupia, Surveen Chawla, etc have been inspiring fans to embrace pregnancy in the most positive way possible. Not only have they given fashion goals to many expecting mothers, but they also made sure to dole out fitness tips post-pregnancy. Amongst the small screen ladies, actress Chhavi Mittal is the one who has been doing the same. Her workout tips to pregnant women have been very well-received on social media, but it also attracted a nasty incident recently. Yes, a man reached out to the actress asking for weight loss tips for his pregnant wife. However, he referred his wife to be growing fat like a cow and this irked Chhavi so much that she went on to write a lengthy note on social media about fat shaming.
After her post, we got in touch with the actress and asked her views about such untoward incidents on social media and if it gives people the liberty to cross the line. To this, Chhavi said, “I think that people cross a line whenever they get a chance if they have an inkling towards it. What is sad is that on social media people get to hide behind ambiguous profiles and say whatever they like.” Talking about India being more liberal about weight, the actress further told us, “Weight is irrelevant. What is important is fitness and good health.” Check out Chhavi’s post here:

Let me begin by thanking each one of you who have been following my posts and inboxing/commenting with your feedback and queries. However, I was completely shocked by a query in my inbox recently. A husband reached out to me asking for weight loss tips for his pregnant wife, who he said “is becoming a cow already”! It pains me immensely to know that a husband, who is seeing his wife go through the daily pain of pregnancy can completely disregard the sacrifice that she has made in terms of her own body, to create a new life for both of them! How can somebody be so insensitive towards their own life partner! What sort of person can treat a woman, any woman in that way! I implore all men, all husbands to RESPECT women around you. Especially if she is pregnant but nevertheless! A woman.. your wife… is getting ready to tear her own body apart to get this beautiful being into this world.. a world which she believes is full of love.. love for her and her baby… So love your wife, because nobody in the world will be with you in your worst times as much as your gorgeous wife, who sticks with you through your romance as much as she does through your rotten temper. And trust me, she will give you FAR more than you will ever give her in your whole life! #Wives _______________________________ #wife #husband #husbandwiferelationship #husbandwife #relationship #women #woman #pregnant woman #respect #love #childbirth
Since Chhavi has a YouTube channel called Shitty Ideas Trending, we asked her if she would tackle this issue in one of her videos on the digital platform. But the actress said no and stated, “SIT is not a platform where we portray our personal views. It’s more of light-hearted entertainment.” Chhavi, who is married to director Mohit Hussein, will be welcoming her second child in May. She has been part of some popular shows in the past like Teen Bahu Raniyan, Tumhari Disha and Ek Chutki Aasman.
