Ileana D’Cruz is the latest Bollywood actress to have spoken out against body-shaming. Calling out trolls on social media, Ileana shared a video to spread awareness about cyber harassment. The minute-and-a-half-long video sees a young woman — essayed by YouTuber Danielle Mansutti — being subjected to criticism for her appearance.

At the end of it, the video highlights that 4,500 people in America commit suicide every year due to cyber bullying. The 30-year-old actress confesses that while browsing through her Instagram feed, the clip “stirred something” in her.

“It wasn’t meant to be something that simply goes viral. I hope the more people see it, the more they consciously stop bullying. That post gives you perspective on what it’s like being on the other end of a very cowardly attack. It can have serious consequences,” she tells mid-day.

“There is an obsession over having a certain body type, a certain look. As a society, we need to appreciate people for what they are. It’s easy to attack others, but everyone is beautiful in their unique way,” she adds.
