Sanam Jung, who is currently starring in the drama series “Pyari Mona,” has stated why she declined the role of an obese girl.
Jung recently appeared in the TV series “Pyari Mona” as Mona, an obese girl. Sanam Jung stated in a recent interview with BBC Urdu that she initially denied the offer and then accepted yes after a year.
According to Jung, she decided to do it because she believed she had undergone the same body shaming. “I also believed it was an important message to give,” she added as she opted to read and perform it from the heart.
Because of the people, I naturally declined. I was thinking about the reactions of the people around me when I was doing it, she admitted. In an interview, she previously highlighted how body shaming affected her and how her strong family support helped her get over it.
Because of what she went through, Jung is now able to fight fatphobia in the drama series “Pyari Mona,” which is about body shaming. In the show, Sanam plays a character who is overweight.
In well-known dramas like “Dil-e-Muztar,” “Mere Humdam Mere Dost,” “Alvida,” and “Mohabbat Subh Ka Sitara,” Jung has displayed her talent.
