It wasn't body-shaming at all...
Parineeti Chopra's recent video has been going viral on social media sites apparently because a lot of people have claimed that the actress is trying to 'body-shame' her friend. Parineeti starred in a video which shows her and Alia Bhatt, who are currently in the US for the Dream Team tour, wishing a friend on his birthday. In the video, Parineeti says, 'eat less, become thin,' which is what left a lot of netizens enraged. That's primarily because something like this coming from someone who has always been so comfortable in her own skin, went on to say something like that.

However, a source close to Pari revealed that it was a very private video and she is absolutely clueless about how it came out. "It was a private joke between she and her friend. It was meant to be between the friend and her. Body shaming was not her intention and it was supposed to be taken very lightly. Pari thinks that it is ridiculous for people to take this out of context and give it a body shaming angle."
For all those who don't know, it was one of Pari’s friend’s birthday and she and Alia decided to wish him. Since they couldn’t meet him as they are on the Dream Team tour in the US, they shot a video which has Pari saying ‘Eat less, become thin.’ Now that was totally unexpected. Especially from someone who was on the ‘healthier’ side. She began her Bollywood journey when she was chubby and a lot of people actually looked up to her because from what it looked like, she loved her body and never gave a damn about being skinny. In her case, it was all about her acting talent and never about her body.
