Pooja Bhatt supported Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and wrote on Twitter, "Find this debate about Aishwarya Rai's weight inane. She is a gorgeous woman period. All the ugly people being malicious should take a hike!"
Celebs like Lara Dutta and Sonali Bendre also defended Aishwarya Rai.
Lara Dutta told a leading daily, “You have no rights to pass comments on a woman like Aishwarya, who has gone through a hard time during pregnancy. I didn’t put on weight because I practiced yoga during my pregnancy, but that’s a personal choice which may not be the case with Ash. So, please refrain from getting judgmental.”
Sonali Bendre seconds Lara Dutta. She said, “People are being too harsh on Aishwarya. She has just had a baby. She deserves a break. Please let her be. Let her enjoy this happy phase of her life.”
It is quite normal for a woman to gain weight after pregnancy, but we really don't understand the hue and cry surrounding Aishwarya's 'weighty' appearance.
It looks like Aishwarya Rai is paying the price for being a star!
