Sanam Jung opens up about fat shaming

Sanam Jung has returned to TV screen as Mona in the Hum TV drama, Pyari Mona

Sanam Jung opens up about fat shaming! Reveals that she wanted to quit working because people fat-shamed her after post-pregnancy weight gain.

In a recent interview with FUCHSIA magazine, Sanam Jang talked about putting on weight.

Sanam Jung, who plays Mona in the Hum TV drama, Pyari Mona, talked about the character and why it resonated with her.

The former morning show host is seen wearing a fat suit for her character.

“I do remember when I was expecting Alaya, it was very tough for me to find clothes — I was doing morning shows at the time,” Sanam said.

“Even after that, it was quite difficult for me as designers have limited sizes and not everybody wants to give you clothes when you’re a certain size, which is really sad. It’s not fair. Why? Why do you always think that these clothes would only suit a thin girl? I also feel like stylists don’t want to style you. They only want to style those who are safe — they say ‘This is safe, this is easy.’ Yeah, that happens,” she added.

“Why do people think she’ll look beautiful only if she’s thin? I feel this to this day. I could step out of it but it hurts, it feels difficult and you get depressed,” she stated.

She went on to add, “I used to stand behind a chair when my show would open, in my master shot, I would place the cue cards in front of my stomach after spreading them. How disturbing is it that you’re working and this is what’s going on at the back of your head? ‘Assalamulaikum, welcome to *Jaago Pakistan,’* and I’m half covered by the chair so I appear less.”

“At that time I wanted to hide my face. I did not want to do it, I did not want to appear on television, I don’t want to work,” she said.

She added, “This was very disturbing for me, I was already going through postpartum, I don’t understand how to handle my child, I’m was a new mother — I don’t know what’s happening with me and then I’m reading comments.”

Jang added she had a lot of family support that got her through it.

“When I used to come home and share this with my husband, he would hold my hands and say, ‘Sanam, you are beautiful’,” she said.

Talking about her new drama Pyari Mona, which addresses body shaming, Sanam said, “That is the jawab [answer], that it doesn’t matter. I am embracing it and I’ve learnt it now after reading this script. Why did I say no at first? Because there was a fear in me deep down but then I read the script and understood that this is a message — for me, for everyone, so it’s important to do it.”
