Tejasswi Prakash continued, “To be honest I feel that is an easy way out. You just spend money and get the flaws which might be on your face, body or wherever and then just maintain it. Not like I am judging anyone who does it but I feel it is an easier way out. I’ve always been a woman who has been extremely proud of how my body is or the way I was made by god. That’s how he wanted me to be. If people don’t like it I can’t help it, it is not in my hands to go and correct these things.” Also Read: Here’s How Much 10 Of India’s Highest-Paid Directors Charge Per Movie
She continued, “Because it is very important for women to love themselves. If you don’t love yourself and the way your body is and you keep doing things to yourself, then how do you expect anybody else to love you. So I am of the opinion that I extremely love myself. I am very confident that this is the way I am. If someone tries to shame me, my body is not going to affect me. Because I know who and what I am. It doesn’t affect me and I don’t think it will ever.
