There are still some actresses embracing their curves in the Indian film industry. Here’s a look at the voluptuous stunners inspiring to stay comfortable in one’s own skin.

Showbiz and skinny go hand in hand.

In an industry where women starve themselves daily to look painfully svelte, there are some who refuse to play such hunger games (yes, we mean America’s newest sweetheart, Jennifer Lawrence) for the sake of superficial appearances.

Back home, the likes of Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Ileana D’Cruz, and Asin practice slimness like science.

At the same time, there are still a handful of actresses embracing their curves in the tradition of full-figured beauties like Madhubala and Meena Kumari.

Here’s a look at the voluptuous stunners inspiring to stay comfortable in one’s own skin.

Sonakshi Sinha

A far cry from the famished fashionistas of tinsel town, Sonakshi Sinha lives up to the ‘khaate peete ghar ki ladki’ reputation to the hilt.

Even though her detractors love to give her grief about her weight, the Dabangg girl’s success shuts them up in style.

Unlike her super slim cousin Priyanka, Parineeti’s healthy disposition may not earn her the title of *exotic. *

But that gives us all the more reason to admire her as a) A promising actress and b) More than a clotheshorse. (Don’t we have enough of those already?)

'Women and curves are non-negotiable and I celebrate my femininity,' is what Vidya Balan said to a journalist not too long ago.

Clearly, the lady is comfortable with her body.

And that’s what makes her brazen sensuality in The Dirty Picture both racy and refreshing.

Even after that, the Shaadi Ke Side Effect star has never showed any inclination for any drastic weight loss measures.

Right from the beginning of her career, Kajol refused to part with her pleasant plump form and still went on to become Bollywood’s numero uno.

What does that prove? Talent and success aren’t dependent on dieting.

Down South, filmmakers don’t quite care for reed-thin women. On the contrary, well-endowed is the way to be.

And Namitha lives up to this expectation to the fullest.

Hindi speaking audiences may remember her as the tantalising Tamil beauty shaking butt with Shah Rukh Khan in the One Two Three track of Chennai Express. But the curvaceous Priyamani also has a prestigious National Award under her belt.

How’s that for best of both worlds?
