The successful model and mum sent across a positive message to embrace your scars.
At 45, Malaika Arora can easily give the young fitness models a good run for their money.
Recently, the actor shared gorgeous pictures from her holiday in the Maldives.
While there were pictures of her chilling in the pool and taking in the cool wind and waves on a yatch, there was one particular photograph that really stood out.
In the picture, Malaika is seen wearing a white crochet crop top and shorts striking a candid pose, revealing her svelte bod.
But what netizens actually saw was a picture of a woman, a successful model flaunting her stretch marks.
Within minutes, the unedited picture became an inspiring example for women to shed their insecurities and embrace their scars.
'I am not a fan of her but I totally respect her for flaunting her stretch marks like this. Respect,' commented user sizzleanddrizzle on Instagram
'Major respect for this unstoppable woman for not retouching her pic! Women out there -- please learn to respect your bodies for what they are! You are beautiful,' wrote Anchal Awasthi.
'Marks are the tatoo of a beautiful journey motherhood,' Monika Gurbakshani posted.
While the first pic has been liked by nearly 4 lakh people on Instagram, the hottie went on to post another pic in the same outfit to bid adieu to her fabulous holiday.
More power to you, Malla!
