Ritabhari Chakraborty is gearing up for the big release of her much awaited film Fatafati. The film captures the experience of an overweight woman who is judged by society because she’s overweight. And her dreams are weighed with respect to the size of her body.

Shedding more about her diet and exercise she says,
“Gaining weight feels easy but surely it isn’t. While I was on my journey of gaining weight, I had to ensure to not just stuff everything in my stomach to reach the end goal. While I was on my calorie surplus diet, I ensured to eat right to avoid health issues in the future.”
The actress also had a special shoot with body positive influencers to celebrate their bodies, imperfections and more.
