Sonakshi Sinha has teamed up with Mansi Dhanak and Vinav Bhanawat from Mission Josh to start a series of videos titled #FullStopToCyberBullying. As part of their campaign, the actress recently partook in a conversation with Nirali Bhatia, a cyberpsychologist, Mission Josh’s Mansi and Vinav, and a 19-year-old girl, Moira Sachdev, who was bullied and body-shamed to such an extent that she was driven to attempt suicide. In fact, so moved was our Dabangg girl by the conversation, that she has shared a video about it, too, on her official Instagram handle.
Rendering a meaningful message against cyber-bullying, Sonakshi Sinha said in her video, “ Love yourself, be comfortable in your own skin, be kind to each other, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, all these phrases seem so profound and inspiring. Today, when most of our contact with the world is virtual, even self-esteem is quantified by likes, shares, comments, followers. What people think of us, do they approve of our appearance, opinions, choices are not a matter of a private conversation, but it is out there for the world to see. Few seconds: utna hi lagta hai na type ugly, fat, thin, dumb, talentless, useless, and all sorts of nasty things. Those few seconds can leave someone scarred for life.”
She added, “Recently, I spoke to someone, a very sweet, young, beautiful girl who was body-shamed to such an extent that she thought ending her life was a better option. Yes, you heard that right. Take a minute, just a minute to think of what impact your actions can have before sending that comment, you might save a life.”

The next time if any of you think of dropping mean comments on someone’s post on social media without any rhyme or reason, just because you can and there’s no one to check you, perhaps try remembering these words from Sonakshi, who makes total sense, by the way.
