Did Parineeti Chopra just body shame her friend? Twitterati calls out hypocrisy

Parineeti Chopra's birthday wish to a friend has become a matter of much debate on social media. The actress, who has herself been a victim of body- shaming, is being trolled on Twitter after her birthday wish video for a friend asking him to become thin went viral.

The Ishaqzaade actress has often spoken about being okay with one's body weight. The actress had earlier said to PTI, "This (body shaming) will soon become a past. Everything comes in phases. If you yourself are not comfortable about your body, do something about it. If you are comfortable, let it be. Other people have no right to comment anyway." In an Instagram post she had stressed on the importance of being healthy and not thin.

Though the message seems to be in jest, Twitterati has judged Parineeti as a hypocrite and a body-shamer. Here's what they had to say about it.
