What are you even eating? When Nivin Pauly was body shamed

Actor Nivin Pauly is currently busy shooting for the Malayalam flick 'Padavettu' helmed by Liju Krishna. The movie's third schedule of the shoot was wrapped recently and the team had a small celebration. 

Director Liju Krishna was speaking to the team after completing the third schedule. While speaking about Nivin Pauly's efforts for the film, director Liju Krishna slammed those who body shame the talented actor. Liju said that Nivin Pauly's efforts to gain more bodyweight for the movie 'Padavettu' are highly commendable. 

Lijo Krishna's words:

"The biggest part of this movie is Nivin Chettan. I approached him with the movie's story nearly a year ago. He liked the story and agreed to fo the project. At that time, Nivin Chettan had gained weight for another movie. I told him that he will have to gain more weight for 'Padavettu'. At a time when Nivin was planning to get back in shape, he agreed to sign my project and increased more kilos. He, in fact, knew that the movie's shoot will take really long to complete. 

During the filming of 'Padavettu', many people tried to meet and talk to Nivin Chetan. And the first thing they have to ask him is "Mone I watch all your movies and I like it. But, look at you! you have gained so much weight! 

Once an aged lady came to our shooting location with some specially prepared tea for Nivin Pauly, who warmly welcomed her. After serving the tea, she said, "What a weight gain is this son? Why can't you shed a few kilos? ..what are you even eating?" Nivin has been frequently hearing such comments from the public. He has heard many such comments from many places. All this has been heard by him as part of the efforts of Nivin Chettan for the film. Nivin Chettan has forgotten his own body to act in this movie."
