The clip has been viewed over five hundred,000 times. (Other sites have followed suit, with similar read counts).
"She may be a Bollywood actress and it's her duty to appear sensible and match," one video commenter sniped. Another steered she "needs to be told from individuals like Victoria Beckham who are back to size zero weeks once their delivery."

"Aishwarya is sort of a goddess. She is held up because the ideal of beauty and thus there's an expectation on her to appear good in any respect times," De told the paper. "The role models being held up are Angelina Jolie and Victoria Beckham . . .this whole business of trying desperately skinny 2 weeks once giving birth may be a Western import."
