Whether it's Bhumi Pednekar, who grew up hating her looks; Vijay Varma, actively reducing the stigma and normalizing his vitiligo; or Richa Chadha, calling out the hypocrisy of those who once criticized actors' appearances in their articles but are now vocal about #BodyPositivity— actors have often discussed in interviews with The Quint about how they navigate evolving standards and societal pressures surrounding beauty.

Here's a compilation of all the interviews.
