    How dare she comment on south actresses.
    Ileana,rakool,Samantha, kajal agarwal,………………..so on actresses in south are
    Very slim than her and also they have good following in the south. She better watch her words before saying. She don’t have any right to comment on south actresses in such a way.
    She might have been asked to increase her weight because of the script’s demand. It doesn’t mean every film needs such things.
    She should have watched at least some south Indian movies before commenting.

    Why does anyone give any importance to what Bigg Boss contestants say. If they weren’t insignificant losers they wouldn’t be on the show.

    one thing north has to learn is that south states are more educated, developed and contribute to the country in terms taxes and resources. North especially hindi belt live on govt subsidies and freebies but act as if they are the best and have high attitude complex. If south stops making movies then bollywood is no where because 75% of them are borrowed from south. Ask Mr. Khan about his recent hits and where they came from.

    I used to watch Hina Khans’s daily soap..I always used to wonder why does her face look constipated when she is crying…
    Please observe….She looks ugly when she cries.

    I do not like Heena.
    I honestly don’t see how Heena’s comment is offensive. She isn’t talking about all South Indians. She is talking about some South Indian actresses and how they are mostly curvy. I agree that her way of describing them wasn’t the best calling them “thul thula”. She is not calling them ugly or degrading them. She did not call them fat. She is just saying that in the South, they have a different preference. Plus, don’t people always talk about how Bollywood prefers skinny and fair skinned actresses. This doesn’t mean all Bollywood actresses are skinny and fair skinned obviously. Similarly, Heena just made an observation and told them about how she was also told to gain weight. I feel like these days people just get mad over anything in an attempt to defend “us” against “them”. If you really need something to fight over, Puneesh’s comments are offensive/on the edge of being offensive for the content you might want to fight over.

    I believe she is right here as south Industry never gave importance to a size zero body until some flop actresses in Bollywood shifted base to south and started acting there. And mind you most of them still can’t act!
    Most South Indian actors are in the business for their acting chops and not for how they look! And that is how it should be! I’m proud to be from South Indian coz our actors know to act unlike Bollywood! And south industry does prefer curvaceous woman! Someone who says otherwise is blind!
    The way Hina expressed it was not right.. she comes across very animated!

    She has no talent nor has gud looks to boast about.All she has done is a single crappy serial and such audacity to degrade others who are actually film stars. Think she dosent know that all their celebrated heroines are actually from south..Aish,deepika,anushka,sridevi,hemamalini,rekha,shilpa shetty,Vidya Balan…even PC has roots in the south.
    Actually this should be an eyeopener for directors and producers who want to import north girls to our cinemas..

    Typical north indian attitude, they act like they are all miss universes. When actually most beautiful bollywood actresses have all been south indian, rekha hema aridevi aishwarya deepika to name a few. Hina khan is absolutely talentless and managed for 8 years in boring tv show with just one expression, she thinks she has a right to criticise anyone, big headed loser

      So the best way to prove someone wrong is by saying that the most beautiful actresses have been from your region? You are essentially playing the South is better/North is better game yourself.

        Lol this is called showing you the mirror. When northies can go on national television and talk about south indians in condescending manner, why cant we south indians show our superiority. Its a fact majority of bollywood’s iconic actresses have always been from south. Our girls are extremely beautiful and talented, whatever size shape or colorl

          How is this showing someone the mirror? You just using the word “northies” is condescending in itself. How can it be a fact that the majority of hollywood’s iconic actresses have been from the south? That is an opinion not a fact. I have nothing against South Indians or South Indian actresses, but claiming that South Indian actresses are the most beautiful is pretty much doing the same thing that you are blaming “northies” of doing. It isn’t like somebody is being discriminated against and you have to defend them. Women in general are beautiful and talented!

            Well then ask anyone as to who have been the iconic actresses of bollywood from the beginning, and you will find that most of them will be from south.You are trying to act like you have been victimsed just becauae i said we are more beautiful. But the fact is that the most bollywood directors regularly
            scout heroines from south or even east because of our strong classical dance drama culture and overall personality. Vyjayantimala, Padmini, Ragini, Waheeda rehman were renowned for their dance and classical beauty. I know its a hard pill to swallow, but its a fact. Lol

    I neither like her nor hate her..i also find her very aggressive and loud most of time..sometimes, she is right too in BB..but, I think she can express her opinion about anything..don’t we talk about random things in our house without thinking about political correctness..they are also staying in a house and cannot be diplomatic all the time..i have watched lot of south movies with subtitles..i also feel that female actors are not treated properly and are used mostly as glamorous thing only..this is case in lot of Bollywood films too..there is no need to get offended about everything ..she talked about her experience..Hansika herself was a child actor and gained lot of weight suddenly to look very mature..dont make it south versus Bollywood..both the industries have issues regarding female actors

    She herself will not be considered thin by Bollywood..look at the irony there!

    she didnt say anything wrong! she didnt want to put weight and thats her choice. and we all know south actresses are little bulky. People just need to react.

      However they are…they are talented and beautiful. If you want to watch stick figures go watch some fashion shows, not movies. Movies are made about people, not models.

      Who told you that all sounth indian actresses are plump? Have you seen Manj Warrier, Asin, Nayantara, Mamta Mohandas, Hansika Motwani, Tamannah Bhatia, Kajal Agarwal, and veteran actresses like Sobhana, Sumalata etc.. Please don’t see just the item numbers in Tamil / Telugu movies and tell that all heroines in South are plump!!!
      #Getyourfactsright!!!

        You have to put things in context. While some of the actresses you mentioned are not plump, they are considered heavier than a typical Bollywood actress. Of course, there is no standard of beauty that our society should or needs adheres to. Nobody (except for Puneesh) called them unattractive. Hina was just saying that she was asked to put on weight for a role. Is she not allowed to giver her narrative? What if a South Indian actress talked about how she was told to lose weight to be in Bollywood? Would you still be as mad? I don’t even like Heena. To me this issue isn’t about what Heena thinks, but rather the defending “us” and what is “ours” against “them” and “theirs”. This also an issue of what people think is hurtful and take as an insult. Hina definitely didn’t put her words in the best way, but she wasn’t degrading anybody.

    She has done a single daily soap. But she is portraying everything as if she is a huge star of Bollywood, that those 2 heroes came all the way to Mumbai to plead this crap to act. I am from South but I am a huge fan of movies be it bollywood or south. Without knowing anything about industry, you can’t pass comments like that. After all even you are in the same ‘acting industry’. I used to hate her because of her irritating serial, her attitude in kathron ki khiladi. Now I hate her more.
