As #SameeraReddy gears up to be a mommy for the second time, she launches her new campaign titled #ImperfectlyPerfect . With this stunning underwater photoshoot with her full grown tummy, she is celebrating body positivity and hailing the power that comes with motherhood. Being conscious of our bodies or embarassed about getting bigger during pregnancy and mommyhood should be the last thing bothering women. #beautiful #motherhood #secondborn #mommytobe #babybump #bodypositive #bigisbeautiful #Bollywood #Bollywoodmommies #celebmoms #swimmingpool #pool #underwaterphotography
Speaking about her maternity photoshoot Sameera Reddy has told Bombay Times, “Talking about my pregnancy and flaunting it has been liberating; it has given me a lot of confidence. I always wanted to do a photo-shoot like this, and I feel proud that I could pull it off by myself with support from friends and family. What got me thinking was, why was I being offered maternity shoots that were only coy, floral and subdued?” She further added, Why were they imagining a pregnant woman only covered in gowns? I could not connect with that idea. This photo-shoot is a manifestation of who I am and how proud I feel about my body and the shape it is in right now. I wanted to celebrate it and not be scared of people judging me.”
She also revealed that she will support those who feel they are being judged, “A few months ago, I realised the kind of pressure there is on social media to look stereotypically perfect. So, I want to start a #imperfectlyperfect campaign for every woman, who has been scrutinised for her body contours, flaunting her baby bump, or looking a certain way after having a baby. People don’t leave a chance to make you feel bad, I’m just doing something to make women like me feel great. This photo shoot is one step forward in that direction. Change begins at home, as they say.”
Sharing a before and after pregnancy pictures, Sameera had written, “I touched 102 Kgs in May 2015, the month Hans was born, and I’m not scared to admit it. It took me to the deepest darkest places in my head. My confidence shattered. And I couldn’t lose the weight for a year after because I was too scared to even step out. I disappeared because I didn’t have the strength to be judged by the world after all the years of being glam and fit on screen. But the beautiful part is that you can only hit your lowest low to know you can absolutely climb out of that hole. It’s a fight. A hard one.”
Here’s wishing easy-breezy last days of pregnancy to Sameera.
