Watch | You are beautiful: Radhika Apte has a very powerful message for every girl

dna webdesk: BLUSH put up a heart-rending video on YouTube which shows Badlapur actress Radhika Apte advising her younger self. Talking about beauty, body image and conduct, she tells girls to stop worrying and has an important message for all of them – you are beautiful.

She stays in the video: “Apni zindagi ke chhote bade hisse kiraye pe mat dena.”

Who decided what the perfect body type is? Or the perfect pout. Who set the rules of ‘moral social behaviour’? Who defined, ‘beautiful’? This edition of Unblushed, featuring acclaimed actor Radhika Apte, questions what is ‘normal’ or ‘acceptable’ for an Indian woman: What is a ‘normal’ body, what is an ‘acceptable’ decibel of laughter, what is ‘girl-like’ behaviour. A 4 minute advice that turns into an affirmation of the self, we attempt at reaching at a more ‘real’ definition of beauty. Beautiful is messy, imperfect, ordinary and peculiar. Beautiful, is what you decide it should be. Find, your beautiful.
