Actress Erica Fernandez has opened her mind about being physically ashamed when she starred in movies in South Indian cinema. In a new interview, Erica talked about how to wear ‘a lot of padding’ as ‘they like selfish women’. He recalled that time, she also had to wear thigh straps, which made her feel disrespectful.
Erica has starred in several regional films in 2013 such as Five Five (Tamil), Ninindale (Kannada), Kalipadam (Telugu) and in 2014 Virattu (Tamil). In the same year, the Telugu film Dekha was released. He also acted in the movie Vizhithiru (Tamil) in 2017.
In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Erica said, “I was so thin and ashamed that I was much thinner than they expected or the South Indian actress to be at the time. Shut me up. I wear a lot of pads and I feel so bad because it’s embarrassing as if you do not accept that person the way they are. Dump will be put everywhere. I had thigh straps and it was everywhere. I feel disrespected, it was like that, but it’s not like that anymore, I’m glad people got away with it. Now things are different, which is great.
Talking about her relationship status, Erica said that she is currently lonely. “It’s a kind of relationship I’ve had for about three and a half years. But, it’s not fruitful. People are commenting on why I did not mention who my boyfriend was at the time, because I did not mention anyone’s name yet, because it’s respectful. The world does not want to know that .That’s the respect I have shown .That’s how it should be.
