Bollywood shrinks to 0


Used to be, Bollywood actresses were curvy. (Like it used to be here, come to think of it.) But alas, the U.K.’s Telegraph reports that Bollywood is shrinking:

“There’s been a lot of changes in the last decade, whether it’s in modelling or in Bollywood,” said Venu Hirani, a nutritionist and fitness consultant in Mumbai.

“Today, the basic requirement for someone wanting to go into either is that they need to be a (US) size zero,” she said.

And check this out:

“Now I have more and more of the younger generation who don’t really need to lose weight but tell me they need to knock off five kilogrammes (11 pounds).”

Argh! No, Bollywood, noooo!
