Erica Fernandes has made an identity of hers by giving exceptional performances in shows like 'Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi,' 'Kasautii Zindagii Kay.'
She has even contributed to regional cinemas with films like 'Ninndale,' 'Vizhithiru,' and a few other films. Although Erica Fernandes has good exposure
she recalled her days of shooting for South films, where she was body-shamed and was asked to wear padding
In a conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Fernandes added that she was thin-shamed, as she was skinny compared to whatever the makers expected her to or a South actress needed to be at that point.
Erica asserted that they wanted voluptuous women, so they used to stuff her.
She used to wear a lot of padding and that made her feel bad as she wasn't comfortable with it. For her it was compromising on her identity, not accepting the person she is.
The actress continued that they used to put thigh pads everywhere.
Erica rose to fame with Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi. She also featured in the new season of Kasautii Zindagii Kay. She played Prerna in the Star Plus serial.
