In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Erica stated that she felt very bad and disrespected when she had to put padding everywhere including her thighs. She felt uncomfortable. However, she did mention that times have changed now and people are not expecting women to be volumptous. The actress was quoted saying, “I was thin-shamed a lot and I was very skinny compared to whatever they expected me to or a South actress needed to be at that point, so they wanted voluptuous women so they used to stuff me. I used to wear a lot of padding and I used to feel very-very bad because it’s uncomfortable like you’re not accepting the person the way they are.” Also Read – Trending TV News Today: Umar Riaz tops Bigg Boss trends over Sidharth Shukla, Ruslaan Mumtaz and family test COVID positive and more
