Sameera Reddy and her husband Akshay Varde are currently expecting the arrival of their second child. Sameera has been enjoying her pregnancy and flaunting her growing bump with stylish and colourful shot on Instagram.

Unfortunately, instead of being celebrated during such an important time in her life, Sameera has been on the receiving end of hate comments and online trolls who were body-shaming her. In her latest post on Instagram, Sameera wrote a powerful message to the trolls who were shaming her by saying, “Her soul was too deep to explore by those who always swam in the shallow end. This is my answer to anyone who feels uncomfortable with me enjoying my pregnant belly #liveandletlive”.

Sameera had her last big screen outing in 2012 with the film Tezz. She married businessman Akshai Varde in 2014 and had their first child in 2015. Sameera has been vocal about how the industry and people have unreal expectations of celebrities who get pregnant.

In an interviews with IANS, she said, “I got pregnant in just a couple of months after my marriage. The game plan was to have the pregnancy and bounce back and getting in the limelight again. But I have never experienced anything like that. It was just the opposite. It was the worst case scenario of what I could’ve imagined in terms of my body and the way I fell apart as a person because the pregnancy was very tough for me”.
