Successful entrepreneur Vineeta Singh who became a household name with her stint in Shark Tank India was recently seen on Chetan Bhagat’s talk show. During the conversation, Vineeta talked about the trolling that she had to face post Shark Tank India. She also added that now she knows how to deal with them.
Vineeta said, “It has been super eye-opening and I am very lucky for that as there is little evolution. Unfortunately, this is a thing. Your appearance, as a woman, is given so much importance. Even on Instagram, I’ve achieved so much in life, but when I post something, 95% of the comments are about the way you look. It’s one of those things. It’s a by-product of being a girl.”
She added, “Now that I’m the CEO of a company, I feel that even now, people are only commenting things like, ‘You don’t look good enough’, or ‘You started a makeup company because you look so bad’. Whatever you do, people will find a way to bring you down. I’ve worked really hard to get to where I am, I’ve struggled, I’ve suffered, and irrespective of what industry it is, it’s something that is well-deserved. But now also, the way you look is very important, especially for a woman. Men can get away with thoda sa..”
Vineeta also talked about makeup and shared that applying make-up for a girl or woman is about self-love and feeling happy about herself. She said, “At the end of the day, girls use makeup to please themselves rather than others and if it makes them feel good, it shouldn’t make anyone else unhappy.”
For the unversed, Shark Tank India is coming back with its second season.
