On Friday, she took to her social media account and shared a picture sporting a black leotard. "I have come to realise that beauty is a different kind of burden as you keep growing. When I was younger, it was more of a longing to be conventional and check all the boxes/fit-in kind of a burden," she wrote.
"Now,that I am almost 30... It is more an unapologetic, rebellious kind of a burden. Either way, this whole damn idea of beauty is a burden," she added alongside the image.
The designer said the photograph was taken on a mobile phone and was "completely unedited".
"Which is important in the age of severe retouching. It is fully dedicated to my trainer Vilayat Husain - thank you for making me somewhat strong, again. I strive to be the strongest person you have trained, ever. Both mentally and physically," she added.
