Popular designer Masaba Gupta says she has come to realize that beauty is a different kind of burden, which keeps changing with age. Masaba, who is the daughter of veteran actress Neena Gupta and former West Indies batsman Vivian Richards, shared a photograph of herself sporting a black leotard on Instagram recently.

"I have come to realize 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. 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 wrote alongside an image she posted of herself. 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. - IANS
