Actor-comedian Kumail Nanjiani of Silicon Valley fame stunned everyone in town with his fit and fab physique transformation a few months back. The actor went all lean and muscly for his role of a superhero in the upcoming Marvel film, Eternals. He is playing a celestial being who is disguised on Earth as a Bollywood superstar, and hence the need for transformation. The actor has been posting pics of his workout and diet, showing about how he got transformer, but a recent picture of his got needless trolling. Eternals Actor Kumail Nanjiani Was Worried About Contributing to Hollywood's Unrealistic Beauty Standards With His Muscular Transformation Pics.

When the noise grew loud, fans and admirers of the star came out in support and called out this attack as 'racist'. They wonder why these kinds of accusations never came about when Chris Pratt or Chris Evans got jacked.

The Double Standards...

Body Shaming For Being Jacked?

Many Are Willing To Do This!

Wasn't Hemsworth Always Jacked?

We Have Short-Term Memory, Don't We All?

The Selective Criticism

Trolls Prefer Blondes!

Nanjiani, who is of Pakistani origins, is known for his vocal dissent towards the Trump-era politics. We are not sure if this is the reason of him getting targetting, or just pure racism. Meanwhile his film, Eternals, is heading to theatres (hopefully) in November 5, 2021, after its release was postponed from 2020 due to COVID-19 outbreak. The movie also stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Kit Harington, Gemma Chan, and Barry Keoghan.
