Actress and comedian Vidyullekha Raman is the daugter of actor Mohan Raman who started her film careeer with Gautham Menon's Neethana Enn Ponvasantham in 2012. She played Santhanam's love interest and their comedy scenes were highly acclaimed at that time.

When Vidyu first entered the industry, she was a plus-sized woman who made the audience laugh with her comedy mostly involving her body size and the way she looked.

‪When you are a female actor who predominantly does comedy, people are so quick to assume you can’t look or feel sexy. Well, this is me saying “I can.” ??‬ HMUA - @vithyahairandmakeup Photography - @soozanapvan @ljeyash Assisted by @susheebeauty

In 2017, she got tired of the body shaming and decide to do a glamorous photoshoot proving that comedy actresses could look and feel 'sexy' as well. While she received some backlash for her attempt, many complimented her bold move and intention to empower plus-sized women.

Fast forward to 2020, Vidyu Raman has unveiled her new avatar as a fit and healthy woman. It was not clear when she started her weight loss journey but according to her Instagram posts, it seems like she began clean eating and healthy lifestyle habits back in February 2019.

Portion control, eating clean & daily exercise - follow this and you will see results. I’m down 6kgs.. still a long way to go. I used to think dieting was frustrating and depressing (since I’m such a foodie). I don’t diet. I have just changed my lifestyle and my relationship with food. Now I love what I eat, my energy levels are up, I realised I’m surprisingly good at cooking (hehe) and I FEEL CLEAN. ???? ? - @dsabesh #Brunching #Superfoods #MexicanSalad #Avacados #PowerSmoothie #WeightLossJourney

After 8 weeks into her weight loss journey, Vidyu lost about 9.5kg. She looked so energetic and happy on her posts. When asked what's her secret, her response was on point:

“What is the secret”? Get up. Move your ass. Stay consistent about it. You will see results. It’s as simple as that. #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #10kgsdown

Like most celebrities, Vidyu Raman swears by clean eating and hitting the gym to get the results. She explained that there is no secret potion or pill to lose weight in her recent post. Take a look:

Fake confidence vs. ACTUAL confidence. When I was overweight a frequently asked question by everyone to me was “how are you so confident?”. In retrospect, was I? Or did I just come to terms with the fact that I will be obese all my life? Today I am actually confident of myself because I did the unthinkable and changed my lifestyle and habits. I have come to realise that if you put your mind to it, anything is possible. Sounds cliché, right? But it’s the truth!! You need to be disciplined, workout 6 times a week and follow a balanced diet. There is no secret potion or pill to make the result happen! Just pure hard work. Nothing in life comes easy but when you see result, it’s worth all the sweat and tears. Recorded weight as on 20/06/20 - 68.2kgs #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation

Here are some of her inspiring posts throughout the weight loss journey:

In 2 weeks you’ll feel it, in 4 weeks you’ll see it, in 8 weeks you’ll hear it! Today marks exactly 8 weeks of me getting into a better lifestyle of fitness and taking my health seriously. Started off at 85.5KGS and today 76.0KGS ????

Get stronger every single day. ??Deadlifted 80 Kgs

Sometimes the scale will not show you the numbers you want to see. Never get dejected by that.. for me I get motivated by inch loss. From a UK size 18 to now a UK 12 - that’s growth. Not the number on the scale. The numbers will drop slowly and steadily. Be persistent. Left pic taken May 13th 2018 in London.
