In Hauterrfly’s The Male Feminist, singer Neha Bhasin recalled her days in Viva and how it made her struggle against Image Dysmorphia. Neha said, “I was not aware of it before joining the Viva band. It is a very strong feeling of hatred towards yourself and the way you look, and it is mostly because of what others think about you. Also, it is a downside to being a public figure as you are objectified at a young age and there is a lot of pressure too.”

Neha Bhasin also recalled the time in Viva and said, “We used to earn 25,000 each and were measured every day. We were given 5000 increments only if we collectively lost weight. That was the time when the managers put me on fat pills.” The singer further added, “The fat pills apparently caused me suicidal thoughts and depression”
