"A doctor can give you what God hasn’t!"
Whether they actually admit to it or not, many Bollywood superstars have gone under the knife to change their physical appearance.
Changing in front of us onscreen, stars have altered their imperfections and enhanced their assets to become the glamorous idols they are known as today.
From Botox, to lips fillers and even nose jobs, cosmetic surgery has become increasingly popular in Bollywood, especially amongst the female actresses.
DESIblitz looks at some of the most dramatic surgical transformations in Bollywood, including the good, the bad, and the indescribable.
Anushka debuted alongside Shahrukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) as the fresh faced beauty with natural good looks.
However after working alongside Katrina Kaif in Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), it wasn’t long before we saw her lips change dramatically, to possibly look more like Katrina’s full lips.
After appearing on Koffee with Karan, the Internet exploded with fans making comments about the obvious change to her lips.
However despite being mocked for the alleged bad lip job, it didn’t stop Anushka from dating one of India’s most eligible bachelors, cricketing star Virat Kohli.
Rakhi entered Bollywood as the sultry item girl, whose good looks and toned figure wowed the audience.
Though she always opted for dramatic looks, her transformation over the years was clearly more than just makeup and ageing.
Once famously saying: “A doctor can give you what God hasn’t,” Rakhi made her opinion on cosmetic surgery very clear!
Though she may never verbally admit to all her surgical procedures, pictures do not hide how much her face has changed over the years.
Unfortunately, unlike other stars that may have benefited from cosmetic surgery, it appears that Rakhi may have gone a little too far, and this may be the reason why we no longer see her as an item girl.
Shruti is amongst one of the few Bollywood stars who have openly admitted to having cosmetic surgery.
Though she debuted in Luck (2009) with her natural features, it didn’t take long for her to go under the knife and have a nose job.
When she graced the silver screen again after surgery in Ramaiya Vastavaiya (2013), she looked incredible!
Her new nose, and now possibly enhanced lips, combined have completely changed the face of Shruti Haasan.
Timeless beauty Sri Devi has won the hearts of millions of people across India, with her stunning smile and enchanting eyes.
But even one of Bollywood’s treasured beauties has had some surgical assistance to look that good!
Before achieving superstardom Sri Devi had quite a large nose, but over the years, with possibly multiple nose jobs, she has successfully changed her nose from large and round to small and slim.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra
Bollywood bombshell Shilpa has one of the best figures in the industry; her luscious locks and dazzling smile have earned her the title of one of the sexiest female stars in India.
But there was a time when this superstar was an awkward looking teenager, with a very large nose.
Over the course of her career, Shilpa’s nose became progressively thinner, making it clear that more than contouring was used to change the shape of her nose.
Now with amazing styling and a much slimmer nose, Shilpa has transformed herself from a duckling into a beautiful swan.
Kangana grabbed the industry’s attention from her unorthodox roles in Gangster (2006) and Woh Lamhe (2006).
Beautiful and talented she always sizzled onscreen, however after numerous films, and escalating success, it seemed apparent that Kangana had undergone breast enlargement surgery.
Flaunting her new assets in a bikini in Rascals (2011), it was clear that Kangana was proud of her new figure!
The new voluptuous Kangana continues to flaunt her new physique in figure hugging bodysuits and sexy swimwear.
Bollywood’s Barbie doll Katrina has always been famous for her beautiful face and figure.
Having earlier working as a model, it wasn’t long before she was offered roles in Bollywood.
With a dazzling smile and toned figure, she looked stunning from her debut as a main lead actress alongside Akshay Kumar in Namastey London (2007).
Despite having natural beauty, it seems that Katrina has further enhanced some of her features with surgical assistance.
Though she hasn’t openly stated it herself, the visible increase in the size of her lips from thin to full and pouting, suggest the assistance of a lip job, with many also speculating a possible nose job at some point in her career.
The changing faces of these celebrities show the wonders of cosmetic surgery!
Big lips and smaller noses are the trend in Bollywood, and it seems that the more famous these stars get, the more surgery they want.
However, where some stars improved their appearance with surgery, others have ended in disaster, showing that there can be too much of a good thing!
