Kriti Sanon says She is Not a ‘Plastic Doll’

"I can’t do anything about it."

Kriti Sanon has opened up on being criticised for her appearance, with critics pointing out that her “nostrils flare up” and she has a “gummy smile”.

Kriti also revealed that she was body-shamed with someone asking her to take her “waist a little more in”.

She responded to critics and said she’s “not a plastic doll” and has never felt the need to change.

Kriti Sanon made her debut in Bollywood with Sabbir Khan’s Heropanti in 2014.

She starred in the romance-action film alongside Tiger Shroff and Prakash Raj.

Since 2014, Kriti has featured in several films including Dilwale, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Luka Chuppi and Housefull 4.

In a recent interview, Kriti Sanon said: “There had been times when I was told to line my lips to look fuller. It didn’t make sense to me.

“I did try it once. I was also told that my nostrils flare up a little bit when I smile.

“So, yes there will be criticism from everywhere.

“When I smile or laugh, sometimes they do but that’s normal. I am not a plastic doll.”

She added that she “just never felt the need to change anything”.

The Panipat actress shared: “People told me ‘You have a gummy smile’. That I am born with, I can’t do anything about it.

“These are little things that people say indirectly like ‘change this’. I feel like those things everyone hears.

“Someone was telling me now it’s not the pressure, but I think the pressure is increasing with all these Instagram filters and everything coming, everyone wants to be perfect all the time.

“So, I have gone through that, heard things.

“Someone asked me to take my waist a little more in. Sometimes random people also say things.

“You have to make sure that you are not listening to just everybody.”

In 2021, Kriti Sanon was seen in Hum Do Hamare Do and Mimi.

Kriti has many projects in the pipeline including Adipurush with Prabhas.

She also has Ganapath with Tiger Shroff, Bhediya with Varun Dhawan, Bachchan Pandey with Akshay Kumar, and Shehzada with Kartik Aaryan.

Bachchan Pandey is rumoured to be a remake of Jigarthanda which was directed by filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj.

According to reports, the sets of Bachchan Pandey recently caught fire.

Fortunately, the fire was controlled and no one was harmed during the mishap.

Kriti Sanon will also be a part of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s next film – the title of which is yet to be revealed.
