5 Bollywood actresses who opted for cosmetic surgery


Celebrities often feel the pressure to constantly look gorgeous for their admirers and to remain in the limelight. Hence, they have been seeking solace in cosmetics surgeries. Many of our Bollywood actors have also gone under the knife to enhance their features and look better on-screen. While the method worked for some, it spelled disaster for other.

Here’s a look at a few celebs who took the cosmetic route to transform their looks for better or for worse.

Sofia Hayat: The former model-actress of British-Asian descent has been recently in the news for leaving behind glamour and turning into a catholic nun. Sofia, who has starred in a couple of movies in ‘blink and miss’ roles and participated in reality show ‘Bigg Boss 7’ is known to have undergone numerous plastic surgeries for her nose, lips and bosoms. The starlet-turned-nun recently revealed that she had her breast implants removed and also showed it to the world at a press conference.

Anushka Sharma: The actress who impressed audience with her girl-next-door looks in her debut ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ allegedly opted for plastic surgery to shape her lips. It came to notice in 2014 when Anushka appeared on chat chow ‘Koffee with Karan’ with fuller lips. She kept denying the cosmetic intervention, but recently opened up on her lip job saying that she is a “human and not perfect.” But she said that her fuller lips were the result of a "lip enhancing tool" and "make-up techniques" she used for her role in ‘Bombay Velvet’.

Kangana Ranaut: The three-time National Award winning actress became an instant hit in Bollywood with her debut film ‘Gangster’ in 2006 and over the years has become one of the highest paid actresses of the industry. But she too could not keep herself away from using artificial methods to enhance her looks. Kangana allegedly got a lip job and breast augmentation to look sexier.   

Rakhi Sawant: The item girl and drama queen of Bollywood has always been upfront about her plastic surgeries. Rakhi has allegedly experimented a lot with her body. She pulled off silicone implants to augment her to breast, underwent nose and lip reconstruction to shaping the jaw line as well. It is said that due to her cosmetic transformation, at an event, people refused to believe that she was indeed Rakhi Sawant. 

Koena Mitra: This model actress with a hot body and sexy moves entertained in movies like ‘Musafir’ and ‘Apna Sapna Money Money’ among others, besides item songs and music videos. After Koena got noticed in Bollywood, she decided to go for rhinoplasty (nose surgery). Unfortunately, the cosmetic technique went awry and the botched-up nose job caused her much trauma. After the surgery, the nasal bones started swelling up and as a result Koena’s face was disfigured. She had to undergo many more surgeries to rectify the mistake.
