Bollywood actress Shruti Haasan has recently talked about her experience of plastic surgery.
In an interview with a local news source, the Welcome actress was asked what encouraged her to get plastic surgery done. She said, “I think there is and there isn’t. There was a time I listened to the pressure. As far as my nose surgery goes, it’s a choice I made, even after my first film was done because my nose was broken. I didn’t like the way it felt. I didn’t like the way it looked. It was a personal choice. Nobody asked me to fix it.”
She said that she was receiving several comments such as “your face is very Western, it’s very sharp, and it’s very masculine.” She added, “I was constantly hearing this and I did do non-invasive, temporary procedures, which I have been very open about.”
Shruti said that she does not encourage plastic surgery, it was a person’s choice. She explained her opinion in the interview, “If there are any actresses telling you they haven’t done it, they are blatantly lying because people’s faces don’t change that much. But it’s just something that I wanted to talk about. I don’t propagate it. What I’m trying to say is… It could be something from coloring your hair, like women who are Indian who feel they need to bleach their skin or dye their hair blonde or wear blue contact lenses…It’s the same thing, right?”
“You don’t need to fit into anything, you do what you have to do. If a woman in her 40s feels she wants Botox because it makes her feel better, that’s her choice and if she feels that this is not what she wants, that is her choice too. I felt I should be honest about my journey.”
