There is hardly any celebrity who speaks up about cosmetic surgeries they’ve got done. But Shruti Haasan is not one of them. She has always been open about the surgeries that she’s got. Opening up about them again, she said that there was a time when she used to listen to the pressure of people who told her she looked a certain way.
While speaking to Hindustan Times, she asked if there is a pressure from the industry to look a certain way, she said there is and there isn’t and that there was a time that she listened to the pressure. Talking about her nose surgery she said it was a decision that she made even after she had done her first film because her nose was broken. She said she didn’t like the way it felt and looked. She said nobody asked me to fix it and it was a personal choice.
When it came to fillers… They said, ‘Shruti’s face is very Western, it’s very sharp, it’s very masculine.’ I was constantly hearing this and I did do non-invasive, temporary procedures, which I have been very open about.
She clarified that she was not promoting any kind of plastic surgery and said that it was someone’s personal choice.
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 colouring 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, I want Botox because it makes me feel better, that’s her choice. And if she feels, this is not what I want, that is her choice. I felt I should be honest about my journey.
We love Shruti for being so open about stuff that women, especially celebrities shy away from. You go, girl!
