Clothes, makeup or cos­metic surgery — fe­male ac­tors in Bol­ly­wood are al­ways un­der scru­tiny for their ap­pear­ances. And re­cent re­ports of Priyanka Cho­pra, Shruti Haasan, Sonal Chauhan and Aye­sha Takia, al­legedly go­ing un­der the knife, to look dif­fer­ent, has sparked a fresh de­bate. How­ever, the ac­tors have hit back at the trolls. On June 4, ac­tor Priyanka Cho­pra posted a close-up photo of her face on so­cial me­dia, and drew flak, as peo­ple com­mented that she had got a lip aug­men­ta­tion done. One fol­lower com­mented, “Why do they even get their lips done! They look so weird.?” Though Priyanka hasn’t com­mented on this in­stance, she has pre­vi­ously ad­dressed the is­sue of trolling and said, “I don’t care. I get so much love from peo­ple on so­cial me­dia – I fo­cus on that.”

Ac­tor Sonal Chauhan, who was ru­moured to have un­der­gone a lip job, says that celebri­ties are hu­man too, and can have their off-days. “When I read those re­ports, it was hi­lar­i­ous. You can have a bad make-up day. We are hu­mans and there could be days when you put on some ex­tra weight. But that does not mean that you have done some­thing to your lips. Hon­estly, look­ing at those pic­tures, I didn’t see any dif­fer­ence in how I look,” says Sonal.

Ear­lier this year, ac­tor Aye­sha Takia made head­lines when a pic­ture sug­gested that she had got Bo­tox and lip fillers done. Com­ment­ing on this, Aye­sha ear­lier told us, “I just laughed it off. These peo­ple, who say all sorts of stupid things while judg­ing us, are not even known by their names.”

Ac­tor Shruti Haasan, who was spot­ted with fuller lips, dur­ing the pro­mo­tion of her film Be­hen Hogi Teri, said, “It’s my face, my body. What I do with it, is no­body’s busi­ness.”
