As per con­ven­tional beauty stan­dards, the uni­brow is un­flat­ter­ing. But it seems the uni­brow will soon be hav­ing its mo­ment among In­dian fash­ion­istas, and ac­tor Deepika Padukone would be the rea­son be­hind it. Her new look in her up­com­ing movie, in which she plays the beau­teous Rani Pad­ma­vati, has got ev­ery­one talk­ing. The mo­ment the look was out, Twit­terati gave her a thumbs-up for rock­ing it. In the west, model Sophia Had­ji­pan­teli is mak­ing the uni­brow move­ment hap­pen — her In­sta­gram page has more than 85,000 fol­low­ers, and peo­ple are ap­pre­ci­at­ing her strik­ing looks. Her aim is to cel­e­brate di­ver­sity. Talk­ing about this, beauty ex­pert Vidya Tikari says, “Celebri­ties are al­ways the fron­trun­ners of fash­ion and peo­ple fol­low what they do. Deepika looks stun­ning with her uni­brow. No doubt her fans who have uni­brows wouldn’t fix or hide it [now]. I’ve done make-up for Ka­jol and she never al­lowed me to touch her uni­brow, be­cause she em­braced her look.” Ka­jol had a uni­brow for many years af­ter en­ter­ing Bol­ly­wood, and be­came one of the top ac­tors without chang­ing her look. Celebrity make-up artist Ab­hi­jit Chanda also thinks that uni­brows are cool. “They look beau­ti­ful. Hav­ing said that, uni­brows only go with a cer­tain face type. And I think with Deepika Padukone rock­ing the look, it’s go­ing to be pop­u­lar among both men and women,” he says. How­ever, beauty ex­pert Aash­meen Mun­jal thinks that con­sid­er­ing the uni­brow as a thing of beauty is sub­jec­tive. He adds, “It may be beau­ti­ful for some, but for oth­ers it would still not be nor­mal.”
