Being a celebrity comes with its own set of pros and cons, especially for the actresses who are constantly under the scanner about their looks and dress sense. Many of them enter the film industry as simple girls, young girls, however due to constant pressure to keep up with their contemporaries, a number of female stars undergo changes with regards to their looks and style, sometimes for the better and sometimes it doesn't seem to work out well. Here's a look at Top 10 Bollywood makeovers – both good and bad.
Anushka Sharma: This bubby pretty face made her B-Town debut with 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' and won peoples hearts with her performance in 'Band Baaja Baaraat.' However, Anushka Sharma's recent appearances have shocked many.
The change in her lips, is clearly evident. The actress has been at the receiving end of much backlash with people saying she has spoiled her face with her bee-stung look. But, she denies going under the knife and claims the change is due to some 'lip-enhancing tools.'
Shilpa Shetty: Known to have one of the most amazing bodies in the industry, this yummy mummy has indeed come a long way. Though she was never considered beautiful, Shilpa Shetty had a problem with her nose and underwent plastic surgery. The actress also boldly admitted to it and we must say she looked beautiful in films like 'Pardesi Babu' and 'Dhadkan'. Even after the birth of her son, Shilpa Shetty lost no time in regaining her sexy figure, which she flaunts both in sexy saris and western outfits.
Vidya Balan: This national award winning actress first gained popularity for her role in television series 'Hum Paanch'. After which she was seen in Bengali film 'Bhalo Theko'. Bollywood film 'Parineeta' marked her B-Town debut. In her initial years, Vidya Balan received a lot of flak for her sense of style. However, she shunned her critics when designer Sabyaschi became her all time favourite. The Cannes Film Festival last year, saw some of the actress' best ethnic looks till date.
Karisma Kapoor: This Kapoor lass made her debut with 'Prem Qaidi' in 1991 and was seen in the most disastrous onscreen avatars with her trademark bushy eyebrows and big hair. However, it all changed with 'Dil To Pagal Hai', when Karisma rocked her super-hot bod in the love story. Now, despite not being seen onscreen, Karisma is known for her sleek, sophisticated style and her minimal fresh-look makeup.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: The former beauty queen had caught everybody's attention when she appeared in a cola commercial in 1993. The following year the blue-eyed actress was crowned Miss World and has since been seen in various avatars. However, the most-talked about has been the baby weight that the young mommy piled on during her pregnancy, making it hard to compare her to the sexy Dhoom girl she once was. But, after much hard work, Aishwarya Rai flaunted her curves at the Cannes Film Festival 2013, looking absolutely fabulous.
Priyanka Chopra: This beauty queen stormed into the industry after winning the Miss World pageant in 2000, by making her debut in 'Humraaz'. There's no denying that Priyanka Chopra looks phenomenally different from her initial industry days, which could have been due to good-grooming techniques. The actress has also ditched the garish loud makeup for more subtle tones that work well with her skin tone. Lucky to possess one of the most envied figures in the industry, this starlet doesn’t shy away from showing off her body in crop tops and bodycon dresses.
Kajol: Always seen as a bit of a tomboy in her younger days, Kajol was one of our most-loved actresses onscreen especially when paired with Shah Rukh Khan. She mostly preferred to wear desi creations back-in-the-day, however that did little to keep out the constant criticism that she actress received for her poor choice of wardrobe. But things have changed since her comeback, with Kajol having lost weight and being named as one of the most stylish onscreen moms today, seen both in western and Indian designer wear.
Rani Mukerji: There was a time when Bengali beauty Rani Mukerji ruled the industry with films like 'Ghulam'and 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'. But, it's hard to imagine the actress who last seen in 'Talaash', as the same girl who played the lead in 'Biyer Phool' and 'Raja Ki Ayegi Baraat'. The light-eyed beauty is still stunning and we do hope we get to see more of her onscreen in the coming years.
Madhuri Dixit: Bollywood's dancing queen Madhuri Dixit has come a long way when it comes to fashion and style. Having always been one of the most beautiful women in the industry, Madhuri who recently made her comeback into films with 'Dedh Ishqiya' looks beautiful even today and has a had a whole lot of positive feedback for her lovely saris that she flaunts on 'Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa'. However, we do wish she would change things up with her hair.
Sridevi: This timeless diva is actually the synonym to 50 going on 30. With outstanding comeback in 'English Vinglish', Sridevi has been at her fashionable best, making appearances in Hervé Legers, Guccis, Sabyasachis, Manish Malhotras and more. The actress is a walking talking example of the saying that age is after all just a number!
