Rajkummar Rao addresses rumors of undergoing cosmetic surgery

Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao has recently addressed speculation about his appearance, denying any involvement in cosmetic surgery while acknowledging past filler work.

The discussion around his transformed appearance arose after attending Diljit Dosanjh’s concert, sparking debates and rumors among fans regarding potential plastic surgery. In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Rao clarified, stating, “I have not done any plastic surgery, guys. It is just a bad photo. That is just a touch-up photo. I wish I had such clean and flawless skin because it looks like that.”

Regarding a previous cosmetic procedure, Rao explained, “About eight years ago, I did some filler work on my chin because I wanted to look confident. My dermatologist suggested it, and I did. Do I feel confident after that? Yes. Have I done better films after that? It has changed the perception.”

While acknowledging the role of appearance in acting, Rao emphasized his stance on plastic surgery, deeming it costly and time-consuming. He stated, “If somebody wants to boost their confidence and the science is available, then why not? But no to plastic surgery.”

Despite the controversy, Rao remains focused on his upcoming projects, including Mr and Mrs Mahi opposite Janhvi Kapoor, scheduled for a May 31 release, along with Vicky Vidya Ka Woh Wala Video and Srikanth in the pipeline.

The pressure to conform to narrow beauty standards is a global issue in celebrity culture, contributing to individuals seeking cosmetic procedures like plastic surgery. From colorism to fat shaming, societal pressures often drive such decisions. Moreover, advancements in medical technology have made cosmetic procedures more accessible and less invasive, contributing to their popularity.

However, the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery should be carefully considered, as it carries risks. Individuals often opt for these procedures to address physical insecurities or boost self-confidence, but it’s important to weigh the implications and potential consequences beforehand.
