Has Richa Chadda had Plastic Surgery?
The 30-year-old actress has successfully built a career in Bollywood. Despite her tough beginnings, she was able to gain attention courtesy of her talent and remarkable presence on the screen. The actress herself has revealed that while she grew up to be confident about her beauty, the pressures to look good in Bollywood have affected her negatively. The actress also shared how she was told that she needed to go under the knife or undergo plastic surgery to enhance her appearance.
The Gangs of Wasseypur actress said she was told to “gain weight, then lose weight, fix her nose, inflate her lips, get a boob job, lose the puppy fat, grow her hair out, or cut it, get highlights, or fake eyelash extensions, squat for a bigger booty, get fake gel nails, run in heels, wear Spanx, pout while talking, focus on dilating the pupils, and listen attentively.” The actress, however, appears to be still looking natural these days. Despite the pressures, she has never given to to the temptation of plastic surgery.
