That perfect look is what most of us strive for. But what really is that perfect look? Bollywood has a major influence on the youth today, but it isn’t that these Bollywood celebrities are blessed with amazing looks. With the kind of money that they earn and the nature of their job, it isn’t a surprise that Bollywood celebrities themselves have gone under the knife to achieve that perfect look. Here we take a look at some of them.

Shilpa Shetty

With an awe-inspiring figure which we all long for, this Bollywood diva was always obsessed with perfection. She went ahead and fixed her nose which she thought was too flat.

Mallika Sherawat

Well, Mallika Sherawat is synonymous with hot and sexy, and there is no prize for guessing which part of her body she has surgically enhanced.


This evergreen dame had pictures splashed all over the web to indicate what was rumoured to be a boob-job. However, one thing is for sure is that she has got a nose job done.

Poonam Pandey

Bold as she is, she went from being a nobody to a some-booty after her asset augmentation.

Sherlyn Chopra

Another diva who caught eyeballs with her voluptuous figure and surgically enhanced body is Sherlyn Chopra. She was rumoured to have silicone implants although it isn’t certain.

Koena Mitra

Here’s an example of why you shouldn’t think of plastic surgery. After surgically enhancing her face, things went from bad to worse as she had to go through several corrective surgeries following a bad first attempt.

Katrina Kaif

Kat flaunts plumper lips thanks to her doctor’s efforts. Well, Kat we loved you anyway.

Priyanka Chopra

Piggy Chops did not like the way her upper lip grazed her nose while smiling and hence went under the knife to correct it.

Anushka Sharma

After her recent appearance on ‘Koffee With Karan’, Anushka Sharma faced severe criticism for her lip job. The actress chose to blame the lip enhancing tool she was apparently using at that time for an upcoming film.

Kareena Kapoor

The chubby cheeked Kareena Kapoor went under the knife to lift her cheekbones and sport a chiselled jaw line. The difference is clearly visible!

Karisma Kapoor

Another Kapoor Khandaan actress who went under the knife was Karisma. First she got rid of her bushy eyebrows and the next in line was her lips.

Bollywood celebrities have changed their names for various reasons. Numerology, superstition and sometimes just for a better name, celebrities have changed a letter or more in their names. Let us look at a few.

Katrina Kaif

Kat’s surname was Turquotte. After Jackie Shroff’s wife advised Katrina to change her surname in the early days of her career, the long legged beauty did as suggested. The logic behind the change was to let people pronounce her full name without any difficulty.

Mallika Sherawat

This hottie’s real name is Reema Lamba. But after realizing that there were many actresses in the industry with the same name, she decided to change it to Mallika Sherawat to avoid confusion. Sherawat, however, was her mother’s maiden name.

Amitabh Bachchan

Bachchan, also known as Big B has a cult like fan following in India. However, just a few know that in his debut film titled ‘Saat Hindustani’, Amitabh was actually Amitabh Srivastav before he switched to Amitabh Bachchan soon after the film’s disastrous fate.

Akshay Kumar

Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia! We wonder if he would make it big with that name. Akshay Kumar, who was a struggling chef, entered the film industry only after changing his name.

Ajay Devgn

Action choreographer Veeru Devgan named his son Vishal Veeru Devgan. But just before Vishal was to enter filmdom, he got himself a new identity – Ajay. And in 2009, he dropped ‘a’ from his last name.

John Abraham

John’s Parsi name ‘Farhan’ wasn’t interesting enough for him to grab attention. So he chose the name given to him by his father.


Rekha, such a nice, small and sweet name. Compare this with Bhanurekha Ganesan. We’re glad she decided to give her name a change!
