As a former Miss World and actress, Indian beauty Priyanka Chopra is likely familiar with plastic surgery in both beauty pageants and on camera. Yet the brunette stunner says she hasn’t felt pressured to go under the knife.
30-year old Priyanka Chopra may be an anomaly in the world of entertainment. As a former beauty queen and actress, she is shortly set to turn to music to add to her resume. Yet, she has apparently not felt the need to have plastic surgery, as is common in her field (especially nose surgery and breast implants).
When asked in an interview if she had ever had cosmetic surgery to enhance her looks, Priyanka replied:
“So far, I have never felt the need for any enhancement surgery. What I have is what I have been blessed with. People had a lot of issues about the fact that I was dusky and not a conventional-looking heroine. But I still got the opportunities I did. Grooming is a very important part of any girl’s life. In the early days, I did not even know how to apply make-up. Over the years, with the help of various teams, I have worked on a vision of me and there are things that I could change in the process. This is true of most heroines. You learn to take care of yourself. I am not against plastic surgery. If it helps build self-esteem, I don’t think there is anything wrong with it. But if it becomes an obsession, that can be a problem. For me, I got confidence from my films doing well. Through this profession, I came to understand myself better. So, it hurts when people judge or crucify me on imaginary counts. I have looked different at different ages because I have worked on my look. I love myself the way I am.”
Priyanka is set to debut her single “In My City,’ featuring will.i.am and produced by RedOne (Lady Gaga) and Brian Kennedy at the Thursday Night Kickoff
