Vidya Balan admits THIS Bollywood director asked her to get a plastic surgery done

Unhappy with how they appear, numerous B-town actresses have gone under the knives. For some, it enhanced their beauty. For some, it went terribly wrong. But what we don’t know is whether most of them decided to be operated voluntarily or was it a call to match the set definition of beauty that rules the industry.

Vidya Balan, a fierce and unapologetic soul who made it a point to work at her own terms, has delivered significant performance almost every time.

In a recent conversation with The Indian Express, the actress revealed how filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra (Producer of ‘Parineeta’) found her nose too big and wanted to send her to LA so she could a surgery done.

“I remember Vinod Chopra telling me, ‘It’s such a long nose, I’ll send to you to LA, get it done.’ And I was so scared to open my mouth and say anything to him because I thought, ‘What if you throw me out of the film if I said no.’ I was really upset.

“I came away and I told Pradeep Sarkar, ‘Dada, you know I will not get my nose fixed. I either come with this nose, then I don’t. I can’t cut my nose to be an actress. He said, ‘No, I don’t think that would be needed.’ I don’t know whether he ever brought it up or how it got resolved. I was too scared of Vinod Chopra, but I came and told Dada what I had to,” she stated.

Women like her are in full acceptance of themselves and wouldn’t amend themselves to fit in anywhere.
