In an interview to a daily, the actress says she loves the way she looks and has not resorted to plastic surgery so far.
"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 actress. But I still got the opportunities I did," the actress told the daily.
"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," she added.
The actress previously said during an event: "I belive in cosmetic surgery. I'm not judgemental about anybody's individual choices. But if you can make yourself look better to feel better, I don't think there's anything bad in it. Cosmetic surgery only becomes wrong when it becomes a disease."
