Bollywood actresses often undergo cosmetic surgeries to enhance their body parts to look more beautiful. And there are hardly a few actresses who accept going under the knife publicly. But TV actress Aashka Goradia bodly came out to tell all that she underwent a lip job.
"Yes I want to look better so I tried something out," Aashka said when she spoke about beauty and beautification on Ted X platform.
She further added, "I've been around for 16 years and I, of course, can not look the same. We are constantly aging and I wish I had a sob story to tell you but believe me there is none. I wanted fuller lips and hence I decided to go for them. But being asked about 'how much plastic went into my lips' at a press conference with 20 people around, is not the place I would like to speak about it and definitely not when the tone that the question came into me was so wrong! Yes, I decided to do something on my face and that's my choice. I am my own sculptor, I am my own painter!"
Speaking about the ever growing demand of the beauty products among people, Aashka said, "Make up has existed for over 7000 years and lipsticks for over 5000 years. Going back to humanity and the human race, we as people have always wanted to look better. There has to be demand in order to be supply. The thousands of beauty applications wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the demand. And so again if a girl chooses to get something done on her face, why do we call her 'plastic.' So many of my own contemporaries including myself have gone through articles in the media where we've been said to 'have gone under the knife,' become 'plastic,' etc. God forbid somebody has to go under the knife, do we even know what it is? We jump to conclusions without doing proper research and understanding the process itself."
She also stated that many women lie or hide about them undergoing plastic surgery because of the fear of how they will be labelled.
"And sadly the ones doing this are the females as our industry is dominated by female journalists. We've forgotten the power of the pen as we first upload before and after pictures calling someone plastic and then we ask the audience to leave comments below. This fear of how you will be labeled has made many women lie or hide what they've exactly done instead of being able to come out and say, 'Yes I want to look better so I tried something out," she said.
Aashka Goradia earlier made headlines when she tied the knot with her American beau Brent Goble on December 3 in her hometown Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
