Plastic Surgery Scandal In Bollywood


Plastic surgery is a booming business worldwide and recently developing nations like China and India are breaking records as discretionary incomes rise and more of their population are able to afford cosmetic surgical enhancement.

One segment of India, known as Bollywood for its burgeoning Hindi film industry, is home to a portion of Indians that have no trouble affording plastic surgery. Perhaps this is why rumors of cosmetic enhancement for these stars are off the charts in direct proportions to the levels we saw only a few years ago in American Hollywood.

The most recent plastic surgery rumor involves an actor known as Harman Baweja (pictured above, right) allegedly having cosmetic surgery to look like another Bollywood bigshot, Hrithik Roshan (above left). Truly Baweja and Roshan do share similar features - if you search for images in Google, you'll find that many have mistaken one actor for the other. It's rumored that Baweja visited a cosmetic surgeon in India three years previous with a photo of Roshan requesting to look like the fellow actor.

The surgeon, Dr. Vijay Sharma, rather coyly dismisses any question of his involvement in an attempt to maintain patient confidentiality. Baweja doesn't see it that way, however, and is seeking to quash rumors by speaking out publicly that the rumors are false.

Although Dr. Sharma will not admit to performing an operation on Baweja, he slyly comments that people often request to look like "their heroes" and that he could perform the necessary facial contouring that would make Baweja and Roshan look alike with a procedure know as a Volumatrix face lift. This knifeless procedure involves removing fat from the cheeks and under the eyes with a needle-like device and making a round face appear more elliptical or oval.

To the comment above: I really have no idea what you're talking about. Firstly, I assure you that the man on the left (the left side of the screen, that is - that would be your right) IS Hrithik Roshan. The man on the left side of the screen (not your left) is Harman Baweja - the man who allegedly had plastic surgery to look like Roshan.

It would seem you misunderstood the post entirely. I believe you have misinterpreted the story. This is not a post about Hrithik Roshan having plastic surgery, but Harman Baweja. So, if you mean that the two men pictured are not the same person; congratulations, you're 100% correct - and that's the point.

I thank you for the advice on fact checking and I'd like to offer you some in return: make sure you understand an article before you post rambling and strange commentary.
