Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao, who will be seen next in Srikanth, releasing on May 10, 2024addressed the plastic surgery speculations.

As reported by the Hindustan Times, the 39-year-old actor revealed that people used to comment on his looks, suggesting that he couldn't become a leading hero.

The Stree star said, "I found this debate very funny, I also looked at that particular image. That image looks too clean to be true, I don't have that kind of flawless skin. It felt touched up, I genuinely believe that. I started looking like a K Pop star."

"I have lines, I am not a 21-year-old guy anymore. Having said that, people intially used to comment on my looks. When I was starting out as an actor, a lot of people, casting, production, would say 'you won't be able to play the lead parts, you don't have what it takes."

He further shared, "There has to be a certain look of a part'. Eight-nine years back, after Kai Po Che!, I went to a dermatologist for the first time, I didn't even know these things exist."

Talking about getting aware of fillers, Rajkummar unveiled, "I got introduced to all this. She said 'your face is imbalanced', and it was true, my chin was slightly low. I used a little bit of filler and I actually felt the difference. Suddenly people started telling me 'you are so confident'. Then films like Stree, Badhaai Do happened."

"I thought it was fine. It's my life, my face. If something medicinal is available, why not? If something gives me confidence, I would rather do it. A lot of people go in for hair transplants. As long as you don't do it in an extreme way and start looking different," he added.

This response followed speculation about Rajkummar Rao undergoing plastic surgery, triggered by a viral picture of him at Diljit Dosanjh's recent concert.
