There are different kinds of wishes which we as humans have. A few of us asks for immortality while most of us craves for endless youth.
Similarly actors of Bollywood has been entertaining us for ages now and yet they look much younger than we do. We idolise them not only on their acting flair but the effortless perfections carried out by their skin on-screen which makes us believe that through some sorcery or the other, they have must have drank from the fountain of the youth. Let’s call this sorcery, make up. With the advancement of the beauty products, it seems as if they have never aged.
However, admit it or not, we fans of Bollywood have always wondered that do they really look like this? Is their skin so brutally flawless? Our own insecurities keeps on questioning us that are they real?
This piece will take a look at eight superstars who sports an absolutely different picture under their charismatic facade.
With our young generation still scrambling wildly for style statements, this man from the south has defined and redefined style in his own sweet ways.
However, the man who can flip a coin through his head and yet make it look extraordinarily swaggering, he isn’t a young chap, capering around to his heart’s will. He is 64 years old and it seems that he goes through a multiple-daub of make-ups before coming down on-screen.
2. Abhishek Bachchan
Abhishek Bachchan does look pretty cool on the sets but once you take away the layers of colours, he is all but charming.
3. Salman Khan
You won’t really find much difference between the ever-smiling Salman Khan in make-up and sans make-up. He is all the same. A few flickers of colour does occur but isn’t that natural?
4. Arjun Kapoor
The angelic presence played out by this dashing actor on-screen takes a back seat as soon as the nuances of make-up are detracted from this Bollywood hunk.
5. Shahrukh Khan
This man never seems to age and even if he does, he probably reverses the biological chronograph.
However, in one of the pictures clicked probably out of the blue, an unexpected snap came over and in that Shahrukh Khan, the king of Bollywood was snapped ageing.
6. Akshay Kumar
Cool as ever, this man never makes a fuss about concealing his age. He flaunts his whites with staggering panache like the way he flexes his lean muscles.
However, if the movie needs him to be a young Casanova, we are very well aware of what Akshay Kumar can pull off.
7. R Madhavan
With two dashing performances in Breathe and Sala Khadoos, Madhavan pushed age back a thousand notches on the screen.
He is like a natural beauty and make up does very little difference to his never-ending charm.
8. Amir Khan
Mr Perfectionist of Bollywood has been delivering day in day out with his stunning symmetry.
However, age catches up with everyone and it seems that Amir Khan is slowly walking into the vice of this eternal enemy of youth.
