Raj Kumar Rao Plastic Surgery Claims Addressed

His director also said in the video that “he looks like Srikanth”. This caused a frenzy online with allegations claiming that he has had plastic surgery.

The hero handles the situation very calmly and opens up on it he said- “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. 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.” (noted here)

He aslo said- “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.” (noted here)

Rajkummar Rao acknowledges that approximately eight years ago, he underwent filler injections to boost his confidence, a decision guided by the advice of his dermatologist.
