It is a known fact that showbiz industries all over the world have set certain beauty standards for those who strive to be a part of it. Those who become associated with showbiz are automatically expected to look and be a certain way in order to comply with most of the standards that are beauty and personality-related. The Pakistani showbiz industry is no different and now more than ever, people who are associated with this field find themselves faced with a lot of pressures that they are expected to meet. This is the reason, at this stage, all the celebrities whether male or female have become a lot more conscious of how they look.
In the olden era, Pakistani dramas and movies used to be known for their simplicity and realistic approach with actors not even wearing any makeup while being in front of the camera but now commercialism plays a pivotal role and that has become the demand of the current times. This factor has influenced the way celebrities want to look. This also has given rise to the insecurities felt by the celebrities and over the period of time, their fans get to see a drastic difference in their appearance or their facial features. Previously it used to be more about fitness-related where the actors worked hard to stay fit but slowly and steadily it became more about their facial features.
Due to these unrealistic beauty standards and by falling prey to their own insecurities, a lot of actors and actresses resort to cosmetic procedures and in some cases surgeries to achieve certain kinds of features that they feel will add more to their beauty and enhance it the way they want to. The procedures that have become common amongst celebrities these days are rhinoplasty, facial fillers, dental veneers, lip augmentation, and facelift to name a few.
However, in this day and age, it is also endearing to see natural beauty in the Pakistani showbiz industry. There are also such celebrities and actresses who have shown that they are very much confident with their own beauty and do not need to resort to any cosmetic correction to look a certain way. Most of these actresses also gave up on makeup in some of their dramas because they realized that it was the demand of the character, which set a good example for the impressionable fans who look up to these celebrities and chase after the illusion of flawlessness. It is very important for celebrities who are looked highly upon to promote natural beauty and the fact that it is essential to love yourself and be comfortable in your skin.
