I'm glad JP started this topic, because i'd been itching ot say someting about this topic for a whie now.

While looks do matter in the entertainment business, i think it is just plain hurtful to go on commenting about ppl's external appearance ALL the time. As someone rightly pointed out, most of te actors are bathed in makeup so one hardly knows what they REALLY look like. So just as it is silly to go on and on raving about someone's "beauty", it is plain mean to go on and on talking about someone being "fat" or "ugly". How do you know that the person you're talking about is not absoltutely gorgeous in real life?

Secondly, i disagree that the actors are being paid for their looks, and that just because they are celebities we have a right to say ANYTHING about them. Isnt presentability a part of any job? Yet, you wont want someone at your workplace to comment about your looks or your weight! The actors are being paid to ACT, not look a particular way. It is enough if their looks fit the character. Being "gorgeous" or "thin" doesnt matter all that much.
I know one gets a kick out of the glamour in the entertainment business. But one must, for one's own good, know where to stop this obsession with externals. It wont matter to the stars because they may never visit tis forum but it will matter to ourselves: our personal values: whether we want to just go by the cover or actually read the book!

i AGREE, I think some people tend to forget that what they say or feel abt some person need not be the same for everyone.The one they feel as beautiful doesn not mean the same for everyone else .

yes a certain actress in "fat" but that does not imply that she doesnt have talent or cannot accomplish anythig or become less beautiful or compete with "slim" people .

the worrying thing that i get offended abt is that theres nothing wrong is pointing out that a certain celebrity is "fat" or that he/she needs to hit the gym but the fact abt making it a s a headline or the title of the post or start a separate thread abt it is disturbing .

see why is so much importance given to the physical aspects of a person,we dont start a thread saying a certain celebrit is "slim " or too thin ,then why should special emphasis be given to the ones who are "plump"

there were certain comments abt an actress who was certainly on the heavier side but then degrading the same actress saying that she cannot dance mainly bcoz of her figure makes the post look so kiddish ,not bcoz of the post but bcoz of thre thoughts of that person. If this is the thought that one has that everyone who is on the heavier side cannot perform or do not have the talent to succeed then what can one say

yes people can post their opinions but the opinions reflects on the thoughts and the nature of the eprson posting abt it . I do agree that bollwood and television give more importance to looks but the other fact is that not many agree to it and say its right and have their own thoughts and opinions abt it .

In my case ,I admire people or like someone not bcoz of their looks but acting and talent is the main criteria for me . Some may not like ajay playing ram bcoz in their eyes ,he doesnt look the role but it may not be the same for others.I infact like to see ajay in that role coz he is a good actor which is the criteria for me for liking an actor/actress .

the sad truth is that looks have gained more importance in bollwood but that doesnt take away the fact that people who are "fat" are not beautiful .

the definition of beauty changes from person to person and what one sees as beauty may not be for the other person and thats the fact . One has to realise that ,there is no need to start a thread with the title "omg she is so fat " ,coz its ridiculous trying to make an issue which is non-existent

Hmmm...I have so many thoghts bubbling after reading all these posts....I dont know where to start...

Firstly, for all those who says ugly and overweight stars dont do well, then why is Kajol such a top actress. Why is ajay devgun doing so well? Why is SRK no 1 ( at risk of being killed by his fans I'm sorry to say I find SRK unattractive).

Secondly, those who talk about actors being overweight dont speak of their physical apppreance but how it makes them bad at their profession... the comment is she's so fat how can she dance or act?

I'm sorry but since when does weight prevent one from performing the craft?

Also, I thought those in the acting profession were supposed to look like their characters?
So tell me how does it look when Bipasha Basu is playing a village belle cabaret dancer with a perfect toned body and cut on her biceps. It looks ridiculous!!!!

well, people always seem to find it a problem if ur not slim enough. if ur just abit more healthier looking than the usual stick insect, u get labelled as 'fat'. LOL LOL Thumbs Up

wat great imparital fairness this world has! LOL does being slim mean ur perfect? i dun tink so. pple who are plump usually have much more personality and zeal than the slim people. LOL

thin or fat. all these terms are invented by human beings so tt they can achieve perfection. Smile but they fail to realise tt if u love urself just the way ur are. no matter if ur plump or thin, tt is already mastering the art of perfection. Clap

till people realsie this, this endless stream of 'fat' comments will keep on making their vicious rounds. Cry

Hello i thought that T.V and Bollywood was for Entertainment. And how do u think people will love watching fat ugly people on T.V and movies. I think this one point where hollywood is just ahead of us Indian. Instead to finding excuses just get you butt to the gym.
No Pain No Gain!!!!!


i disagree w/u here!

If ur talking about fat/ugly guys on big screen n we not watching them then think back to old, golden days!..when every single actor/actress were fat! Such as Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Dharmendra, Nutan, Nargis, Asha Parekh, Rishi Kapoor, n the list goes on and on!

I think fatness never mattered in today's generation either...if it did, then Madhavan wouldn't have been appreciated in RDB.

I think its how u act that matters, not ur weight.Smile



ok i disagree with u pachi and abhi cause when ur int he entertainment business u have to learn to live with ppl making these comments because u r in this type of a business now i am not sayin to go to an extend and saying really bad things but talking abt pplz weight's goes and and prolly will stay there. I am not saying that u should alwayz comment on these things but it's there and i dont think anyone can stop sayin it.Embarrassed


 

true pinkdrop..There's no point fooling oneself saying that looks dont matter in this buisness...and when these celebrities can reap all the perquisites(fame,being written about,being  featured in the page 3 section),they must also be ready for the brickbats....If celebrities cant handle the heat,they need to go and do some work where no one would talk about their looks

and what's worse is that..even celebs would agree that they are fat,but the fans...uuuuuuuffffffffffffffff,when one is in limelight, one is posing himself / herself for JUDGEMENT!  They are SUPPOSED to look good and dress well at all times ...Stupid DEVOTEESDeadDead always howling and crying about her weight being fine,always howling and crying that the stars dress well,always howling that nothing negative should be said about the star and to top it all,a blackmail.."I AM LEAVING IF ..AS EVERYONE IS CRITICIZING MY STAR...You made people quit the forum and other such gibberish"....C'mon,these people need to grow up,not everyone will worship the stars,not eveyone will glorify.....Some need to stop kidding themselvesTongue 



yea buffie i also agree with u people criticizing stars Tongue well we cant really do anything abt these types of people cause its peorson to person opinion lolBig smileBig smile
