Media, according to many, has the power to shape individual minds. It’s a powerful tool that can be used to change and create social consciousness. Thus, it walks around with a heavy burden of responsibilities.
News 24, a mainstream media house, posted ‘then’ and ‘now’ pictures of actor, Disha Patani. They tweeted saying, “Can you believe how ugly Disha Patani looked once?”
The picture on the left is from Patani’s childhood days as student, while the one on the right is her, striking a pose on a red carpet.
They also posted an article, talking about the drastic ‘transformation’ the actor has gone through over the years. Talking about how Patani looked during her school days, they wrote,
THERE IS A SHOCKING PICTURE OF DISHA PATANI WHERE SHE IS SEEN AS A PLAIN JANE, VERY ORDINARY, AND DULL.”
They further illustrated that the now “coy and elegant” Patani has made it into the competitive Bollywood industry all thanks to her “good work and wonderful looks.”
The article goes on to call her an “ordinary looking girl, wearing a school uniform” who is unrecognisable. They say that this “contrast” between the two pictures is almost “shocking.”
But Disha Patani gave her hell of a reply. She said:
Disha Patani’s fashion choices seems to be getting better with each passing day. From channeling some summer spirit in a quirky and easy-breezy outfit to showing us how to nail monochromes and laces effortlessly, the actor has always been a treat to watch. A few days ago, she completely stole the show in a pristine platinum-coloured lehenga from JADE by Monica and Karishma and this time it was no different as she opted for a Manish Malhotra ensemble.
The M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story actor glammed up her style quotient in a sizzling golden gown. The fully-embellished number featured a plunging neckline and geometric patterns on it. Styled by Shaleena Nathani, the body-hugging wonder looked great on the actor. She accessorised it with a pair of statement danglers by Farah Ali Khan.
While hairstylist Amit Thakur gave her a tousled hairdo, celebrity make-up artist Daniel Bauer rounded off her look with nude make-up and thickly-lined eyes.
