Many actresses have allegedly faked their ages to appear younger. It is because in Bollywood an actor can get lead roles even in his 40s and 50s but actresses struggle to get meaty parts once they cross 30. The main reason why these actresses do so, the other reason is – pressure by the society, fans and media for marriage. Here are some actresses who allegedly lied about their ages and we wonder why they did so as they are the role models they have to defy the odds without caring about what people say, after all, age is just a number!
Sara Ali Khan
The new age Bollywood actress Sara debuted in films with Kedarnath. In an interview, the actress told that she is 23 years old as she was born in 1995. But there is another side of the story too. When you search online, you’ll be surprised to see that her age is not what the actress mentioned, it is 25! It is written that she was born in September 1993. Also, according to an old article published in a leading entertainment portal, Saif Ali Khan became a father after two years of his marriage i.e in 1993. Sara is his first child from first wife Amrita Singh whom he married in 1991.
In 2012 in a video, Disha claimed she is 20 with her date of birth being June 13, 1992. The actress claimed to be 20 in 2016 again and said her date of birth is July 27, 1995. It created a controversy also. She is 26 years old now.
Kangana who said she was 22 was caught in 2009 when her passport read 28 as her age. She is 33 now.
In an old interview, Katrina revealed that she was just 8 years old when the Berlin Wall fell. In the same interview, she also revealed that she is younger than Ranbir Kapoor. However, according to Berlin Wall data, Katrina was born in 1981 and by that logic, should be 37 as of today. However, Ranbir was born in 1982 and is 36 now.
