Picture special: Taking criticism in their stride
Sonakshi Sinha: Be it the jokes on her broad forehead or the criticism for choosing de-glam roles, the 'Dabangg' actress has believed there's no point in living a life where one can’t laugh at self. She continues to choose her Bollywood projects carefully after lenghty discussions with father Shatrughan Sinha
Vidya Balan: The actress has often recalled in interviews how not being 'hip' enough made her an object of ridicule, especially after 'Heyy Baby'. With blockbuster hits like 'The Dirty Picture' and 'Kahaani', Vidya managed to turned the criticisms into praises
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: The actress has earned flak for her poor dressing sense and hairdo at the Cannes Film Festival in the past. It was even rumoured that the actress will give the Festival a miss this year because of the extra baggage of cellulite she piled on post pregnancy. However, Aishwarya put all the rumour mills down by confirming that she will walk the red-carpet this year too
Kangana Ranaut: The actress admitted being sick and tired of people complaining about her diction and dialogue delivery, but she never let the criticisms take her peace away. She revealed on a show that such remarks do not upset her and found pride that her beauty is ‘natural’ without having to go under the knife of any cosmetic surgeon
Emraan Hashmi: The king of romance is known to have kissed all his leading ladies in every film he did right from 'Footpath' to 'Gangster'. He even admits to not sitting with his wife for the screening of his films for the fear of getting slapped or getting his nose boxed
R Madhavan: Despite being in the industry for more than a decade and having an equally well off career down South, Madhavan is still criticised by people for being on the heavier side, especially after 'Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein'. Madhavan did not pay any heed and went on to prove himself through films like '3 Idiots' and 'Jodi Breakers'
Abhishek Bachchan: Junior B has been getting a lot of criticism until 'Dum Maaro Dum' came. The actor is said to be known in the industry only because of his father Amitabh Bachchan. Abhishek did not let this come in the way and believed that criticism is the sign of success, indifference is what kills an actor
