If these Bollywood bimbos/bimbas are heavy drug users, how come they still keep looking good? Their acting schedule must be quite hectic as well. Doesn't heavy drug use and lack of proper rest take a toll on their looks?
You'd be surprised what make-up can do. Go online, there are youtube videos where average-looking girls show how they can make themselves look gorgeous with make-up, all while looking as if they aren't wearing any (or not much). There's all kinds of bases and layers and natural-looking goop which can be brought into service. It seems in the western world (don't know about India, maybe catching up as well), lots of women make sure never ever to be seen without make-up, especially by their spouses. Figures can of course be enhanced in multiple ways. I think it's the initial audition and the first taste of fame, which requires all the hard work (or maybe even that is all connections), after that, public demand for the star ensures that they can keep getting roles, with make-up artists making up for any loss of looks. Aamir Khan, after all, continued doing "college-kid" roles well into his forties. And Rajni had those elaborate hair pieces to hide his real looks. There was this "Friends" actor (Matthew Perry) who looked like he was 65+ in real life (in his forties) and continued getting the role and acting young on reel.
Apparently the drug use also starts because of the hectic schedule. Sleeping pills are good for a few weeks or months, after that, it's harder stuff to get the feel of "proper rest" (without the actual sleep) and keep going to acting schedules, parties, and drug bashes of course. It's a whole make-believe world, with the gullible public lapping it all up.
