Have you ever gone back to some of your old pictures on Facebook and felt shocked looking at your old self? It's the same when it comes to celebs because some of them have completely transformed. So much that you can barely recognise them. Yep, it really comes as a surprise sometimes when they share #Throwback pictures and we start comparing: middle partings and baggy clothes to spikes and bodycons. Not just their fitness routines and clothes, but their personalities have also undergone changes.
From Arjun Kapoor to Karan Johar, here we have 11 celebrities who will completely surprise you with their transformations. So, it's an 'Oh boy!' moment to look at these photos from years ago.
1. Arjun Kapoor
We are as amazed as you are! Arjun Kapoor has said it in interview that he didn't care about fitness until Salman Khan helped him with a workout regime. Bhai was his fitness inspiration and his mentor! Our desi munda is really slaying it with this new look.
2. Karan Johar
From being the cutie in DDLJ to the pout-lover Karan of Koffee with Karan, this Bollywood director has come a long way! He dons many hats now - even that of a reality show judge and a radio jockey. The father of twins is killin' it when it comes to styling.
3. Shilpa Shetty
The actress who made her mark with movies like Baazigar and Dhadkan has become a yoga guru and fitness enthusiast. Her transformation from a girl next door to a gorgeous fashionista proves that she's ageing like fine wine.
4. Salman Khan
Through the years bhai has managed to build some 'dole shole' but we can't complain 'coz I can't imagine the old Sallu in Dabangg. Can you? His motto to start body-building was when he was gunning for action movies and his first big appearance with his transformed body was in the song 'Oh Oh Jaane Jaana' in Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya.
5. Karisma Kapoor
Karisma's eyebrow game was strong in the 90s, but she didn't know she was setting the trend of thicker eyebrows for the generation to come! During the 90s, actresses like Karisma and Kajol preferred thicker eyebrows and we're in wow of her confidence, then and now!
6. Sonam Ahuja Kapoor
Cute as a button, isn't she? Sonam Kapoor did not look like our Aisha in her teens. She was an assistant director to Sanjay Leela Bhansali back in the days, and her style was completely different. But Sonam's accessory choices have stayed the same. (Did you spot similar hoops in both the pictures even though they are taken years apart?)
7. Ranbir Kapoor
Ranbir Kapoor is every girl's #MancrushMonday right now and I'm sure he was considered a cutie back in the day as well. But what a transformation from the Tere Naam hairstyle to a gentleman's poise.
8. Bipasha Basu
Bipasha Basu is one of those celebs who has completely transformed their personalities, from head to toe, be it her hairstyle, clothes, appearance. Everything about her is different and she's all about fun!
9. Priyanka Chopra
Our Desi girl has always been glamorous but we have to admit that she looks nothing like she looked back in 2000 during her Miss World days. There has been a lot of transformation in PeeCee's looks as she kept up with the trends and kept refining her style. Plus, the tattoo on her wrist is new.
10. Saif Ali Khan
Who's that? Ibrahim Ali Khan? No, it's Saif Ali Khan from his Yeh Dillagi days. Can't believe right? No wondering where Ibrahim gets his looks from. The Nawab also went from super skinny to super handsome and got himself six-pack abs. He follows a strict workout routine and believes in eating healthy, just like wifey Kareena.
11. Sonakshi Sinha
Happy Phir Bhaag Jayegi actress is such an inspiration when it comes to owing your body. She loves her curves and we love her for it. She has fitness goals on her list, but she insists on being herself and embracing her body.
