#BookReview ; Anything To Look Hot by Jas Kohli

When the superstar diva of the past decade doesn’t want to play the hero’s mother on screen, she insists that she be reshaped into the most beautiful woman in the world…by any means. This is just one of the many odd situations which plastic surgeon Dr. Dhruv faces in Mumbai. He has dealt with tyrannical bosses and finicky patients while undergoing his training, during which he has also won over a stunning doctor as his life partner. 
But satisfying the movie stars is a different ball game, because every girl wishes to have bee-stung lips, and every guy wants to flaunt a six-pack abdomen without working too hard. And all this while, he has to resist losing his balance over his ravishing female clients. Dr. Dhruv’s journey surpasses even a masala movie for humour, drama and action. In debunking many a myth about cosmetic surgeries, the book will enthrall those who can do Anything to Look Hot.

Anything To Look Hot is a story about the journey our protagonist Dr Dhruv Khanna covers to be a plastic surgeon & who better to write it better than Dr Jas Kohli who is a plastic surgeon himself! The story starts with our protagonist passing his entrance test for the Master of Chirurgiae, celebrations takes place followed by joining the duty. Then comes the life of being a resident at the hospital which is supposedly the toughest phase of a doctor & as publicized our protagonist did go through its hardships but he comes across many senior doctors who guides him to be a humble & hardworking doctor.

As our protagonist woos his junior Nandini & then gets married his professional life also moved forward. The story then advances slowly just like the life of a doctor where there are no shortcuts, also Nandini decides to pursue paediatrics in Dibrugarh. Will this long distance relationship work? Will our protagonist be able to flourish in his field even if he has to survive this emotional turmoil? All these questions are answered in this book. While there's also a part in the book which moved me when our protagonist helps his father to chase his old dreams & live them.

One thing that this book teaches us is to be open minded about new medical techniques which are present to make our lives better but also to keep our conscience intact & decide when it’s enough.
