Synopsis – Anything to Look Hot[edit]

Dr Dhruv,[20] a surgeon named after the pole star, is a surprise topper in the entrance test for a degree in plastic surgery.[21] But he is aware that he has to work hard like a husky and brook insults like a donkey for the next two years as a resident doctor.[22] His chief initially mocks at him publicly but Dhruv gradually wins his confidence. Each day of his residency is exciting as he comes face to face with many piquant characters and situations. He also takes fancy to Nandini, a ravishing junior doctor from Assam and has a wobbly romantic journey before ensnaring her in matrimony. However their togetherness is short lived because she has to leave for Assam after selection in the MD course. After passing his exam, he gains a fellowship in a cosmetic surgery hospital in the US where he finds out that humour is a great leveller. After coming back, Dhruv[23] is all set to lead a run of the mill life in his hometown Delhi. His mom reveals a family secret about the unfulfilled wish of his dad who, in his youth, badly wanted to leave Delhi to try out his luck in Hindi film industry but could not do so because of family responsibilities. This sparks Bollywood dreams in him and he takes the train to Mumbai on a mad mission to knife as many stars as possible, in the operation theatre of course. He joins a renowned plastic surgeon Dr Jayaraj where he learns about the special skills required to deal with the film stars and other celebrities who are the major chunk of Dr Jayaraj's clientele. In a surprise turn of events, Dr Jayaraj opts to settle in Dubai. Dhruv reluctantly takes over his practice. His career takes off after he takes up the challenge of radical transformation of looks of a gossip columnist, Chitra, by doing three marathon surgeries. Chitra's relative, Shagun, an aspiring actor, wants her vital statistics to be top heavy. Dhruv fulfills her wish by doing breast implants. Meanwhile, his wife finishes her MD and joins him in Mumbai. Soon they have a daughter. Dhruv has by now made a good name and lot of actors, come to him. On the flip side, he has to handle not only big-headed stars but also fraudulent colleagues who go for his jugular. Shagun also brings along her boyfriend who gives him an offer to be an actor but Dhruv puts it in cold storage. Instead, he plans to orchestrate his dad's entry into showbiz. His father gets a stellar role in a television serial and shifts to Mumbai. There is an exciting interlude in his life, when one of his patients, who is a model, invades his mind space. Just when both of them seem to be going beyond the point of no return, a whistleblower nips the affair in the bud. Dhruv immerses himself in his work as he becomes the demanded one. But ignoring his back pain proves to be his nemesis as it precipitates as disc prolapse. He is advised total bed rest and surgery is not ruled out. An escape route via an acting career is proposed again. However his chief Dr Vidur motivates him to fight back and not to give up plastic surgery.[24] After the period of bed rest his problem subsides to a great extent and he escapes surgical intervention. Meanwhile, to his profound delight, his dad switches to big screen, bagging a lead role. .[25]
