With bubbling hormones, positive anxiety takes over. The senses get more intense in the body, and mind, sense of anticipation full of pleasurable eagerness. It does make one conscious about looks. Neither a person can groom up as an adult nor be dapper like a kid.

With puberty setting in at a brisk pace, the confluence of hormones shows in the appearances of the individuals. But, there are some teenagers who defy the laws of nature. They just retain their childlike looks that it is impossible not to notice them.

Same goes with Bollywood celebs who were enjoying times without being a sensation and were very much like us. Some looked downplayed while other looked really stark making us go aww!

These stars of tinsel town have also experienced acne, zits, unibrows, mood swings, too much and too soon rush of blood, and of course, being couch potatoes. A few had been spared though, the horror of even a rare pimple sprouting on the face in years.

Here we bring to you few glimpses of their teenage life that will take you back in time. Let’s not be too judgemental guys and croon Smells like teen spirit (Nirvana).

Kareena Kapoor Khan

The diva who became an overnight sensation after donning the zero-size figure for Tashan was once a couch potato. But, looking at her rosy red cheeks is forcing me to say Awwww... Shoo cute!

Ranbir Kapoor

The versatile actor who plays challenging roles with amazing ease had that boyish charm along with wide-eyes he got from his mom. Hailing from the Kapoor family, being this endearing can’t be an exception as it is in their genes to pull on beauty with remarkable grace.

Priyanka Chopra

After carving her niche in Bollywood, the girl is now ruling Hollywood. She spruces up herself so well that she stands out in every movie, cover shoot, event, still, and video equally. That explains her being crowned Miss World 2000. But, Ms Piggy Chops was not always this sexy.

Alia Bhatt

She hogged the limelight in her debut ‘Student Of The Year’. The hottest and youngest chick in the town was fat during her teens and usually loved to sport the casual looks. I bet, back then no one would have imagined that she is having such a magnificent fashion sense in store.

Arjun Kapoor

Son of Boney Kapoor and nephew of superstar Anil Kapoor was interested in directing movies rather than acting. He was fat and unassuming in his teens. It was impossible to figure him as a star then. But now, the chiselled man is ruling the screen with back to back hits.

Sonam Kapoor

The girl is an ideal for many when it comes to styling. She really knows how to set trend with the help of her sister Rhea Khan. But, she was not as chic during her teens. She was chubby and used to sport glasses.

Believe in yourself, that is all you need to make this world a ramp on which every teenager who doesn’t feel beautiful, attractive will walk like a boss and those who criticize you will applaud you.
