Stretched too far? Why did Anushka Sharma explain her 'lip-job'

By Bollywood Correspondent

The previews of Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma’s appearance on filmmaker Karan Johar’s hit chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’ has ignited rumours of the actress undergoing the knife.

Hours before the show’s telecast, comments about Anushka’s new look was trending, this despite her PR team's denial.

After the episode went on air the murmur grew so loud that Anushka herself had to step in to take control.

Fans on Twitter had taken a dig on the apparent lip-job and some went beyond being nasty.

The jokes were stretched too much when she was compared with the 'Guy Fawkes mask' and cartoon character Donald Duck‏ and it didn't amuse us at all.

Some tweets blamed alleged boyfriend Virat Kohli for the new look.

Arnab Goswami 3D‏: Anushka Sharma's lips look they're hit by Virat Kohli's bat.

@jhunjhunwala: Virat Kohli goes into coma after seeing Anushka Sharma's new lips.

Madhavan Narayanan: Apparently Anushka Sharma wanted Virat lips.

@jhunjhunwala: Scientists discover a face around Anushka Sharma's lips.

Donald Duck‏: What Anushka Sharma got after spending lakhs over plastic surgery, she would've achieved just by spending few minutes inside a boxing ring.

SirSriJhunjhunwala: Anushka Sharma's lips have not gotten bigger. Her face has gotten smaller.

This probably led Anushka to explain her stand on the alleged lip surgery on social networking site.

In a long note to her critics the dignified lady wrote:

Hellooooo everyone !! Today I am here to talk about my lips !! Yes ! There ! I said it .. My lips !

As a person I find it difficult to talk about my personal life and hence have always maintained a low profile choosing to interact with you all on twitter with my random -mostly illogical thoughts seeming 
like the only thing I feel ok about ..that's just who I am .. But in today's time where PR stories and feeding people with information constantly or making appearances is a fad somewhere people like me get

lost in translation or in this case translations !

Lately there has been a LOT of talk about me in this particular episode of KOffee with Karan . Mainly regarding my lips . I am here to just convey what I have to say regarding the same . I am talking about

it only because this story has taken a scary direction and things have been 'blown out of proportion' ( pun intended ;) ) ...

For a short while now I have been using a temporary lip enhancing tool and that along with make up techniques ( I have learnt over the years) is the reason why there might be a change in the appearance of my lips. Having stated this fact let me very vehemently assure everyone that I have by no means gone 'under the knife ' or done any kind of 'plastic surgery' or undergone any intrusive procedure. This was my

decision and was done for the sake of my look in my upcoming film Bombay velvet,a period drama where I play a jazz singer in the 1960's - 70's . And it was taken from the referencing of that time .

The drastic change in my appearance on KWK is due to lot of factors put together and not just my lips . Everyone goes through good and bad days. Did I think I looked good on the KWK episode ? NO . I do feel  I could have done things differently .

To put the current conjectures and reportage straight once and for all from my end - I have said this before and am saying it again .. I do not believe in plastic surgery or any other means of unnatural permanent changes to the body . I do not support it or stand for it or recommend it .

Now if someday my legs appear different and sexy to you ! Please don't say I've done 'Something' ...

Oh ! And also ... Some of the 'joker' jokes/memes doing the rounds though a bit mean did bring a smile to my lips ;)

Love and Light

She has also received support from her colleagues. Actress Alia Bhatt, Sonam Kapoor and filmmaker Karan Johar applauded on her gutsy step to take on the criticism head on.
For once we find a Bollywood actress who can take criticism and also laugh at it rather than shooting an angry mail to the media.
