Not lip job, make-up and temporary lip enhancing: Anushka Sharma
Actor Anushka Sharma has been making headlines ever since her appearance on an episode of Koffee with Karan (KWK) season six. Her look on the show earned her the sobriquet of ‘joker lips’. Tweeters wondered if her changed appearance was due to lip enhancers or something more intrusive. The speculation began after the teasers for Karan Johar’s show appeared on TV and has not ended even after the show went on air. On Monday, Anushka took to Twitter to clear things out, reported Hindustan Times. She went on to saying: “Hello 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, hence, I have always maintained a low profile. I choose to interact with you all on Twitter with my random, mostly illogical thoughts — that’s just who I am. In today’s time, where PR stories are constantly feeding people with information, people like me get lost. Lately, there has been a lot of talk about me after my appearance on Koffee with Karan and it’s mainly regarding my lips. I am here to address the same concern. 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, gotten 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 1960s-70s. 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. Do 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 I 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, stand for it or recommend it. Now, if on some day, 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 Goodnight to all, Love and Light, Anushka” Soon after Anushka’s tweet, actors Sonam Kapoor and Alia Bhatt applauded her courage and stated that they now have newfound respect for the person that she is. She also received support from Karan Johar, the host of the show.
