Anushka Sharma rubbishes 'lip job' on social media; garners praise from Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt!

By Urvi Parikh, Glamsham Editorial

Bollywood's bold babe Anushka Sharma raised quite a few eye-brows recently when she appeared on Karan Johar's 'Koffee with Karan'; thanks to her new 'look'. The actress became a target on a social networking site, after she was seen sporting fuller lips during the episode.

However, Anushka had a different stance and she took on to a micro-blogging site to clarify herself.

Posted Anushka, "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 !"

She added further, "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."

Anushka, who rubbished the reports of her undergoing the knife for the new look, further stated clearly that she neither believes in plastic surgeries nor recommends it to anyone.

"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 ;) Goodnight to all... Love and Light," concluded Anushka.

Anushka's contemporary actresses Sonam Kapoor and Alia Bhatt applauded her for this brave stance and also praised her for this on a micro-blogging site.

"Kudos to @AnushkaSharma for addressing unfair criticism head on, have always admired her as an actor and now I def admire her as a person," posted Sonam.

Alia also supported Anushka and shared, "Way to go @AnushkaSharma !!! People are dealing with a strong girl here so say what you want nothing is bringing her down!!!"
