Anushka Sharma denies going under the knife

The facial appearance of the perky actress Anushka Sharma has undergone several changes since her debut in Rab ne bana di Jodi opposite Shah Rukh Khan. The appearance of her lips have changed considerably between her films Badmaash company and Matru ki bijli ki mondola while her appearance in an award function in 2012 further reinforced the rumors that she had got a lip job. Fans were eagerly waiting for her appearance in the hit chat show Koffee with Karan where she appeared with director Anurag Kashyap and talked about her upcoming film,Bombay velvet. The episode aired on Sunday night and nobody could have helped noticing the rather odd appearance of her mouth around the lips. Her fans took to Twitter to comment on the altered appearance.

Some of the comments on Anushka’s lips were as follows:

waseem zuffari @zuffari_waseem: Anushka is looking really funny ! The pout look she wanted turned out to be disastrous! Hope fr a look recovery ! #KoffeeWithAnushka

Aniruddha Guha: Feeling awful for Anushka Sharma. Talented actor, naturally good-looking. And all everyone can talk about anymore is her lips!

So, finally, Anushka decided to tackle the issue heads on. Her tweet on Monday morning read as follows:

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

"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 ;) )," she says.

"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."
