Anushka Sharma finally opens up about lip job

Almost after two years, Anushka Sharma’s lip job controversy again cropped up and the ‘PK’ actress came out open about the 2014 controversy surrounding her fuller lips, saying she is "human and not perfect." In 2014, when Anushka Sharma appeared on Karan Johar’s chat show with fuller lips, she hit the headlines.

The star issued a statement in which she said that her fuller lips is a "lip enhancing tool" and "make-up techniques" she used for her role in ‘Bombay Velvet’ and denied the speculation that she had underwent any lip job. She added that she has done all this for her role in ‘Bombay Velvet’ in which she enacted the role of a jazz singer.

And in a recent interview to Vogue, Anushka said, "I have nothing to hide. So when I spoke about my lip job, a lot of people called me brave for coming out. But I did what I had to (for my role in 'Bombay Velvet'). I'm not going to lie and say I didn't. I had to take ownership. I wanted fans to know that I'm human and not perfect."

Anushka had released this statement. "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. I have by no means gone 'under the knife' or done any kind of 'plastic surgery' or undergone any intrusive procedure." 

When Anushka’s lip job controversy tolled on Twitter and the actress was slammed, the actress’s cricketer boyfriend Virat Kohli came in support of his girlfriend and bursts out at twitterati and stated that it is Anushka’s private matter and no one has the liberty to discuss the issue in the public forum. He then asked everyone to leave Anushka alone.

Says a source, “Virat feels that whatever Anushka has done to her lips is her private matter. He also wasn’t happy that his budding friendship with Anushka was the focus of so much attention on Koffee With Karan. Virat doesn’t want anyone talking about his friendship with the actress as he wants to focus only on cricket. He’s always been low-key about his girlfriends and that is one of the reasons why their relationship is being kept a secret. When he is ready, they will talk about it.”
