Anushka Sharma sets record straight

Anushka Sharma, who made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan, has finally spoken out about her lips. Following her recent appearance on ‘Koffee with Karan’, the actress received a lot of flak for her changed facial features, with many jumping to the conclusion that she had gone the plastic surgery way.

Sharma has stayed quiet up until now. However, today she posted a statement on micro-blogging site Twitter to quash all the rumours and put an end to speculation once and for all.

Sharma’s tweet read: ” 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 😉

Goodnight to all

Love and Light

Anushka”.
