Actress Anushka Sharma, who is being talked about for her fuller lips, denies going under the knife for the new look. She attributes her changed looks to a temporary lip enhancing tool for her role in the upcoming movie "Bombay Velvet".
The speculation started after Anushka, who made her Bollywood debut with "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi", appeared on "Koffee With Karan".
The 25-year-old took to microblogging website Twitter to deny reports of having undergone cosmetic surgery.
"...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)," Anushka tweeted Monday night.
"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.
"...Let me 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 1960s-1970s. And it was taken from the referencing of that time," she added.
The "Band Baaja Baraat" star further said that her changed looks on the show "is due to lot of factors put together" and not just her lips, and she doesn't think that she was at her best in terms of her looks.
She said that she is setting the record straight once and for all.
"To put the current conjecture and reportage straight once and for all - 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," she posted.
Sonam tweeted: "Kudos to Anushka Sharma for addressing unfair criticism head on... have always admired her as an actor and now I definitely admire her as a person."
Alia posted: "Way to go Anushka Sharma. People are dealing with a strong girl here so say what you want... nothing is bringing her down."
Karan Johar, host of "Koffee With Karan", also praised her.
"Anushka Sharma is a powerhouse of talent and the downside of social media cannot and will not take away the core of her creative existence," he tweeted.

Some people are saying it is none of our business, please She is a public figure so it is definitely our business. As fans we have a right to comment on what we like or don't. Taking the fans to be stupid to believe a blatant lie like that is not going to fly. What lip tool can cause the nose to become angular..
Unfortunately the competition amongst the Bollywood actresses has caused what was a natural beauty to tamper with her God-given features and the results are not pretty. For some actresses, cosmetic surgery worked I.e. PC but sadly hers is a cautionary tale. Don't get why these people can't have confidence in their acting ability rather than being vein about their looks. Vidya Balan is the exception to the rule.
I think if u are in the acting business then yes u r trying to please your viewers. Dont really like her mush so dont really care how she looks now but ya she looks crap and that is the fact.
You people really need to mind your own business ! Damn ! So many noisy people ! Whether she had gotten plastic surgery or not, isn't any of your guys' business ! Damn ! I'm not a fan of her, but leave her the heck alone for God's sake !
She looked strange in JTHJ
Dunno what she has done or not done but she has not changed to look better.
Her best look was in her first movie
After that..something has changed in her facial features
Hope she gets all that sorted out. Maybe she needs some advice from Madhuri and Juhi..who age very gracefully
