Bollywood star Anushka Sharma has something to say. In a post on Twitter, she takes on the criticism of her recent appearance on the TV talk show Koffee with Karan. Anushka's Twitter post on Monday begins: "Hellooooo everyone !! Today I am here to talk about my lips !! Yes ! There ! I said it .. My lips !"
After the episode aired on Sunday night, her odd-shaped mouth received a whole lot of attention online with tweets like:
kaveri @ikaveri: With Anushka Sharma succumbing to plastic, Parineeti Chopra is the only natural looking face existing on big screen now.
Jamal Shaikh @JamalShaikh: They say couples start looking like each other after they've been together long. Take Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's pouts for instance...
"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.
She elaborates: "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."
This doesn't mean you have to like the way she looked on Koffee. In fact, Anushka doesn't herself: "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."
