Gripped with anxiety and insecurity, many Bollywood divas have gone under the knife which has lead to a deserted career owing to deserted looks. Many must have heard about the recent catastrophe brought over by Anushka Sharma’s lips. It all started with the recent episode of Koffee with Karan featuring Anurag Kashyap and Anushka Sharma. Things started to ‘swell’ real ugly from that day.
Only a few films old, Anushka has proved her prowess in the field of acting. She dazzled her fans with her vivacious looks and a vibrant smile. The diva looked rather dowdy that night. With an unkempt hair-do, a plonky sitting posture and an ill-fitted outfit, she blabbered about her relationships and also made a boo-boo (calling former Chief Minister Ashok Chavan the current CM of Maharashtra). Is that why all of social media took to attacking her?
Every couch potato, self-proclaimed fashion police, Tweeples and Facebook users came together and bombarded each others’ news feeds. Comments were made, photos were shared and memes did the rounds on social media. The public mood became extremely rancid. But what exactly did Anushka do wrong?
Anushka Sharma is no stranger to controversies, especially the ones pertaining to her personal life. Sore from the wound, the starlet vented her anger on social media. In an open letter to her fans and her detractors she made an official statement. Read on:
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
Bollywood stars Karan Johar and Sonam Kapoor applauded Anushka for the bang-on reply to the criticism.
The diva took a gutsy step to take on the criticism. And we definitely love her wicked sense of humor. Way to go Anushka !
