Actress Anushka Sharma made an announcement on the micro blogging site twitter that she had not gone under the knife and cleared the air about the rumored lip surgery.
She wrote: “.. 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 ;) ) ... “
The actress said she had been using a temporary lip enhancing tool and that was the reason for the change in the appearance of her lips.
“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, “ Sharma said.
The actress said she took such a decision for her look in the upcoming film Bombay velvet, a period drama where she plays a jazz singer in the 1960's - 70's.
“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 ,” Sharma said in her twitter blog.
She tickled a funny bone as she added “now if someday my legs appear different and sexy to you ! Please don't say I've done 'Something' ... “.
During Koffee With Karan Season 4, When Karan Johar prodded her on her alleged relationship with cricketer Virat Kohli, Anushka continued to blush and was a bundle of giggles. All she could manage to say was, 'Shut up Karan!'.
Karan Johar also took to the micro-blogging site to support the actress.
