Anushka Sharma: Read my lips!
When Anushka Sharma decided (last night) that she would open her now-infamous lips and speak her piece on her recent “change in appearance,” she chose Twitter to reach out to her fans. Of course 140-characters wasn’t going to cut it, so Anushka’s post appears in a TwitLonger link. “Hellooooo everyone !! Today I am here to talk about my lips !!” she begins (sic), writing on about how she feels the need to present her case since her appearance on Koffee with Karan sparked a nationwide debate on whether the young actress had dabbled (unsuccessfully) with plastic surgery. “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 writes, unafraid to laugh at herself.
Apparently the sexy Sharma girl has been “using a temporary lip enhancing tool” and that, along with make-up techniques that she has picked up over the years were responsible for her KWK lip-look. “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,” Anushka adds, finally chalking it all down to an attempt to get in character for her upcoming film Bombay Velvet. By her own admission, she plays a jazz singer in the Sixties and Seventies and the lips were “taken from the referencing of that time.”
With so much said already, we find ourselves at a loss for words. We’ve never known jazz singers to have any particular kind of lips — only a particular kind of sound. We are also at a loss to understand why talk of plastic surgery bothers everyone so much, when there is estimated to be a $36 billion global market for cosmetic surgery (of which India actively covets a sizable share). Now this is just my opinion, but I think the best thing Anushka Sharma can do with her lips right now is keep mum. It is by far the best way to let a bad situation blow over!
