Anushka Sharma: Did she, didn’t she?

The Band Bajaa Baraat gal makes her appearance on Koffee with Karan and looks like she had a little…err…work done on her lips….

We like Anushka Sharma. Honest. She is spontaneous, hard-working, stylish and not a bad actor either. Her uninhibited performances made even a bad film like Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola fun – in the parts where she did her thing, we mean. And we want to see her in Bombay Velvet, pitted against the undoubted talent of Ranbir Kapoor. That she is getting into production with NH 10 is something we approve of and her frankness and enthusiasm are always infective. And she can be really funny when she wants to be, which translates on to the big screen nicely.

All that adds up to a very straightforward and take-me-as-I-am personality. So what happened to that honesty when it comes to her looks, we want to know. What are we talking about? Buzz has it that she has had a little ..err… work done on her lips, to make them more pouty and generous. If you look at her in Koffee with Karan this weekend, you will notice that she does seem rather different, and very odd in a not-so-nice way. The hairstyle does not help, nor does that fact that she is trying to hide her relationship – whatever it might be – with cricketer Virat Kohli from the general public and stop host Karan Johar from praising anything out of her as she sits on the black leather couch with Bombay Velvet director Anurag Kashyap for company. Her spokesperson insists that Anushka has not opted for any surgical intervention, but is using lip plumper. Which could be a fact, we admit, since that stuff does add a little extra oomph to any pout, but there is something else that has changed with our fave actor and we cannot put our collective finger on it.

Any ideas what Anushka has done to herself, BollywoodLifers?
