After Anushka graced the cover of Vogue recently (the 27 April issue), Anushka Sharma’s interview with the fashion magazine has been quoted from extensively.The interview covered various aspects of Anushka’s life and career — including why setting up her production house Clean Slate was such a priority, who her closest friend is, dealing with trolls on Twitter — and that infamous lip job.
For it seems that over two years after her “puffy” lips were first seen on an episode of Koffee With Karan, they’re still a point of contention.
Right after the controversy first kicked up in 2014, Anushka took to social media to post an open letter to effectively present her side. She said that she had used a temporary filler and make-up techniques to make her lips appear fuller for her role in Bombay Velvet, an denied that she had gone ‘under the knife’ to effect the change.
In her latest Vogue interview, Anushka has once again explained why she decided to speak so openly about her lip job: “I have nothing to hide. So when I spoke about my lip job, a lot of people called me brave for coming out. But I did what I had to (for my role in Bombay Velvet). I’m not going to lie and say I didn’t; I had to take ownership. I wanted fans to know that I’m human and not perfect.”
