Anushka Sharma has been drawing a lot of attention over the changing looks of her lips. And her recent appearance in Karan Johar's chat show, 'Koffee With Karan', added to the speculation of her getting a lip job. Here's her version of the story...

Anushka took to microblogging site Twitter on Monday night and admitted to getting a lip enhancement done, but a temporary one. She denied having gone under the knife to get a plastic surgery 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," she wrote.

According to the actress, the new look was zeroed in for her upcoming film 'Bombay Velvet',a period drama where she plays a jazz singer in the 1960's - 70's and the look was taken from the referencing of that time.

Anushka took to the social network to make the clarification as the story about her lips had taken "a scary direction and things had been 'blown out of proportion'." She also mentioned that some of the jokes doing the rounds brought a smile to her lips.
