Bollywood superstar Anushka Sharma was drubbed by critics last year when she decided to get a lip job which blended with her Bombay Velvet character. The actress recently gave an interview in which she stated how the process was necessary for her character of a Jazz musician in Bombay Velvet.
“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,” she said.
Anushka Sharma’s surgical procedure had not gone down well with fans and critics alike, who were of the view that it had gone quite bad. Harsh tweets and insulting memes popped up over the internet, making the Bollywood actress a target of ridicule and abuse.
The actress has come a long way in the Indian film industry. Not only has she starred in blockbuster films such as Jab Tak Hai Jaan, NH10 and Pk, she became the youngest producer in India when she produced the flick NH10 at the age of 25.
The Pk actress will next be seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s upcoming movie Sultan, a wrestling flick in which Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will play the lead role. Anushka, who plays a female wrestler in the movie, has trained hard for the role and learnt professional moves from a trainer. Pictures of the actress displaying grappling moves as well as an impressive teaser trailer showed fans a glimpse of what her character in Sultan would be like.

It is quite brave of the Bollywood actress to come out and speak about her lip surgery, especially after being mocked and trolled over the years. Do you think her frank admission will induce more insults and jeers or will the masses take her conviction as an actress seriously this time?
