It appears Anushka Sharma's lip job is still the talk of the town, even after two years.

During an interview with Vogue Magazine, Anushka was again asked to comment on a temporary lip enhancement procedure she had undergone during the shoot of Bombay Velvet.

The Bollywood diva claimed her pout was the result of a lip enhancing tool and makeup techniques which were necessary back then for her where she played the role of a Jazz singer.

"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 told Vogue.

Earlier, the actor had even shared in a post on social media that she had "by no means gone 'under the knife ' or done any kind of 'plastic surgery' or undergone any intrusive procedure."

Anushka was trolled for her enhanced pout in February 2014 when she debuted them on an episode of Karan Johar’s popular show, Koffee with Karan.

On her upcoming film Sultan with Salman Khan, Anushka reveals, “I had to go through intense body training to build definition and muscle. I’m not heavily built, so I knew I was working with a disadvantage—I had to beat people’s perception that all wrestlers are huge."
