When Shilpa Shetty got a lip job during filming their movie, Anil Kapoor protested, saying, “It threw my continuity for a toss”


Through his interviews, in which he frequently praises the work of others, and the pleasant way he conducts himself at industry events, actor Anil Kapoor has cultivated a likeable public presence. His prominence in the business was on display at his daughter Sonam Kapoor’s wedding in 2018, which was attended by the A-list of Bollywood.

However, there was a time when he didn’t hesitate to voice his views, regardless of how others would react to it. Anil Kapoor recently made several appearances on Koffee with Karan, but in a 2010 episode where he co-starred with Sanjay Dutt, he embraced the show’s contentiousness.

Anil spoke openly about a range of topics throughout the rapid fire round, including people’s appearances and the calibre of some big movies. When asked to name “the last face (he) saw that had a terrible botox job,” Anil paused to gather his thoughts. “How are you, sir? Lips pe how are they doing? (Wonder who…) He questioned Karan, “What do they do on their lips,” to which Karan responded, “Collagen.”

Can I say something about collagen, Anil continued? While filming Badhaai Ho Badhaai, Shilpa Shetty had her lips painted in a way that I didn’t like. My entire continuity was thrown out the window. Karan enquired, “Have her lips gotten bigger?” Her lips became larger, and Anil said, “You just shot for this film, and suddenly there will be continuity jump,” Her lips had gotten so thick; they were itne mote mote. But today, her lips look amazing.

He admitted that the most recent movie he had “walked out of” was Aamir Khan’s smash hit Ghajini because he “didn’t enjoy it.” When Abhay Deol publicly criticised the movie Ayesha, in which he costarred with Sonam, he claimed that Abhay “needed treatment” during the same rapid-fire round.

Anil’s most recent film appearance was in JugJugg Jeeyo, a romantic drama directed by Karan Johar that has earned more than Rs 60 crore at the box office since its debut in late June. Prior to that, he appeared in the back-to-back Netflix movies Thar and AK vs AK. With the recent releases of Nikamma and Hungama 2, Shilpa made her acting comeback. This week marks the start of season seven of Koffee with Karan.
