Remember when some of India's most photographed faces suddenly pop up one day looking significantly different from their original selves? In the words of Marvin Gaye, 'What's goin' on,' we ask.

When Anushka Sharma recently appeared on Koffee With Karan, she probably attracted more attention than she had bargained for.

And we aren't even talking about her much-publicised romance with cricketer Virat Kohli.

The discussion, soon after the show was aired, quickly veered to Anushka's rather odd-looking lips.

With Anushka, we take in stock other star actresses and how radically different they look now from the time they had started out.

One of the few naturally skinny girls in Bollywood, Kangna Ranaut, seen here in a still from her 2009 film Woh Lamhe, proceeded to meet industry standards of beauty after her early acting success.

Her naturally curly mane, pencil-thin eyebrows and that unconventional-looking lips have given way to a more mainstream face.

She may have been missing in action for quite a while now but Koena Mitra's botched plastic surgery was the talk of tinsel town for the longest time.

In one of her most recent pictures, the starlet looks eerily similar to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, if you look closely.

Rakhi Sawant's face has weathered so many changes, it's hard to tell the real one from all the others.
