Anushka Sharma is the ’brand ambassador’ of the Young and Restless Gen-Next.
In a short time span, she has already proved that she is powerhouse of talent. With her recent back-to-back hits –Anushka Sharma is B-town’s new sweetheart and she knows it. The actor, who's a rom-com regular with her girl-next-door image is all set to get pulses racing with her hot new avatar in Ladies vs Ricky Bahl.
Anushka doesn't like being labelled glamorous. The actor, who's hot property after the success of her film Band Baaja Baaraat says, "It's one of the most abused words, it's just about pretty clothes and good makeup." With the good work she gets to do, the four-film-old actor also has to deal with the other side of the glam world — rumours and controversies.
When you meet the right guy, things just fall in place. When I meet a guy who makes me laugh, he will make me crave for
Rumours- controversies- link-ups:
It's become fashionable to generate buzz through link-ups. The funny part is that I have been linked with all the married stars. I'm friendly with my co-stars and have a healthy relationship with them. Some of them are really nice and protective. But I don't lead my life according to what people say. I’m 23. Don’t you think it’s normal for me to hang out and go for movies with people my age?
I like him, he’s attractive but we two are very different people. I need to be with a man, who can calm me down otherwise it would not be a good relationship. We (Ranveer and Anushka) had a very volatile relationship, we can actually kill each other.I can bite his head off, he can take mine off. Ranveer is too self-absorbed to be in a relationship.
I need someone who can give me enough time. Strangely life keeps throwing us together all the time, from being in films to performing at award functions. Now we are doing Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl together. I feel very protective about him and I am sure he feels that way about
I have been a model since I was 15, but I never wanted to be an actor. My modelling company sent my pictures to Yashraj. Aditya Chopra liked them and called me for an audition for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. When I saw the setup at Yashraj, I was really impressed. It was so principled and correct that it seemed better than modelling to me. And, when I met Adi, any negative notions I had about the industry vanished. One of the reasons I got that role was because I didn’t want it so badly. Tani’s character needed that innocence, that
Long-term contract with Yash Raj Films:
No I'm not. I will work with anybody. Fortunately, I'm getting to work with A-listers. Aditya Chopra has a lot of respect for my talent. If he finds me good enough for a script, then so be it. When I made my debut I thought people are going to be really nice to me. I was a big fool to think that. Everybody is waiting to pull you down. There are very few people in the industry whom I respect and trust, Aditya Chopra is one of them.
After BBB my growth is a lot faster. To get that kind of respect at such a young age is a huge thing. I’m in the happiest phase of my career. In this industry where people make you feel like you are the biggest person in the world. Everything is at your disposal. That’s scary. Right now I’m just trying to hold the wheel really steady. My friends and family help me stay that way. Although I see the pretenses of this industry, I come back home to normal people who talk about normal things. The difference between what I do and where I live is huge. My mum still screams at me because my room is dirty. And my friends still expect me to stand outside a kathiroll-wala and eat with them. I am flaky and can get lost. But they are so much in touch with reality that it keeps me grounded.
I have a long list of directors I want to work with. Nelson Mandela once said your journey continues as long as you live. I don’t want to be acting all my life. After a point I want to completely cut off from it and lead a normal life. But this phase of my life is all about being a commercial actress. It will culminate when I have had the satisfaction of working with all the directors I have ever wanted to work with, playing all the roles I ever wanted to and having the most plum projects come my way. Then I will happily step down.
