Bollywood diva Anushka Sharma has successfully completed 10 years in the Hindi film industry and she believes that the reason behind this amazing run is the “unconventional” choices that she has made as a performer, producer and an entrepreneur. Anushka, who marked her debut opposite King Khan in 2008 blockbuster Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, has carved a niche with movies like Band Baaja Baaraat, PK, Sultan, NH10 to her credit.
“I have always made unconventional choices because it comes from my instincts. I have been successful with those unconventional choices. I have made a career with unconventional choices and that’s why I have created a different standing for myself in the film industry,” Anushka said in an interview.
“I believe luck favours the brave. I wasn’t doing it thinking it is risky. I was doing it because that made sense for me. For me following my instincts is an easier thing,” she added. Producing critically acclaimed movies including Phillauri, NH 10 and Pari, she said that the main focus on content has helped her company Clean Slate Films flourish.
“Whether content is in a big or a small film, it will always work. The audience looks for entertainment. If anyone thinks they are above content then they are making a big mistake. Content is over stars, directors or everything else,” she added.
After giving back-to-back movies this year, the gorgeous beauty has decided to take time in choosing a new project as she now feels a bit secure about her place in the industry.
“I felt I was working round the clock and my life is in the hands of everybody and whoever I had to give time to. I want to take time and pick films that I want to choose. I am in talks with few people. I have reached a level of security and position where I can take the time to do a film that I want to do. I am not a newcomer who has to do films for the heck of it. Even when I was a newcomer I was not doing it. I am ok with that. I have gained that position,” she said.
However, she has no plans of slowing down her production company. “The show that we are doing for Amazon Prime Video and for Netflix does require time. If I am producing a film in which I am acting, I have taken out time from my schedule to do it. Here I have to take out time. It is a behind-the-scenes job so one might not see it but that requires time. I am an actor who produces films also. And that is not slowing down,” she said.
On the work front, Anushka is busy promoting her forthcoming film Zero with Shah Rukh and Katrina Kaif. The film is scheduled to release on December 21st, 2018.
