Anushka Sharma Opens Up On Making It Big In Bollywood As An Outsider
Anushka Sharma opens up about her journey from her debut with Yash Raj Films to her present success.
Anushka Sharma is one of the leading actresses in the Bollywood industry. She has not only helmed many blockbuster films but also has taken the producer’s chair in the last few years. Recently, she opened up about her journey as an outsider in the Bollywood industry. Anushka got her first break in Aditya Chopra’s romantic movie Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The movie did very well in the box office and she garnered positive reviews. Anushka says she was very clueless at the time of her debut and had no idea how big of a deal it was to be Aditya Chopra’s heroine.

Anushka adds that she took up acting as a profession purely on the basis of her instincts. She knew no one who was associated with the film industry. Like any other outsider, she worked hard and auditioned at many places. In one such audition, she bagged the role of Taani Sahni for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
She credits her success to the fact that she was unfamiliar with the workings of the film industry and also that she had no legacy to live up to. She had a sense of determination and confidence within herself. She expressed her gratitude towards Yash Raj Films and said that Aditya was the one who chose her on the basis of her talent. Anushka praised Yash Raj for always prioritising talent over connections. She said many actors like her got their break because YRF always backs the talent and not connections.
Anushka Sharma has acted in leading roles in many big films like Band Baaja Baarat, Dil Dharakne Do, Sanju, and many more. She has also established a production company along with her brother named Clean Slate Filmz which has produced gemstones like NH10, Phillauri, Pari, and Bulbul.
