Wanted To Tell Good Stories, Create Great Roles For Women: Anushka Sharma On Turning Producer
Actor Anushka Sharma wants to back content that shatters the glass ceiling for women
Actor Anushka Sharma has taken it upon herself to provide clutter-breaking roles for women in the industry. As she basks in the success of her debut web series, the PK actress explains her decision to turn producer.
“I did not start producing films to make movies for me to star in. I just wanted to tell good stories. I would be sitting and talking to writers, discussing things with them and I would wonder why a certain type of films where not being written,” she said, as reported by ANI. “I realised that it was not very common for great roles to be constantly written for women in our industry. So, I wanted to take this step and create roles for actors who would fit right for the project. The vision was always to say stories which we believed were unconventional and unique,” she added.
She also mentioned that her parents have seen her debut web series and they were very proud as any parent would be of their children’s accomplishment.
