Anushka Sharma completes 10 years in Bollywood, credits her success to unconventional choices

A decade ago today, Anushka Sharma entered Bollywood. It was a dream debut for her as she started her movie career opposite Shah Rukh Khan in an Aditya Chopra directorial – Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Post that, she made some really brave choices as an actress and carved a niche for herself.

Speaking about her journey so far, Anushka told Press Trust Of India (PTI) that she owes her success to the unconventional roles and films. “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,” she said.

“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.

After proving her mettle as a performer, Anushka started her own production house by the name Clean Slate Films and backed movies like NH 10, Phillauri and Pari.

For her, what matters the most while taking up a project is the content. “Whether content is in a big or a small film, it will always work. 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,” Anushka said.

After a hectic 2018, she is now in no hurry to sign a new film. “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.

Anushka will now be producing shows and films for the digital platform and wants to keep her focus on that. “We have our hands full with a series that we are doing with Amazon Prime Video and the movie that we are producing for Netflix. I also have a script (Kaneda) but we are not in the process of doing it currently,” she said.
