Despite her talent and beauty Bollywood star Anushka Sharma initially ‘vehemently refused’ to enter Bollywood, according to an interview.
The actress attributes those days to a protected life for someone coming from an army background. Her exposure to movies was limited. “When you’re not a part of an industry, your knowledge of that field is based on what you read and hear from others, and on the stereotypes that are attached to it.”
The whole perception changed when she went to audition for Aditya Chopra’s ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’. Though the film became a hit, she wasn’t branded ‘the next big thing’.
Recalling that there was nothing more than her work being appreciated then, the ‘Sultan’ actress told a daily, “I’ve gone through the phase where I’ve seen how fickle this place is. After ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’, I’ve seen people change. I’m glad my first film didn’t do that much for me, otherwise I wouldn’t have had this experience.” – CINEWS
