Anushka Sharma On 10 Years Of Bollywood: ‘Made A Career With Unconventional Choices’

Anushka Sharma On 10 Years Of Bollywood: 'Made A Career With Unconventional Choices'

nushka Sharma has completed 10 years in the movie business and the actor believes the reason for her successful run are the “unconventional” choices she has made as a performer, producer and an entrepreneur. Anushka, who carved a niche with films like Band Baaja Baaraat, PK, Sultan, NH10, made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in 2008 blockbuster Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.

“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 told PTI.

“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. The producer of critically acclaimed films like NH 10, Phillauri and Pari said the 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. 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 doing back-to-back films, Anushka 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.

The actor, however, has no plans to go slow when it comes to production.

“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-scene 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.

Anushka, who is currently busy promoting her upcoming film Zero with Shah Rukh and Katrina Kaif, is yet to sign any new project.

There were also reports of her soon starting the work on her next production Kaneda to be directed by NH 10 helmer Navdeep Singh, but Anushka said right now her banner is only focusing on ties with Prime Video and Netflix.

“I have that script (Kaneda). We are not in the process of doing it currently. 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,” she said.

Paoli Dam was to play the daughter’s role in the film initially, but she isn’t being able to be a part of the project due to prior commitments. “I am feeling really sad that I will not be a part of the film due to my prior commitment which is incidentally clashing with the shooting dates of this film,” Paoli said in a statement.

Kangana replaces Deepika as Bollywood’s highest paid actress

Bollywood’s bold and beautiful starlet Kangana Ranaut has replaced Deepika Padukone in the Hindi film industry as the highest paid actress.

With a whopping salary of INR 14 crores Kangana has overtaken Deepika as the undisputable queen of the box office.

According to media reports, Kangana charged a hefty 14 crores for Rani Laxmibai character she was roped in for in the biopic ‘Manikarnika’.

Bollywood’s notorious gender wage gap where male protagonists get paid almost double the amount as their female counterparts was broken by Deepika Padukone when she was remunerated more than Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh for her role in ‘Padmaavat’.

Kangana amazes Hollywood stunt director

Kangana Ranaut will be seen as Manikarnika Tambe aka Rani of Jhansi in her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. In the recently revealed teaser of the film, Kangana looked extremely convincing while taking on the enemies, riding the horse, and attacking them with swords, guns or the bow and arrow.

In a conversation with the media, Hollywood stunt director Nick Powell was all praise for the Queen star as he revealed that Kangana insisted on doing all the action sequences by herself which left him impressed with her immense dedication. Interestingly, Powell has worked with Hollywood biggies like Gladiator fame’s Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and many others.

He also told, “The idea was to show a warrior who has been learning the ropes from a young age. Kangana practised sword fighting for eight hours a day, and convincingly pulled off each stunt. I have worked with the likes of Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, but she gave me the unique experience in which an actress was leading the pack. There were times when she pulled off smoother stunts than Tom Cruise.”
