After stepping into Bollywood in 2008 with Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, actress Anushka Sharma has been on a roll — she’s produced films and owns a clothing line — despite her last film, Jab Harry Met Sejal, bombing at the box office.

However, she hasn’t quite lost the fire to achieve more. Sharma ventured into film production in 2014 and earlier this month, she launched her clothing line, Nush.

“I feel happy with what I have achieved so far, but I have miles to go and more ambitions. I hope to develop my entrepreneurial ventures further,” Sharma said when quizzed about the growth of her career graph.

However, the actress was firm when she said that she still wants to continue entertaining her fans.

“I want to continue working in roles and films that entertain, engage and are viewed in posterity as creatively qualitative. I haven’t achieved it all, there’s more to do in the years to come,” added Sharma.

A far cry from a young woman who had her first modelling assignment with designer Wendell Rodricks back in 2007, the NH10 actress has worked with Bollywood’s three Khans — Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir. The 29-year-old actress says rather than looking back at her journey and contemplating, she prefers to use the learning to do better.

“I prefer to take learnings and acquired understanding from my years in the film industry. Experience teaches you patience, consistency and persistence. I hope these will always define my work,” she said.

What has been more daunting — being an actress, producer or an entrepreneur?

“None of it is daunting, all of it is very enjoyable and exciting. I love doing all of it, and wish there was time to do even more,” she said.

DESIGNING DREAMS

Sharma describes her clothing line as “accessible high street fashion”. She says she wanted to create “everyday clothes for everyday events” that it is “built around Indian needs and sensibilities”.

The line caters to all sizes.

“It caters to women and girls from all age groups and also to all senses of styles,” she said.

“We have been working on creating an apparel line for over a year’s time. Now that we are confident about the product and our distribution across India, we have decided to go ahead and launch it,” she said.

On the film front, Shamra’s next is Pari and she says the role was challenging.

“Let’s just say the role challenged me and the film will hold up what we aim to do at Clean Slate Films — tell solid, engaging stories on cinema,” she added.

She will also be seen with actor Varun Dhawan in the upcoming film Sui Dhaaga — Made in India, touted as a story of self reliance, aimed to connect with every Indian.

“It’s very early to talk about Sui Dhaaga, but I am excited about the film, and look forward to shooting it.”

To be directed by Sharat Katariya and written by Maneesh Sharma, the film start filming from January next year. The film will hit screens in 2018.
