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.
