I’m lucky to have worked with all top actors: Anushka
Mumbai: Bollywood newbie Anushka Sharma, who made her dream debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’, recently walked the ramp in the capital.
Anushka, who was a model before joining Bollywood bandwagon, reminisces of her catwalk days while talking to a news daily as she says, “I was very comfortable wearing the outfit, but honestly speaking I was very nervous when I started walking the ramp. It was after a long time that I was walking the ramp. The moment I stepped on the ramp I saw the crowd cheering clapping and shouting and that left me felt a bit nervous. But the most memorable moment was when I saw myself leading the other senior models on the ramp. It reminded me of my modelling days when I would follow the senior models on the ramp and this time I was leading the way."
Talk of her B-town innings and the actress lights up. Eagerly awaiting the release of her upcoming flick ‘Patiala House’, Anushka is all excited about her role opposite Akshay Kumar and shares her experience of working with international cricketers. "It was a mind blowing experience for me to shoot for ‘Patiala House’. It was a different experience altogether to act along with international cricketers and commentators. We were shooting at Oval stadium in London, and I enjoyed standing along with the cricketers in the open stadium. Frankly, I have no knowledge about cricketers but when I was asked to shoot along with some international cricketers I didn`t want to miss the chance. I really enjoyed shooting with them on the sets. In fact my brother, Karnesh Sharma, who used to play under 19 in the Bangalore Ranji team, pestered me to take him for the shooting. He is crazy about cricket, unlike me. So, he was there along with me during the shoot just to watch all the live action that was happening on the field," she says.
Anushka, who debuted opposite SRK feels extremely lucky as she admits, "I`m fortunate and lucky to have worked with all top actors of Bollywood. Despite being such a big actor, Akshay made me feel very comfortable throughout the shoot. We would have loads of fun during the shoot. But the greatest excitement was my interaction with yesteryear`s hottest couple – Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia – during the shoot of the movie. I`d never thought that I would get an opportunity to work with such legendary stars."
Well, quiz her about her dream role and she says, "I don`t think many may agree to what I would say. But I honestly feel if there would be a remake of the movie ‘Dil Se’ then I would love to essay Manisha`s role in the film. It is unfortunate that the movie did not send cash registers ringing at the Box Office, but according to me, it is one of the most beautiful romantic movies to be made in Bollywood."
Currently, Anushka is busy shooting for ‘Band Baaje Baarat’, a Yash Raj flick where she will be sharing screen space opposite a newcomer - Ranvir. "It is a Yash Raj movie and I`m highly excited about being part of the Yash Raj family, yet again. Moreover, it would be a great challenge for me to act with a new actor," Anushka says.
