Mumbai: Newbie Anushka Sharma is the fourth Bollywood beauty to have impressed India’s grand old artist MF Husain. The legendry painter, who had earlier made paintings of Madhuri Dixit, Tabu and Amrita Rao, now desires to immortalize the young actress on a canvas with the fine strokes of his paintbrush and name it ‘Punjab ki Kudi’.

Husain, who has watched ‘Band Baaja Baarat’ over seven times, has been bowled over by the beauty. He has even expressed his wish to meet the lady in person and wants to invite her to his home in Qatar.

Talking to a news daily, a source revealed, "After Madhuri, Tabu and Amrita Rao, Hussainsaab finds Anushka extremely charming. He wants to make her painting and name it `Punjab Ki Kudi`. He wishes to meet her personally. Hussainsaab has already watched ‘Band Baaja Baraat’ eight times."

Husain is going gaga for this Punjabi kudi. Confirming the news of Anushka’s painting, the actress’s spokesperson said, "Yes Hussainsaab has been showering Anushka with compliments. But we have not had a direct dialogue with him so far. A well-known film critic did get in touch with us saying that Hussainsaab is extremely impressed with Anushka.”

“Once we contact the artist, we will think of the next course of action. We have so far not received any invitation from him directly. This is something that cannot be kept under wraps”, added the spokesperson.
