New Delhi: Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma is young and full of energy. The tall and talented diva celebrates her birthday today and it would not be wrong to say that is a terrific performer. From making a smashing debut in Yash Raj Films' 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' opposite Shah Rukh Khan as a simple Punjabi girl Taani to Phillauri's ' friendly ghost'—Anushka has come a long way.

She started off her career as a professional model and bagged her first assignment for ace fashion designer Wendell Rodricks in 2007 before moving to Mumbai. After making a stunning debut in YRF's 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' in 2008, the actress went on to star in yet another venture by the production house titled 'Band Baaja Baaraat' and it was this 2010 blockbuster which made her a household name. The film was opposite Ranveer Singh, who made his debut with this film.

She even starred in Yash Chopra's 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' in 2012 which even made her win the Best Supporting Actress award at Filmfare. Then came the biggest success of her career 'PK' with Aamir Khan and yet another blockbuster 'Sultan' with Salman Khan.

Meanwhile, she even launched her own production house Clean Slate Films with brother Karnesh Sharma and her maiden venture 'NH10' received a warm reception.

With Ranbir Kapoor, she did two films, 'Bombay Velvet' and 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'. While the former bombed at the box office, the latter was a smashing superhit.

Recently, she starred in her second home production 'Phillauri' where she played a friendly ghost. The chirpy actress is currently working with SRK on Imtiaz Ali's yet-to-be-titled venture.

Here's wishing Anushka a very happy birthday!
