New Delhi: Bollywood actress-producer Anushka Sharma turns 33 today (May 1). The talented actress has been in Bollywood for more than a decade now and taken up unique roles that showcased her acting prowess.

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 donning a producer's hat—Anushka has surely come a long way.

To celebrate her birthday and her commendable work, let's take a look at her most memorable films: 

1. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008): Anushka kickstarted her career with Aditya Chopra's romantic drama and Shah Rukh Khan starrer in which she played the role of a young bride, Tani Sahni. The film was a huge commercial success for which Anushka earned Filmfare Award nominations for Best Actress and Best Female Debut.

2. Band Baaja Baaraat (2010): This romantic comedy co-starring Ranveer Singh was a big hit for Anushka's career. In the film, she played the role of an ambitious, middle-class Punjabi woman who starts a wedding planning business. Sharma claims this was a tough role for her as she had to learn the Punjabi dialect but she pulled it off brilliantly! For this film, she received a second nomination for Best Actress in the Filmfare Awards.

3. Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012): This film was Anushka's fifth collaboration with Yash Raj Films. She played the role of Akira Rai, a Discovery Channel reporter for which she won the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress. The film was a smashing success at the box office and became the third highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2012.

4.  PK (2014): Anushka shocked everyone with her new stylish bob-cut hairdo in Rajkumar Hirani's religious satire 'PK', in which she played a reporter. The film was widely praised and turned out to be the highest-grossing Bollywood film of the year.

5. NH10 (2015): This crime-thriller was produced by Anushka's production house Clean Slate Filmz. The film revolved around a married couple who are threatened by a group of criminals after an altercation.

6. Sultan (2016): The actress played a wrestler in the Ali Abbas Zafar film, and the film ranked among Indian cinema's biggest grossers.
