Mumbai: It is raining offers for actress Anushka Sharma, who has been flooded with several films in Bollywood. The Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl star, who is currently working with Shahrukh Khan in Yash Chopra's untitled movie, has recently bagged Raju Hirani's Peekay. Now, she is likely to feature in Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet, which stars Ranbir Kapoor in the male lead.
Bombay Velvet is a drama film based on 'Mumbai Fables', which is a semi-fictional study of Bombay in 1960s by eminent historian and Princeton University's history professor Gyan Prakash. It is reported that Ranbir Kapoor has recommended Anushka Sharma's name for the female lead in the movie and makers of the film are currently in talks with the actress for the role.
But Anushka Sharma is keeping mum on the issue. The Bollywood actress has neither confirmed nor denied the news. Talking to PTI, Anushka said, "I can't talk about things till it is confirmed. The announcement will come at the right time." The actress added, "I am looking to work with Anurag Kashyap."
The bubbly actress will also be seen alongside Imran Khan in director Vishal Bharadwaj's upcoming movie Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. Talking about the film, Anushka Sharma said, "We have finished shooting for the film. I am happy to work with Vishal and Imran. The best part about Vishal's film is the characters are so well written. It is an entertaining film."
However, Anushka's Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola is likely to release in January in 2013. Currently, she is shooting for Yash Chopra's upcoming romantic drama, which is yet to be titled. After completing it, she is expected to take up the filming for Aamir Khan-Raju Hirani's next combo movie Peekay.
