Anushka Sharma has got the men and the women of the country swooning over her with her beautiful looks and powerful performance in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Whether it's her acting abilities or the choice of her films, she's towering over all her contemporaries, slowly and steadily.
Anushka Sharma had no godfather in the industry and she struggled a lot to taste this fame. She made every girl believe that dreams do come true if you are passionate about your work. There are so many reasons that makes her different from her contemporaries and today we will talk about the 7 reasons why she is not your typical Hindi film heroine.
Check them out below.
Anushka Is Not Afraid To Speak Her Mind, Even If It Involves A Superstar Like Salman Khan
We have seen actresses going gaga over Salman Khan but Anushka Sharma is perhaps the only actress who openly said that Salman is very intimidating and makes no efforts to make you comfortable, "I don't know him at all. Salman is intimidating and he is not someone who would go out of his way to make you feel comfortable. He's going to be himself and he'll just do his thing. We don't have that kind of an equation where we have conversations." Daring, we say!
We Are (NOT) Just Friends!
Anushka Sharma has always been very vocal about her relationship with Virat Kohli, "I won't hide (the relationship) behind dark car windows or use the back entrance, but I won't talk about it because it eclipses everything else I do or say." Thanks Anushka for sparing us the same old cliché reply that we are just friends!
She Went For A Lip Job & Had The Guts To Admit It!
Well, we have often heard that honesty is the best policy! But not many actresses follow this mantra except Anushka, "I have nothing to hide. So when I spoke bout my lip job, a lot of people called me brave for coming out. But I did what I had to (for my role in Bombay Velvet). I'm not going to lie and say I didn't. I had to take ownership. I wanted fans to know that I'm human and not perfect."
No Politically Correct Answers
We all know about Salman Khan's ''I felt like a raped woman comment'', while many celebrities gave politically correct answers on the same, Anushka, who was promoting Sultan with Salman at that time, didn't think twice to say that he made an insensitive remark, '' We obviously understand that it was rather insensitive. People must have realised that this is not a word that can be used so loosely. All of us, not just celebrities, have a responsibility towards what they speak."
A Top Actress Who Is Also A Producer
Anushka Sharma is a deadly combination of beauty with brains! In 2015, Anushka took a decision of producing her own film NH 10, which was a hit. In Bollywood actresses take this path when their career is over but Anushka Sharma is here to make some new rules! Atta girl!
Her Struggle Is Real
Anushka Sharma had herself revealed that unlike Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh she did not become an overnight star but struggled a lot to reach where she is today, "My biggest hit was Band Baajaa Baaraat. While we were promoting our movie, no one was willing to interview me. Even after my first film, I didn't become an overnight star like Ranbir, Ranveer or Deepika. No one put me on the covers of magazines and called me the next big thing. I stayed put, as I really wanted to act in films that I am proud of.'' Well, Anushka, we must say that you have reinvented yourself with every film!
She Is Definitely Not Dumb!
Many people believe that Bollywood actresses are only about looks and are dumb. Well, it seems they have not read what Anushka Sharma has to say to them, "If you're asking for something that you think you deserve, you're a bitch. She has an attitude problem. Isko kitna attitude hai! We aren't dumb. We haven't come this far in life being floozies. All the actresses in the industry are smart. People tell me you are like an activist. So I say, Am I an activist? Why Am I an activist? They say, because you are saying these kinds of things - that makes you an activist. I think people don't like women with guts in this industry.'' More power to you girl!
In Bollywood if a film becomes successful the credit of it goes directly to the hero of the movie. But there are very few actresses who have the power to leave a mark in the audience's heart and Anushka Sharma is one of them.
Before Ae Dil Hai Mushil released people were only talking about Aishwarya Rai and Ranbir Kapoor but once the movie got released, Anushka Sharma won the show!
And lastly, we have just one thing to say....Alizeh (Anushka's character in ADHM), it was a delight to watch you on the big screen! Keep rocking and stay just as you are!
