In con­ver­sa­tion with Bol­ly­wood ac­tress Anushka Sharma

Hair - - Front Page -

Ever since she made a splash in Bol­ly­wood in 2008, star­ring along­side su­per­star Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi as the soft-spo­ken Tani, Anushka Sharma has been in the news; be it for her re­la­tion­ship with an ace crick­eter or her re­cent lip en­hance­ment fra­cas. But the no-non­sense, svelte ac­tress chooses to let her work do the talk­ing, like she did when es­say­ing the role of the feisty and bold Farah Ali in Zoya Akhtar’s latest, Dil Dhadakne Do. It seems things are go­ing well for the star with news of her up­com­ing film di­rected by Karan Jo­har, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and also, her re­cent endorsement deal. Anushka has been signed on as the face of the new, best ever Pan­tene. In a con­ver­sa­tion with the ac­tress, we chat­ted about her hair and skin care regime, among other things. Here are ex­cerpts from the in­ter­view...

You now rep­re­sent Pan­tene as their new brand am­bas­sador. Tell us a lit­tle bit about this as­so­ci­a­tion and how you de­cided to come on­board.

Well, it feels great! The big­gest rea­son, of course, is that the new and im­proved Pan­tene truly works for me. With ev­ery wash I can re­ally feel my hair get­ting stronger, shinier and more man­age­able.

You’ve also re­cently turned veg­e­tar­ian. How im­por­tant is your diet as an ac­tress?

Eat­ing right is very, very im­por­tant to me. I have turned veg­e­tar­ian since the last 10 months and I love it. I drink a lot of wa­ter and eat a lot of fruits and veg­gies. I be­lieve one shouldn’t starve them­selves but sim­ply eat healthy.

Ev­ery girl has bad hair days. How do you deal with yours?

I just tie it up in a top knot bun if I ever have a bad hair day! The good thing is that it is a trend­ing look cur­rently, so that works out well for me, thank­fully!

We know you love flaunt­ing a high pony­tail or waves in your hair, but what would you say is your sig­na­ture, go-to hairdo?

Hon­estly, it de­pends on the out­fit and what looks best with it.

I was never a fan of two plaits; I was quite tomboy­ish in school so the most I would do is some­times tie my hair in a pony­tail.

Your one #BestEver hair care tip for our read­ers…

One thing I’ve learnt from all my hair ex­perts is to al­ways use both, sham­poo and con­di­tioner in ev­ery wash. Sec­ond, choose prod­ucts that will do all the hard work for you and give you healthy, shiny hair. Choose prod­ucts that fo­cus on mak­ing your hair strong from within—that is the real se­cret to beau­ti­ful hair.
