Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Anushka Sharma, (left) who has been part of the Hindi film in­dus­try for the past eight years, has said she owes her suc­cess to her first direc­tor, Aditya Cho­pra. She made her de­but with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008 ), op­po­site Shah Rukh Khan.

The 28-year-old ac­tor says, “I have got good films and I am thank­ful to Aditya Cho­pra. He put a lot of faith in me. When­ever I work on any Yash Raj film, I feel that they be­lieved in me and that’s why I have been able to be in films to­day. I had no con­nec­tion with movies apart from watch­ing them. My jour­ney has been good and by God’s grace, I have not changed.”

With this, Anushka stressed on the fact that she is a “self-made woman” from a “nor­mal back­ground”, who “wants to make the most” of the present time. “I treat my act­ing ca­reer with a lot of re­spect. Women are do­ing quite well in var­i­ous fields — be it in cos­tume de­sign­ing, di­rec­tion, edit­ing, pro­duc­tion; they are work­ing ev­ery­where now. Writ­ers are pen­ning sto­ries with female leads and the films are do­ing well at the box of­fice. It is an in­ter­est­ing time, and as an ac­tress, I want to make the most of it,” she adds.

Anushka, who be­gan her ca­reer in 2008 and rose to promi­nence with films like PK (2014) and NH10 (2015) is gear­ing up for next re­lease with Sal­man Khan. Other than that, the ac­tor will be seen in Karan Jo­har’s next and has wrapped up her sec­ond movie as a pro­ducer where she will also act.
