‘Young actors are living on the edge’
With her debut films Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) followed by box-office hits such as PK (2014) and Sultan (2016), actor Anushka Sharma is among those few leading ladies in Bollywood who’s shared screen space with all three Khans. Earlier, she had shared screen space with newer actors of her generation including Ranveer Singh, Sushant Singh Rajput, Imran Khan among others.
Ask her how different it was working with senior actors and Anushka says, “Of course, there’s a difference in terms of their approach towards acting. Khans come with a lot more experience, so you can always find something new to learn from them and their life experiences – both personal and professional.”
The 28-year-old adds that the fresh lot of actors are still taking time to adjust to the ways of the industry and have a long way to go to match up to the standards set by Khans. “We are still consciously coming to terms with what we do, but they are always on this auto plot mode in terms of work. They just know what happens in between shots. They have managed to achieve a sense of calmness. I guess we, young actors, are still kind of always living on the edge.”
Meanwhile, the actor who has been linked with cricketer Virat Kohli for a long time now, took to social media and lashed out at ‘bogus claims’ about her rumoured beau producing her next film. Expressing her displeasure, she wrote, “I am more than capable of producing and promoting my own films. By making such bogus claims not only are you disrespecting me, but also, all the people who have worked on this film.”
