‘Young ac­tors are liv­ing on the edge’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Monika Rawal Kukreja monika.rawal@htlive.com

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.”
