Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma is one of the finest actresses in the Indian film industry. Currently, she is focusing on her family and newborn baby, Vamika.
Anushka Sharma recently shared a fresh and casual picture with her fans from the Ageas Bowl stadium in Southampton. She went with her cricketer husband Virat Kohli as the Team India is set for the ICC World Test Championship final against New Zealand.
Anushka had come a long way in her career apart from proving herself as one of the most sought after leading ladies.
During an interview with DNA, the Zero actress opened up about being judged based on her looks at 15. Anushka talked about how the rejection affected her deeply; while continuing, and she now understands that it is all a part of the industry and life in general.
According to her, rejections at 15 can break someone entirely and can be mentally damaging as well. It hits your self-esteem, and she has dealt with it.
In the interview, she spoke about the indirect remarks the producers or casting directors would make on the sets. “I'm intelligent enough to understand what they are saying. They might just tell you, 'The look wasn't right'. That's an indirect way of talking about the physical aspect of you. It will always be backed by some politically correct statements, which is fake and to me, that's far more disrespectful," she had added.
Sharma was last seen in Zero; since then, she has not signed any film. However, she is active as a producer with her brother Karnesh Sharma in their production house named Clean Slate Filmz. Her next film, Qala, released on Netflix, will mark the debut of late Irrfan Khan’s son Babil Khan.
