Anushka Sharma is a different kind of actress, who has been in Bollywood for 7 years. Anushka is someone that many people, including girls, can relate to. There are so many facts that prove Anushka is the next big superstar of Bollywood. So far in her 7 years, Anushka has showed in many ways that she can be the next Kajol or Rani Mukherji or the next Anushka Sharma. Let’s take a look at who Anushka is and why she can be the next big thing in Bollywood.
1) She’s very honest
Actresses are known to not have a mind on their own in the movie business. Even if they do, they show it or speak about their mind openly. When Anushka came into Bollywood, she changed all that. In any interview that she has taken part in, Anushka has always been honest and she was not afraid to say out loud how actors are paid better and treated better in Bollywood or admit that she had her lip enhanced.
2) She made her debut with a superstar
Any fan of Shah Rukh Khan knows that Anushka Sharma made her debut in ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ opposite Shah Rukh Khan. She was a part time model before she was chosen from hundreds of girls to be in this film and when the film was released, she proved to everyone that she was the right girl for this film despite some people saying that she looked way too plain to be cast opposite a superstar.
3) She was a good actress at the beginning itself
It’s hard for actresses to prove that they are good at their jobs at the beginning of their careers. Usually, actresses work their way to the top of the ladder whether it’s perfecting their acting abilities or carving their own paths. Anushka broke this belief as she was critically praised for her performance in her first film. Needless to say, she got her own fan base too after that.
4) The first top actress to be a producer
In 2015, Anushka Sharma produced her own film. It’s the first time a top actress took a drastic step because most of the time, actresses only produce their own films when no one else wants to hire them. Despite having a range of producers and directors at her doorstep, Anushka chose to put her own money in ‘NH10’, which went on to be a hit at the box office.
5) She has worked with all the three khans
Anushka is currently working with Salman Khan in ‘Sultan’, which makes her a Khan all-rounder. This means that she’s one of the few actresses, who got to work with all the three Khans. She worked with Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ and ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. She has also worked with Aamir Khan in ‘PK’, which is India’s highest grossing film at the box office. All of the 3 Khans have praised her acting abilities and the person that she is.
6) She’s known for her friendly and talkative image
In her interviews, Anushka Sharma has always come across as someone, who’s not stuck-up because she’s not. Due to the roles she took on at the beginning of her career, Anushka started having this friendly and talkative image. In real life, she is like that as well. She has no problems talking to her fans or to anyone else.
7) She’s not scared to speak her mind
As she spent her time working in films in Bollywood and getting the experience, Anushka has started speaking about how the industry treats the men and the women differently. She has spoken about situations where the actors always get better hotel rooms than the actresses. She has always spoken about how the mind-set of people in India is in favour of the men more than the women. Whatever it is, Anushka is not afraid to say it as it is.
8) Her name is bankable in Bollywood
Despite having no godfather in Bollywood, Anushka made a name for herself and is a bankable star for Bollywood producers. She’s also bankable enough, as she has a huge fan following. So far, Anushka has not disappointed them.
9) She has a huge fan base
It didn’t take long for people to notice that Anushka Sharma has the talent to stay in Bollywood. Due to her huge fan base, Anushka has managed to last this long in Bollywood and be this bankable, as an actor. This is why Anushka is very careful when choosing the kinds of films that she does. Below is a picture of Anushka Sharma meeting with her special needs fan accompanied by another star, Ranveer Singh.
10) She comes from an army background
The reason why Anushka is not the kind of girl people can bully in the film industry is because she comes from an army background, as her father is a colonel in the army. She has said multiple times that she grew up in a discipline army background, where she was treated no different than her brother compared to the other families. Most importantly, she doesn’t take bull crap from anybody!
