I have reached a position as an actor where I don't need to sign films to fill up time: Anushka Sharma

  • Print


As an actor, Anushka Sharma has gone from strength to strength, with credible performances, especially in two of her films that came out last year - Pari and Sui Dhaaga. She ventured into production fairly early, as a 27-year-old, with 2015's NH10.
That is the reason why she had chosen to go slow now. "In the past three years, I have been working in a fashion which was very hectic , and have done roles which were extremely demanding. In one calendar year to do a film like Pari, Sui Dhaaga and Zero, it's not easy and takes a toll on you. All are different, and required a lot of prep. You feel you want to sit back and take a call. I think I have reached that position and security as an actor in my career, where I don't need to do things or sign films just because I have to fill up time," she says. Incidentally, she was seen in a small role in last year's Sanju too.
Being a producer, I anyway have my hands full, we are doing some interesting work. We have been producing shows for streaming platforms, a film too. Those are things that also require my time, and in my case, it's very different. I am an actor at the same time. There are things that I do behind the scenes, which obviously people are not going to be privy to."
Allocating time to both roles, then, is imperative for the actor. "I want to be able to focus on that… I also want to be able to look back and see what I have done. I am satisfied with the work I have done. I have always been like that, picky with the work I have done. I have chosen different kinds of movies and roles for myself," Anushka ends.
