Against all rumors of quitting and taking a break, here’s what Anushka Sharma has to say about her being away from limelight:
Anushka Sharma was rumored of quitting her acting career! However, none of it is true, as the Zero actress openly speaks about her taking away from the limelight to focus on being a producer and taking a break as an actor post giving us phenomenal performances in Zero, Pari and Sui Dhaaga.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Anushka Sharma said, “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.”
Anushka added furthermore that she is keen on focusing on her production house, Clean Slate films, which is curating content for streaming platforms. “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. 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,” added the Sanju actress.
Moreover, Anushka also responded to previous rumors going rife that she wanted to stay away from limelight due to being pregnant or thinking about entering motherhood.
The actress had cleared the air and told Times of India, “I got married at a young age for a reason. If you are having a baby, it is something that no one can hide. You can still hide a marriage, but not the fact that you are pregnant.”
Meanwhile, Anushka is busy rooting and globe-trotting with and for Virat Kohli, as he gears up to face the big teams at the cricket World Cup.
