Bold and Fierce Anushka Sharma talks about facing rejections in Bollywood


via filmfares http://ift.tt/2xnPwm3
Anushka Sharma has efficiently proved her mettle as an actor in Bollywood. Starting her career opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan wasn't an easy game for her but with her consistency and hard work, this girl has surely come a long way. Her list of great films at the box-office is loud enough to speak of her career graph. 

But just like any new comer, she too faced her share of struggles before making it big in the Indian film industry. Speaking about her journey of struggles, Anushka got chatty with a popular daily. In her interview she said, "I have faced rejection from the age of 15. I don’t talk about it because there’s no need to do that. But, I was constantly getting dropped from shows, picked for an ad and then would get replaced. All that has happened to me, too. Obviously, all that is also an integral part of the industry and life in general. But to experience that at the tender age of 15, to be subjected and be judged purely on the basis of how you look, it can be very mentally damaging as well. It hits your self-esteem. I have dealt with it."

On being asked if she has been ill commented by any producer in the industry from her initial times until now. To this, Anushka said, "That hasn’t happened with me where someone is so vocal about what they feel. But when people go talking about things in a roundabout manner, 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. I feel it’s better if someone tells me to my face that you aren’t good-looking enough for the part. Samne hi bol do na! I prefer things to be said to me straight-up because otherwise, in that roundabout thing, you also are left confused."

Whatever said and done, down the line after all these years, Anushka has made her way through millions of hearts who love her for her work. Meanwhile, on the work front, she is currently shooting for Prosit Roy's Pari which also stars Parambrata Chatterjee opposite her in the film. The film is slated for its release  on February 9, 2018.

We are totally looking forward to this, you too?
