about my modeling work Anushka Sharma
For a girl coming from modeling background to play a non-glamorous character convincingly in her first film may not be commonplace in Bollywood, but Anushka says she was quite comfortable in this transition from ramp to reel.
"Even modelling is a kind of performance. On the ramp you are representing a concept. In a film, you're projecting an individual. But the transition wasn't hard for me. Because in real life I'm as simple as the girl I play in 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi'. Yes, I do like to dress up and walk the ramp. But that isn't the real me," Anushka is quoted by IANS.
The girl says she loves modeling and had never thought of entering Bollywood until ‘Rab Ne…’ happened.
"I'm crazy about my modeling work. I love the ramp and the backstage banter. I moved to Mumbai a year ago. Movies were not a priority. I don't come from a film background, don't know how the industry works. I didn't know anyone here," Anushka is quoted.
Despite having no experience in films, Anushka did a commendably good job in her very first movie and got many compliments and good reviews as well. But the best compliment came from Yash Chopra .
"He (Yash Chopra) came up to me and said mine was one of the best performances he had seen by a debutante. He placed his hand on my head while saying this. So he was blessing me," Anushka is quoted.
Presently, Anushka has two more projects coming up with Yashraj Films
The newcomer is receiving compliments from all and sundry, but says the best came from Yash Chopra himself.
“He came up to me and said mine was one of the best performances he had seen by a debutante. He placed his hand on my head while saying this. So he was blessing me,” said Anushka.
Unlike other Yash Raj Films heroines, she was not presented with the poised finesse and sophistication associated with the banner.
The newcomer defends the banner, saying: “You’re right. Even when actresses are presented as seedhi-saadhi (girl next door) in a Yash Raj film, they are glamorous. And coming from a glamour background I wouldn’t have minded being glossy in my first film. But you know what?
“This was such a huge opportunity. I couldn’t have asked for more. I fell in love with my character and the film. It’s a dream role for any debutante. I can always get into a chiffon sari in the next Yash Raj movie. Or the one after that….”
Although “Rab Ne…” is Anushka’s first film, she wasn’t over-instructed for her role.
“Adi never told me what to do beyond a point. In fact, he gave me the liberty to interpret my character the way I wanted after making me read the lines. Imagine a newcomer getting so much freedom in her first film!
“I must have given Ravi Chandran (director of photography) so much grief. I knew nothing about camera angles. I didn’t even understand focus marks. Shah Rukh was doing that for me. Adi and Shah Rukh made things so comfortable for me. These things matter a lot when you’re starting out.”
Commenting on her co-star, Anushka says she was always a huge Shah Rukh fan.
“My dad is in the army and when they would’ve these functions in the mess, I’d dance to Shah Rukh’s ‘Kitabe bahut si padhi hogi’ from ‘Baazigar’. I must’ve been three at that time.
“I wasn’t just Shah Rukh’s fan. I’m his big admirer. I always loved the way he conducted himself. Now after having worked with him, I love him even more. ‘Rab Ne…’ was like my school where Shah Rukh and Adi were my teachers.”
