Anushka Sharma: I don’t compartmentalise myself


She has become a singer, a journalist, a wedding planner and a dance enthusiast in her onscreen journey in Bollywood. Actress Anushka Sharma says she doesn’t believe in putting herself in brackets and wants to explore the cinematic world as much as possible.

Off the screen, the PK actress also donned the producer’s hat with NH10 this year, but Anushka notes that acting holds a special place in her life and will continue to reign over her heart. “Acting has always been my passion and will remain so. I enjoyed playing the dual role – of an actor and producer. As a viewer, I really want to watch author-backed stories and there is something amazing about thrillers, the way it captivates your imagination…It was an interesting experience and a completely unexplored territory for me,” Anushka said in a statement.

“Also, I don’t compartmentalise myself. I really wanted ‘NH10′ to be made and being associated with it eased the entire process,” she added. After garnering rave responses, NH10 – a film which tells the story of a young couple whose road trip goes awry after a run-in with a group of violent criminals– is now set to be screened on TV.

The Navdeep Singh directorial will premiere on &pictures on October 31 at 8 p.m. Anushka is excited to bring the film to the small screen audience. “I’m glad to know that the movie is going to touch base with a large number of people now, since it’s hitting television screens. Also, the movie was certified ‘A’ in theatres, but now with a little tweaking, everybody can watch it in their homes. ‘NH10′ is very close to my heart for various reasons and I am very excited,” she said. Meanwhile, the actress is busy with the shooting of her upcoming film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, produced by Karan Johar.
