Anushka Sharma: People said I'm ugly

AnushkasharmaAnushka Sharma said: "People said I’m ugly. It used to bother me a lot."

Anushka Sharma completes five years in the movie business. In this interview, she talks about finding her groove, falling in love with the craft, turning producer with NH 10, dealing with haters, tweeting her craziness and Virat Kohli.

Ques: You complete five years in the industry. How do you look back at your journey so far?

Anushka: Five years and I've only done seven films. When I started out I wasn't sure how I should be. I was told ki 'actresses aisi hoti hain...' I was very confused. It's not that I'm not confident but I'm very shy. I start palpitating when I'm with new people. For a year-and-a-half after 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' I didn't even have a PR person or a manager. I styled myself. I was struggling to find my groove — who should I be. After much soul searching I've realised that I'm comfortable with myself. This is how I am.

Ques: You've turned producer with 'NH 10'. Did you always want to produce a film?

Anushka: Never. I was standing in my balcony with my business manager, Ashish, and I was talking to him about the script and I said that I want to produce it. It was an off-the-cuff remark. Ashish nodded and said that if you want to do it then we can figure it out. This is the first time that I'm doing a film, which is driven by a female character so I want to be more involved in this film. I just acted on my instinct. That's how I've always lived my life. My brother, Karnesh, and I will be looking after our company, Clean Slate Films. NH 10 will be our first venture. We start shooting in January.

Ques: How did you know you were ready to take such a huge step?
