‘Jagat Janani’ Anushka Sharma celebrated Diwali with her family. The actress who looked lovely in a black saree took to Twitter to convey her Diwali wishes. “Wishing you all a very very happy and prosperous Diwali . Sending loads of love to everyone,” she wrote.
We saw Anushka Sharma in the recently released PK poster. The actress who plays the character of ‘Jagat Janani’ has received much appreciation for her performance as far as the teaser goes.
Anushka is seen here with mom Ashima Sharma, dad Colonel Ajay Kumar Sharma and brother Karnesh Sharma, who works in the Merchant Navy.
It was thus a ‘homely’ and cozy Diwali for Anushka Sharma this year.
There have been rumours floating about Anushka Sharma dating the golden boy of Indian cricket Virat Kohli for a long time now, but both have been tight-lipped about it.
And now that Anushka is all out to promote her forthcoming release PK which has Aamir Khan in the lead, the actress obviously can’t avoid questions about their alleged romantic alliance. But Aamir, who is usually seen enjoying such queries and loves pulling the leg of his colleagues and co-stars with his witty punch lines, this time decided to protect his female lead when the question was thrown at her.
When the question hinting at Anushka’s love life was asked, and that whether her cricketer friend Virat would watch the film, the actress was at the loss of words and decided to dodge it. Though Aamir was initially seen pulling Anushka’s leg in his usual inimitable style saying that he too would like to know about it, later on he turned serious and requested the media person to refrain from asking such personal questions.
Instead, he joked with the media-person that he is interested to know many personal things about his life. Anushka must have been surely relieved and happy with the superstar’s gesture.

It’s finally here. The teaser of the highly anticipated Raju Hirani directorial – PK.
Starring Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Sanjay Dutt and Sushant Singh Rajput, the movie is slated for a December 19 release.
The storyline of the movie reads – A stranger in the city asks questions no one has asked before. Known only by his initials, P.K.’s innocent questions and childlike curiosity will take him on a journey of love, laughter and letting-go.
Did the teaser meet your expectations? Does the teaser give any hints on what the story is about? Does PK bear any resemblance to OMG(Oh My God)?
Anushka Sharma attended the closing ceremony of the 16th Mumbai Film Festival organized by Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI) today. The closing night sparkled in the presence of B-town celebrities and cine lovers.
Dressed in a cream Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla suit, Anushka looked lovely. On the work front, Anushka is gearing up for the release of her big movie – P.K this December.
She also wrapped up shooting for Zoya Akhtar’s “Dil Dhadakne Do” earlier this month.
Anushka Sharma has always tried to maintain a low profile. But going by the number of Bollywood films, including PK and Bombay Velvet, she has lined up for release in the next one year, it seems that aspect is set to change.
Anushka Sharma and Rajkumar Hirani
At the recently concluded Mumbai Film Festival (the week-long event that started on October 14), the actor spoke to us about the importance of staying in the news, maturing as an actor, and looking for new, challenging roles.
Why haven’t you signed any new films?
I’ve shot for four films in a year-and-a-half. I don’t believe in this whole ‘out of sight, out of mind’ business. I’m a very secure actor. I have a lot of confidence and I don’t have that ‘see me, see me’ attitude. Plus, I don’t want to stay in the news for the heck of it. When I did Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008), there was a lot of hype around me because I was a newcomer in an Aditya Chopra directorial venture that starred Shah Rukh Khan. The film did fairly well, but it didn’t make me an overnight star. Maneesh Sharma’s Band Baaja Baaraat (2010; in which she was seen opposite Ranveer Singh) changed things for me. I only want to do good films and be around for the right reasons.
Has nothing interesting come your way yet?
I have been reading a few scripts, but nothing has excited me. I already have four films lined up for release in the near future. I’m interested in certain kinds of films, but not a specific genre as such. I’m honestly looking for stability as an actor. I want to do films that will push me as an artiste and help my career.
Tell us more about your association with the Mumbai Film Festival.
I’m really glad to be associated with it. The kind of work that’s being done here is commendable. I personally feel that it’s important to have film festivals. We know what’s out there in the world because we travel… we have exposure. These festivals also serve a similar purpose by giving people access to cinema from around the world.
How was it working on a film as a producer for the first time?
Through the journey of my first production, I’ve become more mature as an actor, and as a person. As an actor, you don’t actually know what happens behind the scenes and what needs to be in place before the shooting starts. This time, I’ve been involved in the project from scratch and I’ve literally experienced the process of film-making. I’m aware of all the aspects of this film, right from the technicians who are involved and the locations we’ve shot at, to the budgets etc. I did all of this as a producer.
How did you balance between acting as well as producing?
Once I started work on the film as an actor, I didn’t get involved in the other aspects. My brother is a part of this too, and he has been taking the initiative from the beginning. Honestly, I was always a good actor for a producer, but after this, I think I’ve become better.
Your project with Anurag Kashyap is showing you in a very different look.
Bombay Velvet is a film that has been around for a while. Anurag has had the idea for about a decade now, and finally, we’re a part of it. I think shooting for the film has proven to be a turning point in my career. As an actor, I’ve started to see myself differently. In fact, my future decisions have become streamlined. The scale at which this film has been made – right from the sets (it’s a period film) to the costumes — it’s all top class.
You’ve got a release lined up for December, and your first look in it has taken aback many.
I’m feeling really good about it. People haven’t seen me in an extremely different look yet. I’m wearing a wig, but girls are convinced that I’ve actually cut my hair that short. So that’s really great. I’m glad it’s working well.
Even before her first production, ‘NH-10′, has hit theatres, Anushka Sharma is already rolling out her second home production. The Band Baaja Baaraat actress became one of the youngest female actor-turned-producers in the industry when she and her brother Karnesh Sharma set up ‘Clean Slate’ Films. The first project they backed being Navdeep Singh’s ‘NH-10′ at the peak of her acting career. This one too will be directed by Navdeep and is written by Sudip Sharma who also wrote their maiden productionNH10.
Anushka has always made bold choices to craft a unique space for herself through her films, brands and more. Setting up a film production house at such a young age only adds another dimension to her persona. Quotes Anushka, “I’ve always been a risk-taker, and setting up Clean Slate, allows me to push the envelope even more. To collaborate with young, fresh minds to mount projects & create cinema that truly excites me – both personally and as a viewer.”
Adds Karnesh Sharma, Joint-CEO, Clean Slate, “Our first production, NH-10 is taking shape so well, that it gave us a lot of confidence to put things into 5th gear under our banner. The intent is to use all the momentum that we’re picking up, to produce movies that we believe in and the audience loves while backing exciting, hot new talent. We will soon announce the main cast and crew of this film and before long we should hit the floors again.”
Anushka clearly is in the process of kickstarting what clearly looks like the most exciting phase of her career with a mouth-watering slate of films releasing back to back including Raju Hirani’s PK opposite Aamir Khan, Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet opposite Ranbir Kapoor, Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do opposite Ranveer Singh, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra besides her own production NH-10. Until she wipes the slate clean again!
I cannot wait for Anushka Sharma‘s promotional rounds for PK to start! If her clothes are going to be anything like this, I can just imagine all the fashion-porn the fashion team at the MissMaliniHQ will be drooling over. After her last outfit success, this look made for the perfect next step! Making the colour black extremely boho, Anushka wore a black embellished top with a pair of distressed shorts. She threw on a fringed loose jacket over the outfit and carried a black sling bag to match.
And she didn’t leave it incomplete either; in true boho form, she completed the look with some assorted beaded bracelets and layered necklaces. Blue nails and lust-worthy black sandals made the perfect additions to the ensemble.
While she wore it to a movie screening, how great would it be for Coachella!?
Psst… these are all the celebs we’d love to see at the music festival and Anushka would fit right in, don’t you think?
Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma was spotted wearing hot pants with a loose comfortable look on the screening of ‘Gone Girl’.
She not only stole the show by looking simply beautiful in black, but kept it stylish and cool by teaming up with a long cut-inspired jacket.
She accessorized the look by sporting chunky bracelets, bangles and a cool neckpiece. She looked completely bohemian and adorable in the look!
Anushka Sharma has been ‘trending’ these days, courtesy her much awaited film PK. Well, the following news will give the ‘trend-mills’ yet another reason to keep Anushka in the news. And the news is that, she has done the first item number of her career.
The film which will see Anushka Sharma’s gyrating and sizzling dance moves in the item number is Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do and the song is called ‘Swing‘. The song will also see the inclusion of the other stars from the film, viz., Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Anil Kapoor and Shefali Shah.
Besides the above mentioned names, Dil Dhadakne Do also features Ranveer Singh and is slated for release in June next year.
Bollywood might have a reputation for catfights, but Katrina Kaif believes otherwise. As a matter of fact, she insists that “people rarely interact with each other” in Bollywood and that “we (actors) hardly even see each other”.
“I probably interact with them once in a year. But when you do, you have a good time,” says Katrina, who adds that she has a “great time” whenever she meets Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
But the person who Katrina feels she has a “genuine connection” with is Anushka Sharma. They shared screen space in Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012). “I get along with her very well. But that’s also because I have done a film with her. So we have hung out. We have a lot of fun together. I am not in touch with her over the phone and we don’t chat all the time, but whenever we have spent time together, I have genuinely connected with her,” says Katrina.
Ask her if it gets difficult to maintain relationships with her contemporaries in the competitive place that Bollywood is, and she says, “See, even if you are competitive by nature, you tend to mature as a person over the years. Other things in life start becoming important. As an artiste, you will always remain passionate about your work, but other aspects of your life also become very important to you.” She adds, “Plus, I am too critical of myself to be nervous about what’s going on around me.”
