In a short span of four years, Anushka has carved a niche for herself in Bollywood, but entering the glamour business was not planned. “It wasn’t planned as I came from Bangalore. We don’t have the influence of films. I didn’t grow up watching films, so it wasn’t a decision to be an actor. But God had something different planned for me,” she said. If recent media reports were anything to go by, Anushka was in the shortlist for Hollywood filmmaker Steven Speilberg’s upcoming project. But she refused to comment on it.
Lastly, she said that she considers herself lucky to work with great directors so early in her career. “I am having a lovely time shooting Peekay with Raju Hirani. I must be doing something right to get such good directors so early in my career.”
