Fresh from the success of her recent blockbuster alongside Aamir Khan, actor Anushka Sharma says that she often had an "out-of- body-experience" working with the 49-year-old Bollywood star. "I would be sitting on the sets and Aamir would be around somewhere, and I’d probably be thinking something in my own space ... and suddenly I would look at him and it would just hit me — it’s Aamir Khan, he was in Pehla Nasha, he was in Lagaan!" says the 26-year-old army kid, adding that coming from a completely non-filmy ­background, it’s like a surreal experience for her to be ­working and hobnobbing with industry biggies.
"I’ve been here for six years but when you are not from the industry, and when you are suddenly working here, there are times when you feel like you’re having an out-of body-experience," says the Bangalore-bred girl.
"I’d ­suddenly look at Aamir and I’m like, shucks! I would have never thought 10 years ago that I would be here in my life! Or I see Mr Bachchan (actor Amitabh Bachchan) and I’m like, I would have never thought I would be going to his house for a Diwali party! I never thought that because I don’t come from ‘there’," adds the actor, who is currently spending time with her boyfriend, cricketer Virat Kohli, in Melbourne.
