Walking the ramp for fashion designer Surily Goel at Blender's Pride Fashion Tour, Anushka couldn't stop gushing about Surily's collection.
"I love the fact that Surily knows a woman's body so well. A lot of people go wrong with drapes but she has done a fabulous job with her collection. She understands a woman's body and that reflects in her collection," says Anushka.

"When I met Shah Rukh on the sets of Rab ne… I immediately told him that he was my favourite."
Dare we mention Shahid Kapoor and she playfully retorts, "What about him? It was great working with him. He's close to my age and so obviously it was more comfortable working with him."
After Patiala House, the actress will be seen in Band Baja Baraat where she plays the role of a wedding planner from Delhi University.
