Anushka will feature in a Korean language web show as well as a movie, she told Hindustan Times earlier this year. She announced a partnership with a creative agency recently. Anushka will also host a show, Not Just A Chat Show.

In an interview with News18, Anushka spoke about the Korean people, "They watch a lot of different kinds of content. They have watched some Hindi films, but they don’t know much about it. They don’t know about our culture that much, unfortunately, and that’s why when I was in Korea, every meeting I was going to, I was telling them about my culture. Our culture, industry, and our films. They don’t know a lot about it. But they know some people like Shah Rukh Khan. Who doesn’t know Shah Rukh Khan? We all love him."

She also added, "They know some of the older films. They’re really hyped about Indian food, which came as a surprise for me. And actually, some of the Korean recipes are inspired by Indian spices and our curries. So there is a connection between Korea and India, even though it’s very little right now. But I see it becoming stronger in the future since we love them so much. And they love guests. The way they treated me and welcomed me was so sweet and warm. I had a great time and I can’t wait to go back again."

Anushka is known for portraying the role of Meher in the fantasy show, Baalveer. She also played Manikarnika Rao (Rani Lakshmi Bai) in the historical drama television series Jhansi Ki Rani. Last year, she was one of the contestants in the reality show Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 11.
