She is young, talented, and gorgeous. But besides all that, she’s also a great human being who respects people, and doesn’t believe in putting anyone down to make herself look good.
Unlike so many actors and actresses, especially the latest lads and ladies, Anushak Sharma never talks about which films she turns down! In fact, you would never even know the films she has been offered and refused to be a part of!
Why? Well, this is what she says “I don’t like to talk about the films I am not doing. Because when a filmmaker approaches you with a certain story, they do so in confidence. My job is to decide for myself whether I want to do the film or not. It is not my business to tell other people that I said no to it. I think it’s cheap to talk about the movies offered to you because you are belittling someone’s hard work. When someone says, ‘Oh I said no to the film’, it’s wrong! You are forming other people’s judgment about something. I might not do a film for various reasons… I might be doing something like that or maybe my dates were not working out… or some other reason. Maybe, creatively we didn’t agree on that film. But I can’t talk about that film and say I said no to it and deride that project because the project is good in itself. It’s not in my nature to behave like that. I only speak about the things that I am doing because that’s my business. I would like to respect people who offer me their movies. It could be a creative disagreement but talking about it is not any actor’s business.”
Now that’s bang on! Don’t you think?
This was a response to Karan Johar’s compliments for the actress! “I had gone to her for two films I had produced,” shared KJo. “After she said no to me for two movies, she said, “Ab toh tum kabhi nahi aaoge” But I still went to her for a film I am directing. First film she had said no to was 2 States. She didn’t want to do it, but what I respect about Anushka is that she never talks about films she doesn’t do and I really respect that about her. And I went back to her because I love her and I love the fact that she is so clear about what she wants. Her decisions are not coming from a stupid shallow place, it’s coming — most actors, let me tell you, operate from a clever place — from a career space and I respect that.”
The industry notices such things, and eventually having this kick-ass attitude is what really brings you success, and love.
