Anushka Sharma is the new blue eyed girl of Yash Raj Films. Even before the release of her fourth movie ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’ with YRF, the actress is gearing up for her fifth film with the production house.

The yet to be names movie features Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in another leading roles and is being directed by none other than Yash Chopra seven years after Veer Zaara.

Many actresses dream to work with Yash Chopra and Anushka Sharma says that her getting to work under Yash Chopra is like a dream come true.

“Just being on the set with Yashji is a career high,” says the actress to a daily.

The actress recollects the time when she was working in her debut movie ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ under the direction of Aditya Chopra and Yash Chopra would come to see his son at work.

“The roles will be reversed this time, with producer Adi watching director Yashji. I loved his Silsila (’81), Chandni (’89) and Veer Zaara. Since I come from an army background I could relate to the ‘separation’,” she says.

The actress is looking forward to work with Shah Rukh Khan again after her debut movie.

“Having him around will make my life easier because there’s a certain comfort level. Also, Shah Rukh makes a girl feel like a woman, he’s so courteous and respectful,” says Anushka Sharma.

The actress also dismissed the rumors of a tiff between her and Katrina Kaif. She said she had nothing but respect for Katrina Kaif and she was her senior.

“Having him around will make my life easier because there’s a certain comfort level. Also, Shah Rukh makes a girl feel like a woman, he’s so courteous and respectful,” she says.

She also said that she respects Katrina for making it big inIndia.

“That’s amazing, it’s like me making it big inThailand! I’ve a lot to learn from her,” she adds,

When asked if she was scared that she would have to play a role of damsel in distress, which Yash Chopra is known to make out of his heroines, she says, “None of these characters is what you’d call an ‘abla naari’ (damsel in distress) who’s around to up the decorative value but new-age women. It’s the same in Yashji’s film, no one will feel cheated.”
