Actress Anushka Sharma is glad that her movie ‘Jab Tak Jaan’ was a huge hit and entered the elite 100 Crore club but fails to understand how his bench mark will affect her career.
“I don't really understand how much being a part of this 100 crore club genuinely helps me as an actress. I don't have experience to still ascertain how a 100 crore success could make any difference to my career,” said Anushka Sharma to PTI.
This was Anushka Sharma’s first movie to reach 100 Crores and the actress has now joined her contemporaries like Sonakshi Sinha and Asin, who have the highest number of century hits to their credit and seniors like Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif.
“I am happy that people have liked my film but the way I look at it, sometimes there are films that cater to certain segment of audience and may not always get those crores coming in. 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' has made money but I don't see any of that affecting me,” she added.
The actress is also happy that 2012 ended on a high for her.
“I am really happy that the year ended well for me. People liked me for my performance and to hear something like that is always nice. Honestly, being a part of Yashji's film was a huge honor,” she said.
Anushka Sharma is currently busy promoting her upcoming movie ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
The actress, who paired up with Ranveer Singh and Shah Rukh Khan twice, is excited about her fresh pairing with Imran Khan.
“This is our first film together and it would be special for everyone. Since we have not done a film together in the past, our pairing should be interesting. Our combination is striking with Pankaj Kapoor as the third main lead,” she said.
Talking about her character Bijlee the actress said, “I think Bijlee is not apologetic about anything. As a character she is someone who likes to shock people. She likes to get reactions out of people. Also, she is overtly practical about things in her life."
‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ is a drama comedy set in a rustic village of Haryana. The movie is about Harry Mandola (Pankaj Kapur), a wealthy industrialist who loves his drink, his daughter Bijlee (Anushka Sharma) and the unusual bond they both share with Harry’s man Friday, Matru (Imran Khan).
The movie also stars Arya Babbar, who plays Anushka Sharma’s finance Baadal, the son of a powerful politician Chaudhari Devi played by Shabana Azmi.
The movie is set to release on January 11, 2013.
