Anushka Sharma’s last film Zero bombed at the box office in 2018, though her performance as Aafia Yusufzai Bhinder, a scientist with cerebral palsy, was lauded by critics as well as the audience. The actress has been missing from the big screen since then.
As Anushka has not signed any films after the 2018 release, there was speculation that she is planning to quit her acting career.
However, the 31-year-old actress has a perfect reply to all the rumors that stemmed from her being away from the limelight.
In an interview, Anushka Sharma said, “I think I have reached that position and security as an actor in my career, where I don’t need to do things or sign films just because I have to fill up time.”
Anushka, who made her Bollywood debut with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi in 2008, added, “In the past three years, I have been working in a fashion which was very hectic, and have done roles which were extremely demanding. In one calendar year, to do a film like Pari, Sui Dhaaga and Zero, it’s not easy and takes a toll on you. All are different, and required a lot of prep.”
The Zero actress had ventured into production in 2014 and co-produced her own film NH10 with Phantom Films, the next year.
Starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, Zero was directed by Aanand L Rai.
The film released in December 2018.
