“Everyone benefits from the insecurities of an actor.” – Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma is all geared up for her next release Jab Harry Met Sejal opposite Bollywood’s king of romance Shah Rukh Khan. The actress made her big Bollywood debut opposite King Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Ever since then Anushka has given some great films and made a mark for herself in the industry.


Further talking about if there’s any kind of pressure that Anushka feels since there are younger actresses who look up to her, she replied, “There is absolutely no pressure, but everyone feels insecure. This industry breathes on insecurity; everyone benefits from the insecurities of an actor. I understood a lot of things about this workspace at a very young age and that has helped me a lot. A lot of people will try and make you insecure and enjoy your state of self-doubt. Here, actors are constantly pitted against each other; someone writes about it, and the studios benefit. If you fall for it, you’ll ruin it for yourself. I am insecure too, but I don’t let my fears determine my course of action. I have never let that happen and I’ll ensure that it doesn’t happen in the future too. Fear will never get to decide my course of action and hence, my fate.”


When asked if she gets time to do other things than films or on keeping up with her social life, she told, “I do nothing other than my job. Blame it on my social awkwardness also, but I don’t really hang out with friends. I don’t know if it’s sad or funny, but I only have time for work, and whatever I’m left with is reserved for my loved ones. My work consumes me completely and at this point in my life, it shouldn’t be any other way. Ideally, I would like to have some time to prep for films, but I’m not complaining about it.”
