Anushka Sharma talks about her journey!

The 28-year-old star has been part of the industry for almost nine years and has worked in films like "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi", "Band Baaja Baraat", "Jab Tak Hai Jaan", "PK", "NH10", "Dil Dhadakne Do", "Sultan" and "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil".

During this period, she has also landed plum endorsement deals, the latest of which is her appointment as ambassador for the eyewear brand Polaroid. And she is also a film producer.

Talking about her journey, she said: "What I have realised so far is that one should just let one's work do all the talking. I stayed focused on choosing to work in roles that made a difference to a film, and in films that entertained and engaged viewers."

Giving the roles and scripts priority has paid off for her.

"I have worked with filmmakers who matter today and have won audience approval with my commercial successes. So, hard work above all else is the mantra to success. That's perhaps my biggest learning," Anushka said.

Be it as the vivacious Taani from "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi", fun-loving Shruti from "Band Baaja Baaraat" or the strong-headed Meera from her maiden production "NH10", Anushka has always shared equal ground with male actors.

Is that a conscious decision?

"I wanted to become an actor, to be part of films that will remain with an audience much after they have left the theatre, films that you remember with fondness. So, my decision to take up roles that have something to say and make a difference to how a film shapes up, emerges from that."

Anushka says she took her chances by focusing on strong, empowered and easy-to-relate-to roles.

"Since audiences today remember the characters that I have played, and the roles that I have done, it indicates that I chose the right direction. I hope to continue to be part of films where what I play matters," she said.

Anushka's next film is "Phillauri" under her home banner Clean Slate Films, and she features in it as a friendly ghost. Besides her, the film also stars Diljit Dosanjh, Suraj Sharma and Mehreen Pirzada and is slated to release on March 24.

"It's a funny and entertaining role with an element of intrigue also in play," Anushka said of the family entertainer.

Then there is filmmaker Imtiaz Ali's upcoming film with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

"At this stage, I can't say anything about Imtiaz Ali's film other than the fact that it's been absolutely fantastic collaborating with them. The film is visually and emotionally rich and engaging," she said.
