It’s been more than a year since we saw Anushka Sharma on the big screen. The actor was last in Aanand L Rai’s Zero in 2018 alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif. However, the film failed to do a great job at the box office. Now, people have been waiting for Anushka to announce her new film. The actor featured on the cover of Grazia magazine’s February issue and has opened up about her personal life and choices in the interview.
Talking about why she chose to take a break from films, she told the magazine in an interview, ''I was on auto pilot, and it got exhausting. There was a period when I was shooting two films simultaneously. I made choices that weren’t necessarily healthy. I needed to try other things, things that didn’t fit into the schedule that I had found myself getting accustomed to for such a long time.''
Adding that she needed to slow down, she said further, “There’s never a good time to step away from creative opportunities, but I needed to grow and I needed to challenge myself in a different way to figure out, I don’t know, a purpose, and live a little outside of the movie sets and promotional tours, and dresses and heels, and have authentic exchanges with people. I also prioritised slowing down and working on building a life for myself. I worked in a different capacity – I tried to create some things, produce some things, build my clothing brand.”
The actor concluded by saying, "I’m a curious individual. I'm not eager for acquisition. I don't have a fantasy about arriving somewhere. I challenge myself to grow with the experiences I take on. I always want to do better."
Meanwhile, the actor has two productions in the pipeline. Her production company Clean Slate Films will release a film titled Bulbul on Netflix and a web series written by Sudip Sharma for Amazon.
