“I am open to dancing around the trees” – Anushka
Her first film ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ was a blockbuster success while her second film ‘Badmaash Company’ is en route to be a hit as well. While Anushka can certainly be seen smiling, one wonders whether she is missing being a part of song and dance routine? After all looking at each of her two films so far, it seems like she has been pretty much deprived of that.
“See, different people connect to different things. Both my films have been quite different so far when compared to regular romantic tales that hit the screens every second week. That’s the beauty of my films so far because they have had a bit of everything. This allowed me to touch upon various elements”, says Anushka, “Even though ‘Badmaash Company’ was about a journey, friends, dreams, ambitions, bonds and scams, there was also romance which was beautifully woven into the narrative.
Still, doesn’t she feel like stepping into the shoes of a quintessential Bollywood heroine?
“Of course I am a Hindi film heroine in ‘Badmaash Company’; who else was the leading lady there”, laughs Anushka, “I am not looking at meaningless roles where all I have to do is look good, wear great costumes and do my hair. No, I am not saying there is anything wrong in it. After all a lot of people like it that way. Still, what matters to me is the kind of films that I am doing.”
“Tomorrow, if I get a fantastic script then I am game when it comes to dancing around the trees as well”, she comes up with a follow up statement, “I am quite open to that as long as it excites me enough. I am sure though that I would invest my energy, mind and soul only into something that totally convinces me. Else, I will let that pass.”
Well, looking at the kind of choices that Anushka has made so far, one can be rest assured that the pretty girl certainly knows where to put her money.
