Anushka Sharma: It’s not easy to handle stardom like SRK and Salman, It’s a talent
Anushka Sharma is the luckiest girl in Bollywood, that she was starring opposite three Khans
These days, Anushka Sharma is the one of the most successful young stars of Bollywood, but the actress said, she cannot imagine herself handling the stardom the way Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan do.
She made her debut with Shah Rukh in 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi,' went on to star opposite Aamir Khan in 'PK' and Salman in last year's blockbuster 'Sultan'.
According to her, she has not achieved the superstardom yet, but whatever she has scares her. "I sometimes think about this (referring to stardom) and get scared. I haven't experienced superstardom like Salman, Shah Rukh or Aamir. But even this (my stardom) can give a false sense, forget about what they face. I won't be able to handle it.
On Salman and SRK’s praise, she added, “It's a talent how Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan handle stardom”.
"I recently worked with Shah Rukh and the dedication with which he works, the enthusiasm, the amount of respect he gives to the director despite coming a long way in life, is not easy." Anushka said.
Anushka may have had a great run at the box office but the actress does not take her success seriously.
"I am very sure that if I had become too aware of my stardom, it would've been a very difficult process for me. I am a simple person. I've never thought that I am special and have believed everyone is just doing their job," she said.
"I believe if I start taking myself too seriously that 'I am an actor', it will affect my creativity. Once ego enters your creativity, it destroys you.
Stardom gives you a false sense of self. These are transitory things, this will eventually go away," she added.
When I became an actor, everything came at me like a gush of wind.
Suddenly I was famous, people were recognising me. It was all too much for me to take. I didn't know what to make out of it...which direction I wanted to go," she said.
The actress has now ventured into production and her second film as a producer, 'Phillauri' released this Friday.
"The only good thing God blessed me with was I knew what I didn't want to do. I knew I don't want to do certain kind of films, roles or item songs. Not that it is bad but it wasn't creatively satisfying for me. It took me a while to feel like I am happy in this situation," She added.
