After playing some strong female centric films Anushka Sharma stood her own in films with the Khan trio, worked in two-heroines project, and acted in and produced an action film. But she’s never been part of a chick flick.
Anushka says, “I would love to do a chick flick. I love exploring new things and genres so I am looking forward to doing one.” There was buzz about her being offered a role in Rhea Kapoor’s Veere Di Wedding. Anushka was reportedly approached for the role offered to Kareena Kapoor Khan, but Anushka has denied this. Anushka may or may not have been offered the role, but she isn’t opposed to the genre.
The actress Anushka Sharma reveals what has kept her away from the genre so far, “I have been wanting to do a chick flick but you have to find the correct writers for it. It cannot be the same old stereotypical story. It needs to have a new language or a new idea to tackle. There needs to be something relevant and interesting. The minute I find a good writer, I am totally on!”
Actress Anushka Sharma doesn’t subscribe to the theory that heroine-oriented films don’t perform well at the box-office. “Women are suc complicated, complex characters — not in a negative way — but there is much depth and layers to them. It will be interesting to show the interpersonal relationship between women without the presence of a man. It can make for amazing stories. Look at the films being made in the West. We have seen so many stories exploring women and their relationships with each other.”
Actress loves one chick flick, in particular. She says, “Bridesmaids is my favorite. It’s out-and-out funny, hilarious and unapolegetically entertaining.”
