NEW DELHI: Bollywood beauty Anushka Sharma has already worked with superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan and now, will soon be seen sharing screen space with Salman Khan in the upcoming Sultan. For Sharma, working with Bollywood’s three legendary Khans has been “unique and fun” as well as a learning experience.
When asked if there is a sense of accomplishment after working with all three of them, Anushka said, “The Khans all are unique and fun to work with. You get to learn so much from them. I am lucky that I got a chance to work with all three of the Khans”
Sharma first walked into Bollywood with the Shah Rukh-starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and went on to work in films like Badmaash Company, Band Baaja Baaraat and Patiala House. She shared screen space with Shah Rukh once again in 2012’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The actor also worked with Aamir in the smash hit PK.
A celebrity’s life is constantly under public scrutiny and Sharma’s is no different. Like almost all of her contemporaries, she has also had her share of gossip, be it link-up rumours, speculations around marriage or her recent break up from Indian cricketer Virat Kohli. When asked how she deals with people looking for some ‘chatpatta’ gossip in her life, Sharma — who is the ambassador for a lemon-flavoured soft drink — had the perfect response. “Having been in the profession for a long time, I’ve learnt to take it all a little nimbu maar ke.”
As the face of the beverage brand, Sharma brings a peppy vibe to the new advertisement, directed by film-maker Vikas Bahl. According to her, “the peppy soundtrack by Sneha Khanwalkar adds to the entire vibe of the film. And, it’s always fun to shoot with Vikas (Bahl).” With summer temperatures already soaring, Sharma went on to say she has “always loved refreshing drinks which have a burst of flavour.”
