She’s been called as SRK’s blue-eyed girl… a dream debut waiting to happen! Anushka Sharma is a Bangalore-based model who has been chosen as the lead actress against King Khan in Aditya Chopra’s next. The movie Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi will mark the comeback of the younger Chopra after a gap of fourteen years!
“It was her beautiful expressive eyes which made me select her as my showstopper”
There is not much available on Anushka… I guess it will be, in the run-up to her much publicized movie! What we know is that she is only 19 years old… and SRK??
The girl is is studying for graduation in Economics in Bangalore.
Professionally, Anushka is a model and has walked the ramps for various leading Indian designers and has also been featured in hair products commercials of Silk & Shine, and not to forget the Fiat Palio and Whisper ads. She came to limelight when she was a show-stopper for Wendell Roderick’s collections at the Lakme Fashion Week, this year.
About modeling: “I can’t see myself doing anything else,” she was once quoted as saying.
Now… let’s admit, she’s not that gorgeous as Deepika, who made her own dream debut with SRK in OSO… but, she deeply embodies the spirit and confidence of making it big.
“We were looking first and foremost for someone who could truly embody the spirit of small town Punjab and we know we have found her in Anushka,” Yash Chopra says.
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has started shooting from May 16 and will hit theaters worldwide on Dec 12.
