She had a dream debut in Bollywood opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi but her ride in showbiz has been bumpy with several highs and lows. Actress Anushka Sharma—who earlier this month completed eight years since she walked into the glitzy Hindi movie world—says having no strings attached to film families, worked in her favour.

The actress said she started her journey with a clean slate—without any “preconceived notions about the way you have to do things”. 

“Being an outsider turned out to be an advantage for me. I didn’t come with any preconceived notions about the way you have to do things, so I have just been exactly the way I am at home,” Anushka said.  Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi may have given her a good launchpad, but her sail into showbiz was not smooth. If we talk about her film career, then it seems to be a case of several hits and misses. 

She faced failure with films like Badmaash Company, Patiala House, Bombay Velvet, and Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola. 

She is currently riding high on back-to-back commercial success with Sultan and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
