New Delhi: Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma is set for her Cannes debut where she will honour women in cinema along with Hollywood icon Kate Winslet. Anushka is also amongst the most popular actors of her generation who has three 300 crores plus films – ‘Sultan’, ‘PK’ and ‘Sanju’ – under her belt. Anushka Sharma personifies a self-made success story in the Indian film industry.
She has built her own legacy through her body of work as an actor, as an entrepreneur, as a film producer wanting to change the representation of women in society, and also as a human being who has worked for those in need through her non-profit that has tirelessly worked to aid and upskill people of India for over a decade.
She has built a prolific body of work as an actor and cultural icon with sheer merit, creative disruption and consistency. Anushka has carved her own path in the competitive world of cinema, letting her acclaimed work do the talking.
Anushka is one of the most successful actors of her time and also one of the most revered in India. She has delivered some of the biggest hits of Indian cinema like PK!, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Sultan, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Ae Dil Hain Mushkil and Band Baaja Baraat, among others.
As one of the youngest film producers of India (she produced the acclaimed NH10 at the age of 25), Anushka backed her passion for making clutter-breaking content and homegrown Indian stories in the forward-thinking choices that she made as a producer with Clean Slate Films. Be it the gritty ‘NH 10’ that shows a dark side of Indian reality or the unusual stories ‘Bulbbul’, ‘Pataal Lok’ and ‘Qala’, she has backed engrossing and critically applauded content that has diversified the Indian entertainment industry and also made its presence felt globally.
Anushka commands a community of 63.2 million followers on Instagram and a cumulative community of 103.6 million across all platforms (Instagram+Facebook+Twitter). Her next film is ‘Chakda Xpress’, which is inspired by the life and times of women cricket’s all-time greatest fast bowler Jhulan Goswami.
