Anushka Sharma is only 24 and the girl’s on a roll. Having made her debut with a YRF movie- she still didn’t consider herself a privileged newcomer till she bagged one of the leads in the Yash Chopra-directed Jab Tak Hai Jaan, opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
Says the youngster, “I would have had an incomplete career if I did not have a film by Yash Chopra because everyone called me an Yash Chopra heroine as I was launched by Yash Raj Films. I was doing lot of YRF films but I was not actually a Yash Chopra heroine till I did this film.” Anushka recounts her experience of working with the director. She says, “He is very focused and knows exactly what he wants from you. He is a magician when it comes to drama and emotions. Having said that, I don't know anyone in the world who is more childlike. He is always in a good mood and laughing. Kashmir was a difficult schedule but he never showed any fatigue. His passion for work at this age is inspirational.”
While she seems to have had a great experience in the shoot- we ask, yet again, who will wear the white saree- a signature Yash Chopra film lady outfit. Anushka, who plays a Discovery Channel employee in the movie does reveal that it won’t be hers to don. “I know that there is something like an image about Yashji's heroines but maybe I am the new age Yash Chopra heroine,” she elaborates, “There is going to be a white chiffon sari but I am the white ganji girl and that's what I am going to be wearing.”
So that probably means it will be Katrina Kaif who we’ll see in the chiffon! But lets keep some room for twists, right?
