In a career spanning less than a decade in Bollywood, known to be a tough space for outsiders, Anushka Sharma has carved a niche by slipping into a variety of roles with ease. The actress-producer says, as compared to earlier times, stardom is more accessible today.
Anushka doesn’t wish to restrict herself as an actress and would love to portray a new role with every film. She considers herself incapable of getting a tag like her co-stars and Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan.
“It’s not common to give somebody a tag like ‘King of Romance’ (Shah Rukh) now. It’s a special thing. I don’t think that something like this… like we gave Mr Bachchan ‘The Angry Young Man’ tag, and we call Shah Rukh as ‘King of Romance’… can happen now.
“I feel it will not happen any more because the meaning of stardom has changed completely. It is not what it used to be earlier. Stardom is more accessible today,” Anushka told IANS in an interview
