I have been facing rejection from the age of 15 – Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma has efficiently proved her mettle as an actor in Bollywood. Starting her career opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan wasn’t an easy game for her but with her consistency and hard work, this girl has surely come a long way. Her list of great films at the box-office is loud enough to speak of her career graph.

In spite of that, the diva has had to deal with her fair share of struggles. Speaking to sources about the same, Anushka stated, “I have faced rejection from the age of 15. I don’t talk about it because there’s no need to do that.”

On being asked if she has been ill commented by any producer in the industry from her initial times until now. To this, Anushka said, “That hasn’t happened with me where someone is so vocal about what they feel. But when people go talking about things in a roundabout manner, I’m intelligent enough to understand what they are saying. They might just tell you, ‘The look wasn’t right’. That’s an indirect way of talking about the physical aspect of you. It will always be backed by some politically correct statements, which is fake and to me, that’s far more disrespectful. I feel it’s better if someone tells me to my face that you aren’t good-looking enough for the part. Samne hi bol do na! I prefer things to be said to me straight-up because otherwise, in that roundabout thing, you also are left confused.”

The Jab Harry Met Sejal actor went on to say, “However, to experience that at the tender age of 15, to be subjected and be judged purely on the basis of how you look, it can be very mentally damaging as well. It hits your self-esteem. I have dealt with it.”

“I feel it’s better if someone tells me to my face that you aren’t good-looking enough for the part. Samne hi bol do na! I prefer things to be said to me straight-up because otherwise, in that roundabout thing, you also are left confused,” she added.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Anushka is currently shooting for Prosit Roy’s Pari which will see her opposite Parambrata Chatterjee. Pari is slated to release on February 9, 2018.
