Anushka Sharma turned 21 and we must say, she’s made some selections that were wonderful when it comes to movies. By working with all the Khans while she upped the ante, she also made some excellent films with actors her age. And in the midst of this, she’s also managed to construct her own production house Clean Slate Pictures, whose first production NH10 was a success.
When asked, what is Anushka’s standing at the box office, Rathi said, “Whether it comes to performance or standing at the box office or when it comes to having a loyal draw, while you can’t say she is right at the top, she is certainly among the top few and she has consistently been there since the start of her career with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. She had that consistency in performance, same for the box office draw as well. Be it the entertainer Rab Ne… Or the niche NH10, she has been one of the versatile actresses. Then she has a PK which is a mega blockbuster. She had a very good careergraph so far.”
When asked how does box office look in terms of her upcoming films, he said, “Considering what all she has in the future, be it the smaller rustic rom coms like Phillauri which she is also producing to big ticket mega mass entertainer like Sultan, it surely looks like a good time ahead for her.”
So where does she stand in the number game? “Certainly, among the top 4-5 without a doubt. You can’t really rank anyone as 1, 2 or 3. There are these 5 actresses at the top. So while you have a Deepika Padukone who has been consistently delivering 100-200 crore films, Anushka featured in a movie which did the highest business ever,” reminds Rathi.
So it seems her future is secure!
