Anushka Sharma is a name to reckon with in the current day Bollywood. This year, she has tasted immense success with Sultan, in which she held her own despite Salman Khan being in it; and in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, she was loved by all for her role of Alizeh opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
As far as her on and off-screen equation with actors Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh is concerned, Anushka is known to bully both these actors. Speaking at the Agenda Aaj Tak 2016, Anushka cleared the air. When session moderator Sushant Mehta asked her to throw light on her pulling-each-other’s-legs relation with Ranbir and Ranveer, Anushka said, “I friendzone men very quickly. This is a speciality of mine. I quickly draw a line, when it comes to men, and tell that that ‘you’re my friend’.”
I think my friendship with them is really good… more so with Ranbir Kapoor, because we have recently worked together (for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil) and we have a great understanding. Also, when you spend your sad times together, you come closer. We have done Bombay Velvet together, which was a colossal flop. That drew us closer,” said Anushka.
“There is this mutual respect we have for each other. I guess the new-age actors these days… we are trying to do something different. I don’t want to sound pompous by saying that we are revolutionising everything, but we are just trying our bit. When you see that actors of your age too are doing something like that, there’s a sense of respect that comes automatically. If I didn’t respect them, I wouldn’t have been able to share such a casual, playful relation with them,” the Sultan star added.
On the work front, Anushka will soon be seen on the silver screen alongside Shah Rukh Khan in Imtiaz Ali’s next film and her home production Phillauri.
