I am not trying to sell any image: Anushka Sharma

"I do a film when I like a character or a script. As an actor I would not confine myself to limited roles and become a monopolist. I am not trying to sell any image," Anushka told PTI.

"I want to do roles which I and other girls can relate to," said Anuoshka, who was in Delhi with her co-star Ranveer and film director Maneesh Sharma to promote the upcoming Yash Raj film 'Band Baaja Baarat'.

The model-turned actress tunneled into Bollywood through Yash Raj films and since then destiny has been favouring her.

With all her three films being produced and directed under the banner, ask the pretty damsel where she stands minus Yash Raj and she quips in, "Well I am a very honest actor. I do roles because they excite me. I don't make a biased judgement based on a banner.
Before signing 'Baand Baaja Baarat', I ventured to act in the film 'Patiala House'outside Yash Raj banner."

From sharing screen space with Bollywood king Shah Rukh Khan in her very first debut to romancing chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor, Anushka will be seen opposite newcomer Ranveer in her upcoming romantic comedy slated for a December 10 release.

However, the 22-year-old actress says she is in no hurry to rate herself. "I am not a brand that I should rate myself. In fact I hate to rate myself even if I have done quite a number of films. I am an actress and I want to do good work," said Anuoshka.

From spending 8 years on the ramp to foraying into Bollywood, Anushka said she was never sold on glamour stories."From walking the ramp to acting in films life has been a roller coaster ride but honestly speaking frills of glamour industry do not excite me at all," said the actress.
