She is no longer the shy Anushka Sharma that one saw at her first press conference with Shah Rukh Khan. Today, she is more confident, open and glamourous.

Post Rab Ne Bana De Jodi, the actress has been trying to take in the success and all the things that come along with it. “Ever since the success of Rab Ne..., it has been a crazy and wonderful ride. I have achieved a whole new identity since then. I have started to introspect a lot more because as an actor, one needs to know oneself in order to enact a character,” adds Anushka, who was in the City for a store launch.

Having grown up and begun her modelling career in Bangalore, Anushka says that there is so much she loves about the City. “I know everything in Bangalore. I love the weather, the people and I have many friends here. Because of my career, I had to shift to Mumbai but every chance I get, I hop in to the City,” says she.

With a modelling background, she sure did get over her inhibition of facing the camera but she explains that acting is a tougher job. “Both the professions are very different. In modelling, you are selling a designer’s product, in acting, you are selling your director’s concept,” says Anushka while adding, “To me, modelling is very easy when compared to acting. I have always wanted to be a model but acting just happened. I still have so much to learn in the profession, after all I am the youngest actress in Bollywood.”

Currently, the actress is busy with an untitled movie, which also stars Shahid Kapur.

Though she explains that there is not much she can talk about, she promises that her audience can definitely see a different Anushka in the film. “Working with Shahid has been a lot of fun though we have shot only a couple of scenes. I really like the story since it allows me to showcase a different side,” says she.

Though she believes in taking one movie at a time, Anushka is sure that she will never do a multi-starrer, “I can’t see myself in a multi-starrer, I will always prefer the lead heroine’s role,” she says blankly.

She is also willing to do Kannada movies. Ask her to name any star she knows in Sandalwood and she says, in whispers, “Is there a star called Ramya?”
