'I had not seen much of wrestling'

Anushka Sharma feels it will be interesting if films on the lines of ‘Charlie’s Angels’, with female actors doing action sequences, are made in Bollywood.

The ‘NH10’ star, who plays the role of a wrestler in her upcoming film ‘Sultan’, said to have an all-female cast in an action project would be interesting.

“Wrestling is not an action, it is a sport. I hope it happens (more action films are offered to heroines). I think it will be cool to have a film like ‘Charlie’s Angels’ or ‘Ghostbusters’ with an all-female cast. It will be fun and interesting,” Anushka said.

The 28-year-old actor said she was initially not sure if she could pull off the character of a wrestler.

“We have a certain perception about the way wrestlers look. I had not seen much of wrestling. I thought I was working with a disadvantage. I am playing a female wrestler and there is novelty in that,” she said.

“I researched and found out that there are different weight categories. I saw some international wrestlers who were tall and toned like me, so I was relieved,” she added.
“While I was training, I was finding it a little awkward as while wrestling, your head is under someone’s armpit or around the waist. I was like how can I do it. I was a bit
hesitant. When I saw myself, I realised I was not doing it properly. I think if you want to do something, then you should go all out completely and be fearless,” she said.
