Anushka reveals everything about Deepika
As Anushka Sharma is growing to be a star with the passage of time, the number of controversies that hound her, too are increasing. But one very specific controversy has perturbed her to no ends.
This is regarding her comparison with her contemporary Deepika Padukone. She recently made it known that some in the industry have been trying to pull her down but she will not let herself be treated badly.
She flashed a little snooty behavior and announced “There is no comparison between Deepika and me. Nothing links us. We do different kind of films. In fact she has done more films. I've been choosy. I have not picked up just about any role that came my way.”
She even bravely answered why the blame of snatching brand endorsements from Deepika are not true. She said in her defense, “I don't need to do that. I have enough brands. And each one of them has renewed the contract, some of them for the third time. I don't think that's happening with other heroines. I must be doing something right.”
She is sure to have consolidated her position in this industry as she tells us, “What I offer, only I can. What others do, probably I cannot. I am working back to back with four top-notch directors.”
Anushka had been accused of slashing her price to crack endorsement deals to which she said, “Today I command a premium. I have earned it. And I don't need to slash my prices. The best brands and filmmakers work with me happily and pay what I demand. But these are things that you don't flaunt.” She even added, “Flashing yourself as an imaginary first choice when you're not even in the running is so tacky. There is no dignity in this and I don't need to resort to such tactics. The other day, someone said I wasn't Anurag Kashyap's first choice for Bombay Velvet and he had to clarify on Twitter. Why do such things in the first place?"
She even poked a dig at Deepika directly saying, “A friend of Deepika had called up to say that she is doing Yeh Jawaani Hai Diwani and not Anushka. My 'friends' don't call, do they? I am Kashyap's and Hirani's choice. She is Ayan's and whosoever's. I never pull anybody down. That makes me nice, right?"
She sealed the interview by leaving a message for her contemporaries, “Stop throwing garbage at me since I don't throw garbage at you. We call ourselves cool but we are actually not". She added, "I'm not saying I'm better or worse than X. I am in a damn good position myself. Nobody can take it away from me by deriding me".
Her answers to this controversy have certainly been bold and upfront but we only hope that this does not entangle her into another hullabaloo yet again.
