The svelte Punjabi girl, Taani Sahni of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, has turned 29 today. And remaining true to her ambitious career oriented actor image, she has gifted herself a new Movie Pari, on her Birthday, which would be co-produced by her own Clean Slate Films.
The Ayodhya born peppy girl has indeed come a long way from the raw Shruti Kakkar of Band Baaja Baaraat to become a full fledged producer in less than a decade.
Anushka may have completed just 10 years in the Industry. But, she has had more than a humble pie of media attention and popularity. Indeed, what an envious career, she has carved !
Despite bagging Female Debutant Award for her first film, she was written off as a one time wonder in 2008, after a series of flops like Badmaash Company and Rickey Behel. But, she infused a new life in her career, by delivering stellar performance as an ambitious JanakPuri Wedding Planner in 2010. And, since then the girl has never looked back.
Though, the journey had been anything but easy. Her career was ridden with hits and flops in almost similar proportion. And, she has also had her fair share of controversies.
She and Ranveer Singh were made a celebrity couple, overnight by the frenzied media, post success of Band Baaja Baaraat and soon after rumors of their relationship going sour, made headlines.
She was ridiculed for making a public appearance on Karan Johar’s show with botched up lip surgery. And, each aspect of her relationship with Star Cricketer Virat Kohli remains under scanner. With fans of both, keeping a close watch on their antics, off and on field (err.. screen).
However, unruffled by media trials and critics’ harsh comments, the charming beauty, continued to deliver power packed performance in one movie after another. And, even launched a Production House called Clean Slate Films along with her brother Karnesh Sharma.
Brother Sister duo, produced the critically acclaimed NH10 in 2015. And, today, on her birthday, Anushka Sharma announced that Pari, the latest venture by Clean Slate Films, is expected to go on floor in June this year.
Pari is to be co produced with KriArj Entertainment, the one of Rustom fame. And, will be directed by Debutant Prosit Roy.
As in NH10, Anushka would be the female lead in Pari as well, while Bengali star Parambrata Chatterjee will be her Co Star.
Going by the standards of both Production Houses, trade pundits are expecting Pari to be a hatke film as well.
In the meanwhile, ravishing Anushka is smiling at her ingenious Birthday Gift. And, perhaps wishing for a runaway success, while cutting the cake today.
Way to go, atta girl !!
