Anushka Sharma has come a long way since her debut with Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Today, she’s one of the most bankable stars we have in the industry and is also a successful producer. Her first production venture NH10 did really well and it’s heartening to see the kind of content her team and her are doling out. With a bunch of releases over the last two years, it has been a busy time for Anushka, who is known to be a very private person.
We’re sure she has her set of close friends but they’re not all from the industry. In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Sharma spoke about her friendships.
I don’t think I have friends in the industry; rather, I don’t have too many friends in the industry. Of course, I am friendly with them. I appreciate and respect them; they’re fun to be with. But, in general, I’m an emotionally independent person. I’ve never been someone who shares too much about my emotional state with everybody. So I’m not someone who has too many friends. The friends I have are mostly all around the world. So I meet them when I can.
I’m not very social by nature; I don’t have the time to. I’d rather use that time to relax and prepare for my work. I can’t have futile conversations. After I come back from a party, I feel drained emotionally and intellectually that I actually have to do something to feel better — so I watch TV or read something. At parties, the music is so loud. You can’t really have conversations with people. And I don’t like small talk because I feel it has no value. Sometimes you have to do it, but I don’t enjoy it.
I feel you, Anushka. I feel you.
