Anushka Sharma starred in four films in 2018 namely ‘Pari’, ‘Sanju’, ‘Sui Dhaaga: Made in India’ and ‘Zero’. Other than ‘Sanju’, in which she only had a special role, the other three movies failed to create any impact at the box-office. However, the actress has no films coming out in 2019.
In a recent interview, the actress said that though she hasn’t signed any new movies as an actor, she has a lot of projects in her kitty as a producer.
Talking about taking a backseat from acting in 2019, Anushka stated to Hindustan Times, "In the past three years, I have been working in a fashion which was very hectic, and have done roles which were extremely demanding. In one calendar year to do a film like Pari, Sui Dhaaga and Zero, it’s not easy and takes a toll on you. All are different and required a lot of prep. You feel you want to sit back and take a call. I think I have reached that position and security as an actor in my career, where I don’t need to do things or sign films just because I have to fill up time."
Anushka spoke about how as a producer her hands are full and she is excited for the same.
"Being a producer, I anyway have my hands full, we are doing some interesting work. We have been producing shows for streaming platforms, a film too. Those are things that also require my time, and in my case, it’s very different. I am an actor at the same time. There are things that I do behind the scenes, which obviously people are not going to be privy to," she said.
Anushka Sharma is currently busy with her cricketer husband Virat Kohli before he flies out to England for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
