Anushka Sharma has had an eventful 2018 with diverse films like Pari, Sanju and Sui Dhaaga. And now, the actress is set to end the year on a winning note with Shah Rukh Khan starrer Zero. As the release date of the Aanand L Rai directorial is nearing, speculations regarding Anushka’s next project have gone rife.
Several media reports had stated that Anushka will be starring opposite Salman Khan in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next directorial venture. The news of the big screen reunion of the Sultan actors had their fans jumping with joy, but, as it turns out, all of this was just a rumor.
Clearing the air about Anushka’s next, her spokesperson said in a statement, “Anushka Sharma would love to collaborate with Sanjay Leela Bhansali but as of now, there is no truth to the speculations claiming Anushka has been signed for his next. We request you to kindly refrain from reporting on the same.”
Notably, there is not any official confirmation about Salman being a part of Bhansali’s next either.
Anushka, who has completed 10 glorious years in Bollywood today, wants to take her time before finalizing her next film. In a recent interview, she said, “I felt I was working round the clock and my life is in the hands of everybody and whoever I had to give time to. I want to take time and pick films that I want to choose. I am in talks with few people.”
“I have reached a level of security and position where I can take the time to do a film that I want to do. I am not a newcomer who has to do films for the heck of it. Even when I was a newcomer I was not doing it. I am ok with that. I have gained that position,” she added.
Well, for now, she will be seen in Zero which is releasing on December 21.
