Well, all out there who were waiting to hear a sound byte from Anushka Sharma, the leading lady of RAB NE BANA DI JODI, would be seeing an end to their long wait. Though the young girl from Bangalore hasn't spoken a single word about the film, especially in the last few weeks of the film's promotion, she would be revealed to the audience on screen as well as off screen.
"Yes, Anushka would soon be heard talking about the film", says Monica Bhattacharya, spokesperson of Yash Raj Films that has been quite careful in devising their marketing strategy of the film.
"There was no point for her to be interviewed before the release of the film", adds Monica, "RAB NE BANA DI JODI is her first film and she doesn't come with any prior acting experience. So this cuts down on any questions that one could have asked her about her previous films. Also, she hasn't signed anything new so there was nothing to talk about future as well. This means that only questions she may been exposed to would the ones centered on RAB NE..."
So what was wrong with that? This would have only helped the film's promotion, right?
"Nothing wrong with that but then how many times she could have possibly answered to the question 'How was it working with Shah Rukh Khan?' Would you expect her to say that 'Oh yes, it was horrible'", she quips, "It would only have become too predictable. Also, we rather preferred that she is completely unexposed before audience sees her on the big screen. She is quite a talent and we want people to see her work first and then discuss relevant stuff with her."
