Anushka Sharma is mixing it up all. While she started off with much senior Shah Rukh Khan in her debut film RAB NE BANA DI JODI, she followed it up with a younger Shahid Kapoor very recently in BADMAASH COMPANY. Before the year comes to close, she would also be seen with Akshay Kumar in PATIALA HOUSE. With seniors like Shah Rukh and Akshay around, has she gained any acting tips from them?
"No, they don't tutor me but one has to make your own effort to learn. I am observant of people and catch a lot of things during my interaction with them", comes an honest response from Anushka.
Elaborating on the learning process, Anushka says, "These are actors who have been around for two decades and come with great amount of technical knowledge. I am confident about my act but when it comes to technical aspect of acting, there are quite a few things to which I am yet to be exposed. You aspire to get much more familiar on these lines as well when you work with these actors."
Meanwhile, both Shah Rukh and Akshay appear to be pretty no-nonsense in their work and aren't expected to get into any idle conversations. How has she been able to strike a balance on and off the sets?
"I share a great relationship with both Shah Rukh and Akshay. I have spent a lot of time with them on the sets. There is a great amount of respect that does come in", she says, "Though many have asked me about the impact that our age difference may have made; I have actually never felt so."
