In December 2014, Sharma auctioned the leather jacket she wore in Jab Tak Hai Jaan on eBay, with proceeds going to the redevelopment of the flood-ravaged states of Kashmir and Assam. Sharma had also fronted a campaign to collect donations for the victims of the April 2015 Nepal earthquake. She supports the annual Mumbai Film Festival, and donated money in its cause in 2015. Sharma has been vocal about the disparity in the pay that actresses command, in comparison with their male counterparts in the film industry.

In October 2017, Sharma launched her own clothing line, named Nush.
Anushka Sharma marriage
Being a popular celebrity makes it hard to have a personal life free from outside interference. Now it has come to light that this was one of the reasons that Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma got married in Italy.
Virat and Anushka tied the knot in a private ceremony in 2017 in Tuscany. When this was revealed, fans wondered why the couple did not want to get married in India closer to home.
The wedding was so covert that even their guests were not informed about the location until the last minute. The confidentiality of the wedding was approved of and supported by both Kohli and Sharma’s family. Kohli claimed that marrying in India with a huge number of guests was too much for them to handle. This is why their wedding in Tuscany was with 42 guests only.
The couple later held a reception for their wedding in Mumbai towards the end of December. The reception was attended by a number of familiar faces that included the Bachchan family, Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and many others. Now that’s one interesting fun way to plan a wedding.
