Anushka Sharma filmography
Her first acting role was in Aditya Chopra’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) opposite Shahrukh Khan. The film was a huge success and her performance was appreciated. Film critic Taran Adarsh said, “Anushka looks the character and surprises you with a confident performance. It’s no small achievement to share screen space with an actor of the caliber of SRK and Anushka manages it very well from start to end.” Her second film, Badmaash Company, also under Yash Raj Films, was released on May 7, 2010. She was praised for breaking out of the shell of the conservative and homely Taani to play the feisty and independent Bulbul, and her performance was applauded.
Experimenting with the premise and roles, she has churned out some versatile performances. She is also one of those rare actors who have maintained a balance between low budget content-driven films and big-budget Bollywood masala films. So, here are seven career-best roles of Anushka with which the actor won us over.

Anushka Sharma got every struggler’s dream launch when she made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Aditya Chopra’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Today, she is one of the most sought-after actors in Bollywood, with a production house of her own.
“I was on the fourth floor, in Aditya Chopra’s office. He just said, ‘Listen, I have a lot of belief in your talent. I think you are a very talented actress but I don’t think you are very good-looking. You’re not the most good-looking girl, so you have to make sure that you work really hard. You’re on for Taani (her character in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi),’” she said.
