Anushka Sharma : No catfight with Deepika Padukone
The ad world is becoming more and more lucrative for actors and actresses trying to make money away from the box office. And with it comes several rumours about actors/actresses trying to outdo each other.
On a similar note, there was some gossip doing the rounds that Anushka Sharma had slashed her endorsement fee in order to snatch a deal away from Deepika Padukone.
However, the actress is furious that someone should try to malign her name and states that her “army background” would never allow her to stoop low.
Anushka Sharma said, “There is absolutely no catfight. People just try and drag you into issues. It’s not my problem that people try to pick actresses at random and create wars between them. I have nothing against anybody.”
The actress said that she is “too dignified” about her professional work, and added, “It shows poorly on my upbringing. I don’t fight with other girls over things and I don’t need to do that either. I remain dignified about the way I carry myself.”
She also feels that she has sufficient endorsement deals in her kitty right now and that she does not need to slash her fee to steal someone else’s ad.
“I find it very cheap to be saying I have X number of ads. I don’t need to slash my price. Period,” she said.
Deepika Padukone (born 5 January 1986) is an Indian actress and producer who works in Hindi films. One of the highest-paid actresses in India, her accolades include three Filmfare Awards. She features in listings of the nation’s most popular personalities, and Time named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2018.
Padukone, the daughter of the badminton player Prakash Padukone, was born in Copenhagen and raised in Bangalore. As a teenager, she played badminton in national level championships but left her career in the sport to become a fashion model. She soon received offers for film roles and made her acting debut in 2006 as the title character of the Kannada film Aishwarya. Padukone then played a dual role opposite Shah Rukh Khan in her first Bollywood release, the romance Om Shanti Om (2007), which won her the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. Padukone received praise for her starring role in the romance Love Aaj Kal (2009), but this was followed by a brief setback.
The romantic comedy Cocktail (2012) marked a turning point in her career, and she gained further success with starring roles in the romantic comedies Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Chennai Express (both 2013), the heist comedy Happy New Year (2014), Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period dramas Bajirao Mastani (2015) and Padmaavat (2018), and the Hollywood action film XXX: Return of Xander Cage (2017). She also received critical acclaim for playing a character based on Juliet in Bhansali’s tragic romance Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (2013) and a headstrong architect in the comedy-drama Piku (2015), winning two Filmfare Awards for Best Actress. She formed her own company Ka Productions in 2018, under which she produced Chhapaak (2020), in which she also starred as an acid attack survivor.
