When an old wish of Anushka’s mother was fulfilled, in an unbelievable turn of events
There’s no doubt that actress Anushka Sharma had a dream debut when she was cast opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan in her first film ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’. Following this, it was her third release ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ (2010) that proved to be a turning point in her career. And since then there has been no looking back for this gorgeous powerhouse performer. Time and again, she has proved her mettle as an actor, and even as a producer with films like ‘NH10’. Throughout this nine year long journey, Anushka’s family has indeed been her constant motivation and support that have always kept her going ahead.
Recently, we stumbled upon an old interview of Anushka Sharma where the actress revealed an interesting incident. Anushka revealed when she got to know that her mother Ashima Sharma always wanted her to be an actress.
It was during Anushka’s conversation on show ‘India’s Most Desirable’ when after listening to her mother Ashima Sharma’s message that had been recorded for her, the actress asked host Simi Garewal if she can say something about her mum. And then the actress went on to share this incident from the time when she had got the news of been signed on for ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’. (Also Read:Did you know?

She said, “There was this one time I was driving back from Yash Raj Studios and I got the news, Adi (Aditya Chopra) told me. And I was driving back and I couldn’t drive anymore because I was crying. I was so happy.. I was crying. So I stopped… I stopped the car and I pulled over and I called my mother and I told her that I got this film. And you know what my mum told me? There’s this turtle that used to be there in my living room. It was I think some Feng Shui thing. You just open the turtle and you put something like a wish inside that turtle and you shut it. And when your wish comes true you take it out. So she never never told me about this. But then she came down after she heard that I have got the film she opened that and showed it to me. She’d written it there ‘I hope my daughter stars in a Yash Raj film’. I swear… it’s unbelievable. So I think somewhere she always wanted me to be an actress.”
Upon hearing this, Simi reacted, “What are you saying?” Anushka added, “She said that she’d written this long ago, one thing for my brother and one thing for me.” Simi immediately asked if what was written for her brother came true as well, to which, Anushka nodded her head in agreement. And then when Simi asked Anushka if she (Simi) could write something in this magical, wish-fulfilling turtle, Anushka smiled and said, “You have to meet my mom right (smiles) she has some direct contact with God.”
Indeed, every parent wishes the best for his/her children and this incident is something that showcases this perfectly. Unbelievable, unforgettable, and totally lovable.

Ranbir Kapoor gave these many retakes for a scene in 'Saawariya'
Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the word perfection go hand in hand. The man is extremely particular when it comes to his film and takes care of even the minutest details in every scene. This is also the reason why most of his films are blockbusters. One of the actors who was privileged enough to work with this man is none other than Ranbir Kapoor. Mr Kapoor made his Bollywood debut with SLB’s directorial ‘Saawariya’. Though the movie did not work wonders at the box office, it did give a fair amount of recognition to Ranbir.
In a recent interaction with senior journalist Anupama Chopra, the actor recalled his ‘Saawariya’ days and spoke about the no. of retakes he had to deliver for one particular scene in the song ‘Jab Se Tere Naina.’ (Also Read:In Pics: Lovebirds Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt visit Sanjay Dutt’s residence)
The actor said,” I started with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and he doesn’t do anything less than 45 takes. So even if I had to turn my head, I probably had to give 50 takes. There was a shot in this so-called ‘towel song’ Jab Se Tere Naina, where I had to roll back on this chair and fall down and the towel had to fall in a certain way with my leg showing and there was one shot where I was lying down laughing and I had to get up and sing a song and he’s very particular about what beat you catch, he’s a very musical director – you fall on this beat, you lift your head here, you laugh here – everything is musical. I did 45 or 50 takes one day and my back really broke. The next morning when I came back, he said, ‘No, I’ve not got it’ and I had to do another 70 takes.”
Well, that is something huge but then if you wish to get appreciation from a man like Bhansali, you ought to put in that much amount of effort.
