Anushka Sharma made waves as the latest Yash Chopra discovery achieving stardom after successful films like Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Badmaash Company. Now Anushka is ready with her third film in her contract with YRF called Band Baaja Baarat releasing in December. Sandeep Hattangadi spoke to Anushka at the music launch of the film in a suburban mall.
What is Band Baaja Baraat all about?
The film is essentially about the youth and their struggle to achieve success in tough competitive circumstances. The story is about two 21 year old Delhi based graduates who come together and form a wedding planning company and make a success out of it. These two characters are played by me and Ranveer Singh who debuts with this film.
How was it like shooting for the film?
We had an absolute blast since the unit and the director Manish are young. We gorged on Delhi food which is great and made visits to parts of the city.
How was debutant Ranveer Singh to work with?
Ranveer is a nice sweet boy, very chilled out and down to earth. I enjoyed shooting for the film with him. He is a talented actor.
Speaking of weddings when are you planning to get married?
I have conducted so many weddings in the film that I probably even wouldn’t attend any weddings (laughs). And marriage is a long way to come.
Now that your contract with YRF is over, what are your plans?
It is true that my three films contract with YRF is over but I want to continue my association with YRF and also accept good roles and banners which come my way. I hope my forthcoming films are too successful as Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Badmaash Company.
Any final words you want to convey to your fans?
Yes. I would like to wish all my fans and their families a very Happy Deepawali.
