Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli left all their fans surprised when the news came that they both have tied the knot in a hush-hush ceremony in Italy’s Tuscany back in 2017. Anushka was only 29 then, an age when most actresses are at the peak of their careers and marriage isn’t a thought in their minds.
In a sitting with Filmfare, this ‘Zero’ actress revealed the reason why she decided to settle and didn’t wait for some more years.
These were her words,
“Our audience is way more evolved than our industry is. Audiences are just interested in seeing actors on screen. They don’t care about your personal lives, whether you’re married or whether you’re a mother. We need to get out of this headspace.”
In other words, in the finals, your work talks and not your credentials.
She further added,
“I got married at 29, supposedly young for an actress. But I did it because I was in love. And I am in love. Marriage was a natural progression. “
Definitely, love makes you do things that are unimaginable. Taj Mahal is an example.
“I’ve always stood for women being treated equally. So, I wouldn’t want to experience the most beautiful moment of my life with fear in mind. If a man doesn’t think twice before getting married and continues to work, then why should a woman think about it? I’m happy that more actresses have got married. People in love are going out there and expressing it. It’s so beautiful to see happy couples together.”
As work couldn’t be left out during public discussions, so Anushka was asked about Zero’s box-office nose dive. To which she replied,
“Treat success and failure as imposters because they’re both not real. I read this at the Wimbledon when I was there for a game. They’re truly transitory. While success does bring a sense of relief, you learn and grow the most with failure. You can tell a lot about a person by the way they behave after achieving success. Similarly, you can tell a lot about a person’s strength from how they behave after failure. Like how quickly they get back on their feet, whether failure turns them humane and humble or they become unpleasant.”
