Anushka, who debuted in the industry 10 years ago, has worked with superstars like Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir. However, the actress says she doesn't feel she will be able to fulfill that tag, if received. "During Amitji and Shah Rukh's times, the meaning of stardom was different. Today it has changed. Still if it is there, then I feel as an actor you should accept everything that the audience gives you. It is love that you are receiving from the audience, it's a kind of acceptance that you are getting. I don't need any such kind of tag because I don't believe I am capable of being able to fulfill that tag," Anushka told IANS.
Of her career in films so far, Anushka said, "I feel you get some kind of diversity in your career by doing different films. That can only happen if you are working with different directors. I have had the fortune of working with big directors which every actor would have dreamt of. I have worked with names like Yash Chopra, Aditya Chopra, Rajkumar Hirani, Karan Johar and Vishal Bhardwaj. Only a director can add diversity to an actor's filmography."
Anushka Shama was last seen in Jab Harry Met Sejal, opposite Shah Rukh Khan. She is currently filming Pari and also has Sanjay Dutt biopic in the pipeline. Anushka turned producer with NH 10. This year's Phillauri, was also produced by him.
