Mumbai: Anushka Sharma has managed to stand out with her work as an actress and a producer in her nine-year long career and she says it is because she does not believe in following trends.
The actress made her acting debut with 2008 rom-com "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi", before featuring in hit movies like satirical comedy "PK", sports-drama "Sultan" and romantic drama "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil".
Anushka ventured into production with 2015 thriller "NH-10" and is now gearing up for her banner's (Clean Slate Films) next project "Phillauri".
"I don't let myself be influenced by what others might think. I don't follow trends or what is in (and what is not), when it comes to picking a film or producing one I follow my instincts and continue to do what I feel is right for me," Anushka told PTI.
"I follow my heart and focus on being part of a good story. I believe that's why turning producer has worked out for me," she says.
"Phillauri" stars Diljit Dosanjh and Suraj Sharma alongside Anushka.
There have been reports that "NH10" fame director Navdeep Singh has roped in Diljit and Arjun Kapoor for his next film "Kaneda" to be produced by Anushka's production house Clean Slate Films.
Without giving much information on the same, Anushka, 28, says, it is too early to talk about "Kaneda".
Meanwhile on the occasion of Women's Day, Polaroid Eyewear announced Anushka as its ambassador for 2017 campaign and the actress is pleased to be associated with the brand.
"I have a personal sense of style which is comfortable and chic and I feel the philosophy of the brand is similar. As the campaign launches on Women's Day, I salute the power of women across the globe," she says.
