Anushka Sharma channels human side: I don’t think I have friends in the industry
Anuskha Sharma is the new power girl in Bollywood who is going beyond simply being a pretty actress. The talent powerhouse however has done the unthinkable in Bollywood by saying she has no friends in the industry. While it is not known what prompted the actor to make this comment, she did shed a little light on why we don’t get to see glimpses of her at B-town parties.
"I don’t think I have friends in the industry; rather, I don’t have too many friends in the industry. Of course, I am friendly with them. I appreciate and respect them; they’re fun to be with. But, in general, I’m an emotionally independent person. I’ve never been someone who shares too much about my emotional state with everybody. So I’m not someone who has too many friends. The friends I have are mostly all around the world. So I meet them when I can," Anushka told Hindustan Times.
You may imagine Anushka trying to balancing her career with a boyfriend may be the reason why she does not find time to socialize, but that does not seem to be the case. Anushka deliberately avoids the parties with loud music unless necessary.
"I’m not very social by nature; I don’t have the time to. I’d rather use that time to relax and prepare for my work. I can’t have futile conversations. After I come back from a party, I feel drained emotionally and intellectually that I actually have to do something to feel better — so I watch TV or read something. At parties, the music is so loud. You can’t really have conversations with people. And I don’t like small talk because I feel it has no value. Sometimes you have to do it, but I don’t enjoy it."Anuskha seems to channel the introvert in all of us while breaking the stereotype of Bollywood actresses being social butterflies.
