Actress Anushka Sharma turns 27 on 1 May. With "NH10," the model-turned-actress has now become a producer as well.
The "PK" actress has come a long way since she entered the film industry. She made her film debut with Shah Rukh Khan in Aditya Chopra's "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi".
Not many know that the hardworking actress did not have to struggle much to begin her modelling career. While shopping at a mall in Bangalore, well-known fashion designer Wendell Rodricks spotted her at a denim shop and she got her first break.
She had never planned to be a model or an actress and her initial choice of career was journalism.
However, destiny took her to the entertainment world and now Anushka is one of the leading actresses of Bollywood.
While exploring the fashion and cinema industry, the actress also had few love--hate stories.
Everybody knows about Anushka and Indian cricketer Virat Kohli's love story. Currently the two are dating each other and soon may tie the knot. Initially, the couple remained tight-lipped about the affair but has opened up about it in the recent times.
Though dating a sportsperson is quite cool, the actress also had pay for it. The diva was blamed for her beau's bad performance in the ICC Cricket World Cup's semi-final match against Australia.
However, Virat stood up for his lady love and made statements in her favour.
"If someone is saying bad things about my partner, obviously I will get annoyed. I will get angry because that's a very personal thing to me.You cannot sit quietly when such things are being said about your girlfriend or partner," said Virat.
"My relationship with Anushka has only become stronger because of that incident," he added.
"Not many people know Anushka is the major reason why I was able to play in that Test series the way I did."
Anushka and Ranveer Singh started dating each other after their first film together – "Band Baaja Baaraat." But, the two never admitted to their love affair in public. Apparently, things turned sour between them after a while and the couple parted ways.
Model Zoheb Yusuf
When Anushka Sharma was seeking a glamorous career, the actress was dating Zoheb Yusuf, a model from Bangalore. Apparently, Yusuf came with his ladylove to Mumbai for a career in Bollywood. But the duo broke up after a while.
