Anushka Sharma completes nine years in Bollywood. Here’s why she is still Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’s Taani Partner for us

Taking a throwback at Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, I don’t remember anyone had doubts about Anushka playing Taani Sahni. She even took time off, from the production work of Pari and before her next film Sui Dhaaga went on floors, for her nuptial. Anushka might have later been a part of some of the biggest hits of recent times like Band Baaja Baaraat, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, PK, NH10, Dil Dhadakne Do, Sultan and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, but the Taani in her has stayed. She doesn’t even mind flaunting her chooda after the wedding. She has set enough goals for everyone, her contemporaries included! With the film’s box office success, Anushka silenced anyone who thought whether or not she can pull off such a role. Blame it on her freshness or being absolutely natural, Anushka won hearts from the very go. She emoted as much as she made everyone dance too. Donning a completely traditional avatar, that of a Punjabi kudi clad in phulkaris and patialas, Anushka dreams of winning a dance competition while also being a sincere housewife who had to marry a middle-aged man to fulfill her dying father’s desire. No wonder, she did not mind getting married at 29, when she is at the peak of her career. Related News

Anushka prefers not to be a part of the race. From the makers to the audience, everyone had a conviction. She has loads to deliver after all. When other Bollywood celebs plan a New Year vacation and flood their social media handles with every little update from their getaways, Anushka plants trees and goes to pray with her beau in the hills of Uttrakhand. Just a day after Anushka Sharma got married to Virat Kohli, her debut film turned nine. She continues to be as charming, honest and flamboyant. If you and me were cribbing over Virushka keeping us hanging about ‘will-they-won’t-they’, the moment the newlyweds officially broke the news themselves, they melted every heart.

Anushka, who is almost a decade old in films, looks not an ounce different from what she was 10 years ago when Bollywood accidentally came calling for her. My love to both @AnushkaSharma & @imVkohli May God bless u with happiness & health.”

Ab yeh hui na real Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. When YRF introduced her, all we knew was she was a 20-year-old girl from Bangalore with a modelling background who walked the ramp for designer Wendell Rodricks. But how she made her way into the biggest production house of Bollywood is an absolute success story. Taani Sahni was a role cut-out for her which still makes newcomers jealous. Even if her films like Bombay Velvet and Jab Harry Met Sejal fail, she delivers something extraordinary to shun all her haters. Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan in a still from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. She will be back on the sets at the start of 2018. Shah Rukh tweeted soon after ‘Virushka’ broke the biggest news of the year to their fans. Anushka plays her own game and we are watching.

Anushka Sharma made her Bollywood debut in 2008 film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi opposite Shah Rukh Khan. Just like Taani, Anushka is as strong-headed and sure about what she does, as she is vulnerable to things like love. From the film’s popular songs like “Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai” to “Dance Pe Chance”, Anushka showed variations and how! Just like Taani was loved, so is this extraordinary actor. Unlike others who might claim of preferring a private wedding ceremony, but end up becoming the centre of media frenzy, Anushka indeed taught everyone what a “private affair” actually means. In short, Anushka also completes nine years in Bollywood.
