She has worked in iconic Indian films like Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Band Baaja Baaraat, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Sultan, PK, Sanju, NH10, Phillauri among others. She also ventured into production with her production house Clean Slate Filmz and produced content like BulBul and Paatal Lok to critical acclaim. While the actress is making her big comeback to Bollywood with cricketer Jhulan Goswami’s cricketer biopic, she has made some sacrifices along the way.

Anushka Sharma on March 19 stunned her followers and admirers when she announced that she had decided to step down from the production house she founded, Clean Slate Filmz. In a note Anushka uploaded to her social media, she wrote, “When I started Clean Slate Filmz with my brother Karnesh Ssharma, we were new to production, but we had a fire in our stomachs and wanted to try. to set India’s entertainment agenda with decluttering content. Today, when I look back on our journey thus far, I am deeply proud of what we have created and the disruption we have managed to achieve.

She added: “While CSF started with my vision to change the narrative of what business projects should look like, I have to thank Karnesh who excelled in shaping what CSF has become today. Being a new mother who chose to be an actress by profession, I have to balance my life in an entirely new way like never before. So, I’ve decided that whatever time I have, I will dedicate to my first love, theater! Therefore, I have decided to retire from the CSF, convinced that the most capable person, Karnesh, is pursuing the vision with which it was created in the first place. I will continue to be Karnesh and CSF’s greatest cheerleader and hope to be a part of many messy projects that CSF produces. I can’t wait to see how he grows the company stronger and stronger with the stellar lineup of projects he has handpicked, nurtured and brought to life. My best wishes to the entire CSF family. I love you all!”

Anushka Sharma’s decision to step away from her production house so she can focus on her acting career and also take care of her daughter, was welcomed by many as they could understand how much he had to be immersive when producing content. She had gone on hiatus in 2018 and was last seen in Aanand L Rai’s directorial titled Zero alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
