Post success of Band.., I'm seen as a bankable actor: Anushka

Basking in the glory of Band Baaja Baarat, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, who is eyeing a fourth hit with her upcoming film Patiala House says her last outing has made her a bankable actor in the industry.

"After Band Baaja Baarat people are viewing me differently. I am seen in a new light. Now, I am seen as a bankable actor. There are lot of good things and lot of appreciation coming my way. I am feeling comfortable right now in the industry,"  said Anuska.

The actress has given three back-to-back hits right from her debut film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi to Badmash Company and Band Baaja Baarat. All the three films were made under the Yash Raj banner. She will now be seen next in Nikhil Advani's Patiala House opposite Akshay Kumar.

"It feels great to me that all my three films have been liked by the audience. I am looking forward to the release of Patiala House and I hope it becomes a hit. Post the success of BBB I have got lot of offers but I am very choosy about the film. I do only things that excite me," Anushka said.

Patiala House shows how a second-generation Sikh Guttu (Akshay Kumar) and his siblings in London held back their dreams, in love and respect for their authoritarian father (Rishi Kapoor) until Guttu meets Simran (Anushka) who gives him the strength to stand up to fulfil his dream. The film is about generation gap and chasing dreams.

When asked did she face any objection and pressure from her parents in real life, the 22-year-old actress, said, "I never felt any pressure from my family. I wanted to become a model and my parents were ok with it. Then I wanted to become an actor and my parents were fine with it as well. I never felt any parental pressure...that way I have been lucky."
