She says essaying such a character gives her a creative high and adds to her perspective.
Asked if the process of convincing oneself to believe in a character that one has to play on screen gives her creative growth, Anushka told IANS here: "Yes, it does. I enjoy when my philosophy is challenged by my onscreen character. Then I start analysing the mindset, the values and beliefs of the character... why is she like that.
"I start looking at things from a different perspective. As an actress, if I manage to do that on screen convincingly, I feel good."
The story of Jab Harry Met Sejal, which features superstar Shah Rukh Khan as Harry -- the male lead, revolves around how Sejal (Anushka) sets out on a journey with tourist guide Harry.
Giving a little insight into her character Sejal, Anushka said: "She is very superficial, doesn't have any depth as a person. There is no similarity with me. But her morals and values of self-respect are something that I can relate to. But otherwise, the character is quite impulsive by nature."
The shooting of the film took place in different places like Prague, Amsterdam, Vienna, Lisbon and Budapest.
Sharing her experience of shooting films abroad, Anushka said meeting fans there is one of the best things to experience.
Jab Harry Met Sejal is set to release on August 4.
