Today Anushka Sharma is one of the most sought after actresses. She has delivered some fabulous films in the past and is all set to execute many more in the coming time. Not just because of her good looks, but her work as well has won hearts of the movie buffs. Today she has fans not just in the country but across the globe. But her journey in Bollywood wasn’t a cake walk. She had to face many rejections and go through a rough phase. The actress who made her Bollywood debut with the blockbuster film ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ reveals to a leading daily of her first meeting with Aditya Chopra.

When asked if she has ever faced rejection Anushka Sharma told DNA, “I have faced rejection from the age of 15. I don’t talk about it because there’s no need to do that. But, I was constantly getting dropped from shows, picked for an ad and then would get replaced. All that has happened to me, too.” She even said, “But to experience that at the tender age of 15, to be subjected and be judged purely on the basis of how you look, it can be very mentally damaging as well. It hits your self-esteem. I have dealt with it.”

Anushka Sharma who shot to fame with her debut itself explained what she liked about Aditya Chopra and why never felt bad about his comments on her looks. She said, “Adi had said you are not the most good-looking girl we have seen. So it was not because of that reason that he was taking me in ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’. He told me that he signed me purely because of my talent and what I did in the auditions. It felt really good. I didn’t feel bad about it at all when he said I’m not the most good looking girl. Because at least he was being honest with me at that time.” (ALSO READ: Anushka Sharma And Virat Kohli To Open A Restaurant Soon?)
