Anushka Sharma: I’ve tried to have a distinct voice in cinema
Mumbai– Actress-producer Anushka Sharma says she has tried to be a disruptive storyteller with the projects she has bankrolled and added that in all her career she has tried to have a distinct voice in cinema.
“We have tried to be disruptive storytellers who would give audiences something new that they would have never seen before. It comes organically to both (brother and production house partner) Karnesh and me and I’m glad people are loving our edgy attempts aimed at breaking the content clutter in India,” Anushka said.
The actress, who is currently riding on the positive response to her latest projects “Pataal Lok” and “Bulbbul”, says the content she is producing is an extension of the kind of scripts she would make.
“All my career, I have tried to have a distinct voice in cinema through my choice of films and roles and the content I am producing with Karnesh at Clean Slate Filmz is only an extension to the kind of script choices I would make otherwise. We were sure that our production house would need to stand apart with projects that audiences would not find any earlier reference point.”
She added: “We take pride in the content that we have produced so far because we have backed originality of ideas and we want to keep it this way. It’s the only way we know we could operate.”
Anushka’s brother Karnesh says he is thankful to the audiences for loving their work.

Kangana urges fans not to fall for cheap Chinese products
Mumbai– Actress Kangana Ranaut says Chinese manufacture everything “sasta and cheap”, and that people should not go by their products.
Kangana’s message to fans comes after the Indian Government issued an interim order to block Chinese apps in India.
“The government has banned Chinese apps and I think most people are celebrating because China is like we all know, it’s a communist country and the way they have gone deep into our economy and our system… the data is scary, how much our business was dependent on China and this year apart from being the originator of coronavirus and giving the world the biggest adversity of recent times. In the midst of this adversity, now they are messing with our borders in Ladakh and they don’t only want Ladakh. In the scheme of things, they want Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim. They also want your Assam and it’s never ending,” said Kangana.
“You can see the greed of these people and of course even the world is astonished by their ways of life and by the way they ill-treat animals and the way they beat you up if you do idol worshipping or if you follow your religion. I say that you know being an extremist or being a communist, both ways are extreme. Why do you want to believe there is god or no god? Why do you want to be so sure? Why can’t you just be that…you don’t know? I don’t agree with their ways and obviously they’ve shown their real crude faces to the world. Also with this pandemic and the bio-war that they’ve unleashed on the world. What is feeding them is their economy. So it is definitely better we cut their roots here in India and of course when there will not be so much revenue and money, their evil power will come down and the world will be a better place,” she added.
Kangana has always urged people to go local and endorses the idea to all her fans.
