The first actress from Bollywood who went into producer’s shoes for NH10, Pari and now Amazon Prime’s Patal Lok. Here we have 5 of her characters which impressed everyone and made her relatable like never before.

Taani Singh from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

Anushka’s debut character Taani was opposite Shah Rukh Khan’s Surinder Sahni. Taani and Surinder are married, and as much as Surinder is in love with Taani, she cannot feel the same love for him.

Their life gets mundane over time and Suri then decides to make Taani fall in love with him. To do so, Suri becomes Raj who is a modern boy and enjoys life to the fullest.

Yashraj Films gave us a married couple who danced on thumping beats, fall in love gradually and realize that they are perfect for each other. Tracks like Har Janam Mein, Tujhme Rab Dikhta Hai, Dance Pe Chance and Haule Haule took away our hearts.

Shruti Kakkar from Band Baaja Baaraat

Anushka and Ranveer had a blast with this movie. The movie was hugely successful along with their performances as Bittu and Shruti being appreciated vastly. Directed by Manish Sharma and produced by Yashraj , the movie garnered critical acclaim.

This amazing mixture of humor, drama and romance managed close to 100-crores at the ticket window. The searing chemistry comes so effortlessly between them that it is hard to not believe their characters.

Ishika from Ladies Vs Ricky Behl

What happens when two con artists fall in love? Anushka and Ranveer’s jodi became such a hit after Band Baaja Baaraat , that Yashraj offered them Ladies Vs Ricky Behl. Directed by Maneesh Sharma it marked debut of Ishaqzaade fame Parineeti Chopra.

Anushka’s first venture as a producer was a critical success. She and Nell Bhoopalam did a fantastic job as a couple who are on run for their life in Gurugram suburbs. A low budget movie which managed to earn fairly well, it has been written by Sudeep Sharma and directed by Navdeep Singh.

Highlighting the subject of honor killing, it shows Darshan Kumar and Deepti Naval in important roles. Meera and her husband get caught in a fight that never concerned them, and she loses everything. A woman who just wanted a regular life, has nothing regular left anymore; she becomes a killer to avenge her husband.
