Speaking about breaking the stereotypes and venturing into genres that haven't been explored enough, Anushka had told a leading daily, "I have always been unconventional with my choices as an actor and especially as a producer. As an A-list actress, I want to emphasise on content and bring in elements that have not been tried before. If I succeed, then it will add value to it. It’s something that people are not getting into because many times people have this mentality that they need one person to start something and then everybody starts doing it. And I don’t mind being the person who tries new things." What are your thoughts on this? Tell us in the comments below and stay tuned with us for more.
