Anushka Sharma, straight off the success of ‘Sultan’, which stars Salman Khan, has said that she turned down Imtiaz Ali’s 2015 movie ‘Tamasha’ because it was too much male centric – that Anushka is a feminist of sorts is clear from the fact that she went and called Salman insensitive when he refused to apologise for his ‘raped woman’ remark. Actress Deepika Padukone, however, got the role of female lead opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
On being asked if she has any regrets of turning down the film and making for Deepika Padukone’s windfall, Anushka Sharma, 28, said though she had not seen the movie, she felt that had she done it, she would have been praised, reports PinkVilla.
“I have no doubt that if I did the film I would be praised. Any actor in an Imtiaz Ali film will always be good for he is a good director and is very good with his actors,” she said.
Imtiaz Ali’s directorial, which received Filmfare nominations for direction, music and performances of the lead actors, made average business at the B.O.
