Anushka Sharma had a debut that few can dream of in Bollywood, especially with no family background in the industry.
In Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, paired with the country's biggest star - Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka made filmgoes take notice of her. Not to mention, her first film was under one of the biggest production houses of Bollywood - Yash Raj Films - which proved that this is an actor to watch out for.
Despite a few silly films that followed in her initial years, Anushka's talent and stardom only got better with the roles she chose and the stories she told. Check out five of our favourites among Anushka Sharma's Bollywood ventures here.
