Indian Runway-Model-Turned-Actress Anushka Sharma Covers Filmfare Middle-East – July 2012

It’s not so much as a statement cover but Ms. Sharma does look pretty in a beige-ish pink sequins et sheer mini dress styled up with tousled locks, nude makeup and a simple black chain bag. Three hit films strong (Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Band Baaja Baaraat & Ladies vs Vicky Bahl) with a film career that began in 2008, the former model discusses her upcoming film projects with ace directors Anurag Kashyap and Raju Hirani among others. The issue is available on international newsstands now or press/media representatives can request a digital copy at

Side Note: The other headline on the cover quoting French-Indian actress Kalki Koechlin (wife of director Anurag Kashyap) as saying she cannot play Bengali village-girl is so hilarious. I don’t believe I need to read the magazine to figure out why she has said this and if you know what Ms. Koechlin looks like versus a Bengali village girl, you will be laughing at her statement too. I just love Kalki, she is one of my favourite new Indian actresses and a fabulous fashionista might I add. Nice to know she has such a healthy sense of humour and does not take herself too seriously. Hopefully, somebody will challenge her and cast her in this role she does not think she can do.

Open Note To Kalki Koechlin: Meryl Streep would never give such a quote! You can do it Kalki, don’t limit yourself. If Robert Downing Jr. could convincingly play an African-American in ‘Tropic Thunder’ without causing any racial uproar, certainly you can play a Bengali village girl. All you need is a tan and drop your Tamilian accent, the acting thing is already in the bag.

French-Indian Actress Kalki Koechlin in head-to-toe Dior Resort at ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ Cannes 2012 Photo-call on Day 7

Kalki always manages to pull off whatever she opts to wear on the red carpet, thanks in part to her school-girl-ballerina physique, bubbly personality and plucky contemporary appeal. Anybody else with the same complexion would have blended into the pale fabric of this dress especially when playing it up with equally neutral looking accessories. ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ directed by her husband Anurag Kashyap is one of the few Indian films screening at the Cannes Film Festival this year.
