After a dream debut starring alongside Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Anushka Sharma‘s next film signing seems to be one from outside the Yash Raj camp. Nikhil Advani’s Patiala House teams Anushka Sharma up with Akshay Kumar.
Now those that are familiar with the Yash Raj banner and their contracts will be aware of a clause that normally says the artist is bound by the camp to do at least three films but this does not seem to be the case with Miss Sharma.
Anushka has confirmed that she is not bound by the Yash Raj contract, “I have a three film deal with YRF, but my contract does not forbid me from pursuing outside films. I don’t understand why there has been a misunderstanding about that. Adi (Aditya Chopra) has been extremely nice to me and he has never stopped me from working outside. When I was backed by a capable production house like YRF, I knew I was in safe hands”
Currently shooting for her second film co starring Shahid Kapoor with Parmeet Sethi making his directorial debut under the Yash Raj Banner, Anushka confirmed that the shooting for Patiala House was pencilled to commence in mid-December after completion of Sethi’s film in December.
When asked about her reasons for signing Patiala House especially after the negative publicity of Chandni Chowk to China, she stated very simply “It would be foolish to judge someone on the failure of his previous film.”
