Anushka Sharma recently returned from London where she had gone to support her husband for the Cricket World Cup, 2019. After India was thrashed out of the World Cup, Anushka Sharma and hubby Virat Kohli extended their stay and spent some quality time together in the city. Anushka Sharma was last seen on the big screen as a wheelchair-bound scientist in Aanand L Rai's Zero and is yet to sign her next project. Many have questioned why the actress has not signed a project this year which has given rise to speculation that she may be pregnant.
In a recent interview, Anushka Sharma opened up about life with Virat Kholi, her marriage and her career. She revealed during the interview that she was "feeling too worked up" and decided to take a breather from films for a while. When she was questioned further about taking this break, Anushka said, "That's a conscious decision. I wanted to take a couple of months off after Zero. After I got married, it was like a whirlwind. I was back on the sets shooting for Sui Dhaaga: Made In India and later Zero. I was just working back to back." She went on to add that "Whatever time I'd get, I'd try to balance and meet Virat. But I was feeling too worked up. I needed to take two months off. I told my team I don't even want to read anything right now."
Being one of Bollywood’s highest paid actresses comes with its fair share of pressures. Anushka said that there was pressure to take up another project immediately, but people in creative fields need to take a break from time to time. "It's important as a creative person to take time off but you deny yourself that. Of course, there's pressure. You're constantly asked, 'Kaunsi film sign kar rahe ho?'" she said.
While Anushka may have decided to take a sabbatical from acting, she is busy with her production ventures. Her banner Clean Slate Films will serve as executive producers on the Netflix original series, Mai. This is her second collaboration with the streaming giant after the horror film Bulbul.
