Anushka Sharma may have been a part of one of Bollywood’s biggest disasters but even though she may have moved on from the ‘Bombay Velvet’ (2015) debacle, she feels that her co-star, Ranbir Kapoor is still being targeted.
Kapoor hasn’t had much luck at the box office recently with ‘Tamasha’ (2016) and ‘Jagga Jasoos’ (2017) not doing as well as expected. Talking about Kapoor, Sharma was cited in Mid-Day saying, “What happened to him (Ranbir Kapoor) was unfair. He is one of the best actors we have today. But it’s also because Bombay Velvet was Johnny’s film more than Rosie’s. I would have been held solely responsible if NH10 [Anushka’s first film as a producer and female lead] had flopped, not because I produced it, but because the film was riding on my shoulders. But, he (Ranbir Kapoor) continues to be targeted also because of the other films he did [that didn’t fare well]. I was relatively less affected because I had successful films before and after Bombay Velvet.”
Sharma is currently promoting her next film ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, out on 4th August 2017.
