The Curious Case Of Anushka Sharma

I remember reading an article from Bombay Times last December where writer Salim Khan commented: “Success has destroyed more people than failure”. Are there truly some side-effects of fame, stardom and success? (Anushka Sharma before RNBDJ) It’s no small achievement to share screen space with an actor of the calibre of SRK in your very […]
