Mumbai: Anushka Sharma will receive Dadasaheb Phalke Awards for her contribution in the production of Hindi movies soon.
She made films like 'NH10', 'Phillauri' and 'Pari' under her banner, and the latest it is being heard that she is keen to produce an out-and-out comedy next.
"Right now, details are very sketchy. But what can be confirmed is that Anushka has been very interested - for a while now - in trying her hand at comedy. Although she as well as her team is tight-lipped about it, the project is finally in the process of being put together," a trade insider told Hindustan Times.
"Anushka will take the call (about starring in the comedy film or not) once she completes her current acting projects. The actor, who has been exploring diverse subjects and taking calculated and successful risks - as an actor as well as a producer - feels that it's the best time to experiment with comedy," says the insider.
"But it will also have a different touch that has become her USP of sorts as a producer," says the insider.
