Newcomer Anushka Sharma, who is on cloud nine after a dream debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi,' has received all round praise for her performance in the film by everyone but says her best compliment came from none other than Shah Rukh Khan.
"Shah Rukh came to me after the release of the film and said, 'Thank you for making the film look so beautiful and thank you for making me look so good in the film," Anushka told PTI over phone.
The actress was also elated to find that her performance was liked by the veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra. "Yashji also liked my performance in the film and nothing feels better than this for me," says Anushka.
The erstwhile unknown 19-year-old ramp model was picked up by Yash Raj camp to play the lead opposite Shah Rukh Khan for their ambitious project, but the success of the film has made her an overnight star. The film is still riding high even three weeks after its release.
Anushka finds herself lucky to work with Bollywood's megastar.
"Despite being a big star, Shah Rukh is very down to earth. I was completely blown over by his passion, dedication and enthusiasm that he brings in his work. I have always respected him but his dedication towards his work has made me respect him more than ever," She says.
