This is why Anushka Sharma did NH10


A bruised woman is dragging a metal rod on an empty and dimly lit street and its screeching sound is enough to bring shivers down your spine. She unflinchingly picks it up and begins to shower unending abuses on the two men on a bike. Intriguing as hell, the opening sequence of the NH10 trailer not just sets the tone of the film but also shows its lead actress Anushka Sharma in a new avatar. Fighting to protect herself from a bunch of men in a lawless land, Anushka has already put across NH10 as her film and many also see it as one of the few women-oriented films to make its way to the screens in 2015.

Anushka Sharma says NH10 is not a female-centric film 
But the actress begs to differ as she calls NH10 a gender-equal film. "NH 10 is not about naari shakti. It is a gender-equal film and that's what makes this film beautiful. I never looked at NH10 as a female-centric film. Even a man could have been a protagonist. What happens with my character in the film could happen with anyone irrespective of the gender. The film is about how badly a person could be pushed till they decide to strike back."

Angry and unpardonable, Anushka mercilessly takes revenge from a bunch of men in NH10 and it's this new dimension to her onscreen persona that attracted the actress to take up the film. "I have tried to do films that excite me. I have never read anything as unique as NH10 and I think that such stories, which are too close to reality, should be brought to the audiences. More than that, working on NH10 was a unique experience for me. You not just play the character but also follow his mental journey and struggle."
So much was she intrigued by the script of the film that she did not just grab the opportunity of working in the film with both her hands but also decided to don the hat of a producer with this thriller. "What attracted me to NH10 was the fact that it is an original and unique film. Filmmaking is a business and commercial films do get much attention. But films like NH 10 are a struggle to make. However, we all believed in the film and thought it was important to bring this story in front of the audiences."

Unique scripts are not new to Bollywood and a handful of small-budget films in the recent past have managed to get a great response at the box office. But the catch remains that with no big stars, these films rely only on word of mouth publicity. However, that's not the case with NH10 as the film has also attracted eyeballs due to Anushka's presence in the film.
"I agree when A-listers back such films there are more chances of attracting the audiences to the theatre and people love to watch good cinema. As an actor, we all are looking out for good cinema and want to leave a mark with the kind of work we do. Films like NH10 add to the shelf life of the actors associated with it."
The dark and brutal story is expected to bring out the hard reality that persists in the society, but the censor has already run its scissors on the film with nine cuts. And, the makers are definitely not happy with the decision. Vikramaditya Motwane, one of the producer of the film says, "It is disappointing to see a part of the film get edited. Our audiences are far too intelligent and I think we are underestimating their intelligence."
Anushka echoes his sentiments, "The cuts did not change the impact of the film but it doses hurt when scenes are cut. We have made this film because we beleive that audience exists for it. I think there should be rating system for the films and not cut. We are killing the concept of coming up with so many original ideas. We have the exit gates to walk out of the film."
Directed by Navdeep Singh, the film is slated to be released on March 13.
