Who doesn't like unassuming, unflappable, down to earth people. All the more, if the person is a film star or a celebrity.
Anushka Sharma is leaving no stone unturned to promote her latest film Phillauri in which she plays a friendly ghost, starring opposite Diljit Dosanjh. Sharma is also co-producing the movie with Fox Star Studios.
With plenty riding on the film, Anushka has to be under some pressure and no one would really mind if she behaved a bit like a diva. So, it is refreshing to see the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil star retain her presence of mind, and remain courteous and polite amid all the hurly-burly.
In the middle of the Q&A session for Phillauri when one of the reporters' phone, which was placed at the table to record Anushka and Dosanjh's answers, rang, she spontaneously took the call and informed the reporter's mother that her daughter was in an interview and will call her back once she's done.
Anushka said, "Hello aunty. Woh interview mein hai abhi toh, aapko baad me phone karti hai. Main Anushka bol rahi hun. Mera le rahi hai, Anushka Sharma ka." ("Hello Aunty. She is taking an interview. She'll call you later. She is interviewing me. Anushka Sharma.")
Her spontaneity prompted the room full of journalists erupt in laughter and doubtless won her a few points for her considerate gesture.
