Mom-to-be Anushka Sharma is one of the successful actresses of Bollywood, who has established herself as one of the versatile stars of the entertainment industry. While everyone remembers her sensational debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, the gorgeous beauty revealed a brutal advise from director Aditya Chopra in one of the episodes of Koffee With Karan, who once told Anushka that she is not the most good-looking girl.

The actress said, “I was on the fourth floor, in Aditya Chopra’s office. He just said, ‘Listen, I have a lot of belief in your talent. I think you are a very talented actress but I don’t think you are very good-looking. You’re not the most good-looking girl, so you have to make sure that you work really hard. You’re on for Taani (her character in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi).” She added, “When I left the office, I was very cool. I said thank you and I was very proper.”
The actress said she cried after hearing that advise as she said, “At one point, I stopped the car because I realised I was crying. I was crying so much. My parents were not in town, so I called my mom and I said, ‘I can’t believe this is happening right now.” She also spoke about facing rejections before Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and asserted, “I used to think I am very, very good-looking. Like, ‘Haan, haan, aise toh main bhi lag sakti hoon (Yeah, yeah, even I can look like this).’ If I just have the right make-up and right hair and all that. It’s only after I met Aditya Chopra that I saw myself on the monitor for the first time while shooting… I was in the dulhan ka joda (bridal attire). I saw myself the first time on screen and I was like, ‘He is right. I am not that good-looking.”
