Since then she has given made hits and the acting’s not the only thing that she’s been up to. Anushka launched her production banner Clean Slate Films in 2015 under which she has bankrolled films like “NH10”, “Pari”, “Phillauri” and the web-series “Paatal Lok”. Anushka recently spoke about her acting career and said “I have had an incredible journey, started off very well in the industry and got appreciated for the work I did. I stood out as an actor and it is of prime importance to me that I’m known for my work, and I think I established that as an actor. 

When asked about what made her try her hand in production, she said “I took risks as an actor and a lot of them paid off. I think the ability that I have to take risks, to take bold steps with my career choices, has continued, and is reflective of me as a producer, because of the kind of content that we have chosen to produce,”. Anushka also shared that the content she has chosen has been different, and has pushed boundaries. Anushka said she wants to work towards unique content. “When I’m taking bold decisions and I’m taking risks, I feel worthy of the position that I am in. I feel like I want to leverage that position I’ve made for myself as an actor to be able to push stories and back creative individuals and talent to create something genuinely unique and new. These have been the steps that we have taken and those steps have led us to a show like ‘Paatal Lok’,” she said. She said that as a producer she gets to be a part of the entire process and it’s something she likes about it. “There are so many things that change. There are so many things you need to be cognitive of. You have to be alert, you have to be making decisions at every stage and to get an entire team together to have the process moving along smoothly,”
