Working with Karan Johar makes you look good, says Anushka Sharma

The actress said artistes from non-film backgrounds have many challenges to overcome, but life is not easy for those from a film background either.

Actress Anushka Sharma says one does not need to pay attention to one's looks when working with filmmaker Karan Johar on a movie.

"I am someone who doesn't pay so much attention to how I am looking, I get so involved in what I am doing, so I overlook that. [But] when you're working with Karan Johar and [designer] Manish Malhotra you can just focus on acting because you know every frame you are going to look good," she said.

"That is the beauty of working with Karan Johar; you are going to look your best."

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which also stars Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Pakistani star Fawad Khan, delves into the complexities of unrequited love.

The film, which is slated to be released on Friday, traces the journey of Kapoor's character as an aspiring singer and his relationships at different points of time.

The 28-year-old actress, who made her acting debut in Hindi cinema with the blockbuster Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi in 2008, comes from an army background and had no backing in the industry. She made it on her own, but she agreed that actresses coming from non-film backgrounds have their own challenges to overcome.

"I think everything has its own pros and cons. I feel there is a great sense of achievement coming from a non-film background. But when you are going through a low phase you don't have anybody to advise you because your parents possibly can't advise you on that," she said. "Because they are outsiders, when you have to figure it out for yourself it's not easy. Having said that, people who come from industry have their own challenges."
