"I have to balance my life in an entirely new fashion"
Anushka Sharma has taken to her Instagram handle to issue a statement about stepping away from Clean Slate Filmz.
The Bollywood actress founded the production house at the age of 25 with her brother Karnesh Sharma.
The statement read: ”When I started Clean Slate Filmz with my brother Karnesh Sharma, we were novices when it came to production but we had a fire in our belly and we wanted to try and set the agenda of entertainment in India through clutter-breaking content.
“Today, when I look back at our journey so far, I’m deeply proud of what we have created and the disruption that we have managed to achieve.”
She further added: ”While CSF started with my vision to change the narrative of what commercial projects should be like, I have to credit Karnesh who has excelled in shaping what CSF has become today.
“Being a new mother who has chosen to be an actor by profession, I have to balance my life in an entirely new fashion like never before.
“So, I have decided that whatever time I have at hand, I will dedicate it to my first love, acting!
“Therefore, I have decided to step away from CSF, confident that the most able person, Karnesh, is taking forward the vision with which it was created in the first place.”
The post was captioned as: ”Onwards and Upwards @kans26 @officialcsfilms!
“My best wishes are always with you!!”
The actress hopes that the production house will go from strength to strength under Karnesh.
She added: “I will continue to be the biggest cheerleader for Karnesh and CSF and hope to be a part of many clutter-breaking projects that would be produced by CSF.
“I can’t wait to see how he grows the company from strength to strength with the stellar line-up of projects that he has handpicked, nurtured and given life to.
“My best wishes to the entire family at CSF. Love you all!”
Now, she is busy prepping for Chakda Xpress.
Chakda Xpress, the biopic of cricketer Jhulan Goswami, marks Anushka’s first film in three years.
Directed by Prosit Roy and produced by Anushka Sharma’s Clean Slate Filmz, Chakda Xpress is set to release directly onto Netflix.
The film is set to release on February 2, 2023.
The actress was last seen in 2018’s Zero, which was considered a flop at the box office, alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
