For any Bollywood star, it is a great honour when they are ranked among the most powerful women in the country. It comes as a validation of their work. Anushka Sharma made her acting debut in the romantic drama Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) opposite Shah Rukh Khan. And there has been no looking back for her since. Having delivered hits like Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), NH10 (2015), Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016), she’s become a household name in India. And now she has been named in Fortune India’s top 50 list of Most Powerful Women this year.
At 31, Anushka Sharma is the youngest woman on the list, coming in at number 39. Notably, Sharma is also the only Bollywood actor to feature on the list
