's latest Netflix production Bulbbul is receiving a lot of praise for its strong female lead. In a new interview, Anushka has revealed that she collaborated with her brother Karnesh to bring forward strong women through cinema. She said, "The idea that Clean Slate Filmz (her production house, which she runs with her brother Karnesh) would one day create a genre of our own was never an intentional move. We, however, always wanted to create a style of storytelling that celebrates women and their spirit. We always wanted to show strong, independent women to audiences through cinema and 'Bulbbul' is our new offering in this regard."
Anushka also thanked all her fans for loving Bulbbul. She said, "We are really proud that 'Bulbbul' is being loved by the audience because Karnesh and I really put our necks on the line to make projects that we hope will be clutter-breaking. The fact that people have called each and every attempt of ours as daring and adventurous is validation enough for us."
"Karnesh and I aren't scared storytellers. We make each project thinking we have nothing to lose. We are non-conformists and that's what has really, really helped us to explore and create. It is a huge milestone moment for us because both 'Pataal Lok' and 'Bulbbul' have got great reviews and janata appreciation, " she added.
Anvita Dutt has directed Bulbbul. The film stars Avinash Tiwari, Tripti Dimri, and Rahul Bose in lead roles. Virat Kohli and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap
