As the actor turned 32 recently, she shared how her father became an influential figure of her life when she was growing up. The Band Baaja Baraat star was quoted as saying that her teachers and the Principal at the Army Public School in Bangalore were close to her and left a ‘lasting impression’ on her mind. However, it was her father’s ‘invaluable lessons’ during that phase that stood out for her.

Anushka recalled how her father would drop her to school every day and they would have conversations during the ‘little bit too long’ journey. The actor-producer said one advice given by Sharma Sr influenced her personality and the way she dealt with challenges. The Dil Dhadakne Do star reminisced that her father asked her to ‘always do the right thing’ and pray to God about knowing what’s the right decision, irrespective of how good or bad the situation might be.

Anushka said that this advice stuck with her when she started working at a ‘very young age’ of 14-15, when it was 'hard’ to make the decisions for her career. The actor shared that this thought gave her clarity at that time.
