Anushka Sharma has announced her departure from Clean Slate Filmz, the production company she co-founded with her brother Karnesh Sharma. The actress used social media to make an official announcement about the news. Anushka explained in a comprehensive note that she is leaving CSF to pursue acting full-time.
Anushka Sharma and her brother Karnesh Sharma started Clean Slate Filmz at the age of 25, and the dynamic duo developed content like NH10, Pari, Phillauri, Bulbbul, and Pataal Lok in a short amount of time.
The actress’ official statement read, “When I started Clean Slate Filmz with my brother Karnesh Ssharma, 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.”
“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 actress, who is gearing up for her film Chakda Xpress, further 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!”
