Being an army kid makes you adaptive and open-minded: Anushka Sharma on Army Day

Mumbai, Jan 15 (IBNS): Anushka Sharma is one proud army kid. The actor has often credited her father Col. Ajay Kumar Sharma for her success and spoken about her upbringing as a defence ward.

She’s also spoken of the family’s fears during the 1999 Kargil War, in which her father fought.

On Army day, thanking soldiers for their selfless service, she says she owes everything to the organisation.

“I wish to extend my heartiest congratulations and best wishes to all ranks and officers of the Indian Army, specially to all deployed in field areas. To the Indian Army, I owe my being, my persona and my outlook. Being an army kid has instilled great confidence in me because of the open, non gender-bias environment I was raised in. We become adaptive, open-minded and survivors,” said the actor on Sunday, who has given hits such as Sultan (2016), Band Baaja Baaraat (2010) and Dil Dhadakne Do (2015).
