Anushka Sharma: MF Hussain’s New Muse

Starting from Madhuri Dixit, Tabu, then Amrita Rao, and now Anushka Sharma is a new muse of 95-year-old painter and artist, M F Hussain has seen her latest movie, Band Baaja Baaraat 8 times at last count. Apparently, the artist is looking forward to watch her movies several more times.

Mr. Hussain finds the movie fascinating and surprisingly he travels from Doha to Dubai to watch her movie with his family and friends. And interestingly, when he watches the flick, he does not put on his spectacles. He has been claiming that ever since he saw Anushka, his vision has improved!

Mumbai-based businessman Munna Javeri, who is close friend of MF Hussain and watched movie with him on the new year eve, says,

“In the cinema hall I was shocked to seen him remove his glasses. He knew all the dialogues and he viewed the film like a painting filled with colours. If only he had a brush in hand. ”

Husain says,

“It’s still running to packed halls in its fourth week. Anushka was okay in the Shah Rukh starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, but in Band Baaja Baaraat she has proved what an intelligent actor she is. She knows what subtle acting is all about. Even Ranveer Singh is good.”

He feels the movie has a crisp, well-written script and the second half springs a twist.

“It is a simple subject without any complications. This is what leading filmmakers must learn who unnecessarily complicate their movies.”

When asked from him whether he is obsessed with wedding-based flicks, he said,

“It’s not that because they are all wedding related. It is because they celebrate life and colours which I cherish.”

The artist has watched the Madhuri Dixit-starrer Hum Aapke Hain Koun 73 times and Amrita Rao-starrer Vivaah 20 times.
