Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, who is enjoying the success of her recently released film Sultan, has said that she turned down Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha because the focus was too much on the male protagonist.

On being asked if she has any regrets of turning down the film, Anushka said though she had not seen the movie, she felt that had she done it, she would have been praised.

“I have no doubt that if I did the film, I would be praised. Any actor in an Imtiaz Ali film will always be good for he is a good director and is very good with his actors,” she said.

Actress Deepika Padukone, however, got the role of female lead opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Anushka Sharma will now be seen opposite Shahrukh Khan in Imtiaz Ali’s next.
