Fortune India has now released another list, this time of the most powerful women of 2019 and it has none other than Indian actress Anushka Sharma. She has made it to India’s top 50 list as the only Bollywood actor to feature in it. 

Anushka is the youngest woman on the list and ranks 39. 

In her brief, Fortune India wrote, “Sharma is not only the face of her clothing line Nush and several other brands such as Nivea, Elle 18, Myntra and Lavie, but also a producer. Clean Slate Films, which Sharma set up when she was 25, has produced three small-budget Hindi films - NH10, Phillauri, and Pari.

“They made around Rs 40 crore each at the box office. Moving beyond Bollywood, Clean Slate Films has tied up with Netflix to produce a feature film titled Bulbul and a web-series called Mai. It is also developing and producing a web-series for Amazon Prime Video,” it continued. 

Ace TV producer-director Ekta Kapoor also features on the list as she shared space with celebrity designer Ritu Kumar.

Fortune’s annual ranking of India’s most powerful women in business is chosen on the basis of the individual’s impact by virtue of their business acumen and social-cultural influence.
