Anushka's been a bride before!

On reel, of course!

Anushka Sharma's beaming bride in a dreamy pink and peach Sabyasachi lehenga is easily among the most beautiful images of 2017.

It shouldn't come as a surprise though.

The 29-year-old actress has cut an exquisite picture as a big screen dulhania on quite a few occasions.

Sukanya Verma takes us on a journey featuring Anushka's bridal avatars on celluloid.



Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

It's Sabyasachi working his grand magic on Anushka yet again for Karan Johar's deeply romantic Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.


Jab Harry Met Sejal

Technically, she's not the bride. But as the bride-to-be partaking in a typically Bollywood-style wedding celebration, Anushka's colourful attire and festive spirit has our heart and vote.



She may play a snoopy spirit for most part of her home production, but Anushka turns every bit the blushing bride in phulkari for its poignant flashback.



There's an understated elegance to Anushka's cream and gold Muslim bride befitting her tough, no-nonsense state-level wrestler stature.



Anushka is cute as a button in her neat pixie and little white lace dress for an intimate church wedding that doesn't pan out as planned.


Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola

The actress flexes her comic chops to play the drunk as a fish Haryanvi bride in traditional attire living her Meena Kumari complex reputation to the hilt.


Band Baaja Baaraat

From planning weddings to participating in one, Anushka's spunky dulhan shows how to have your cake and eat it too.


Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

As the shy, sweet Punjabi bride compelled to marry a much older man, played by Shah Rukh Khan, in tragic circumstances, Anushka maintains a low-key profile.
