After giving away the logo of her new Film ‘Phillauri’, the trailer has been released, as Anushka Sharma had promised. And she is the cutest ghost bride ever. The 28 year old actress had become a producer with NH10 and now this is her second production. In the backdrop of beautiful Punjab, the film traces the story of a ghost (played by Anushka Sharma) who is married to a living person (Suraj Sharma) after he was asked to marry a tree before getting married to his fiancee as he manglik. The beautiful ghost haunts Suraj and his fiancee (Mehreen Pirzada) and they discover she has an unfinished business of her own. Then the story moves to a flashback in which Anushka seems to be in a love with a budding musician played by Diljit Dosanjh and something went wrong in their love story.
“Wedding in the movie is just the backdrop of the story. Phillauri has got shades of drama, craziness and really interesting characters. It is romantic, fun and at the same time very intriguing. The story is set in Phillaur district of Punjab.” – Anushka Sharma
Directed by Anshai Lal and co-produced by Clean Slate Films and Fox Star Studios, other than Anushka, the movie stars Punjabi star Diljit Dosanjh, Life of Pi‘s Suraj Sharma and Mehreen Pirzada. Anushka co-owns Clean Slate Films with her brother Karnesh Sharma.
“I saw Suraj in Million Dollar Arm and realised he is pretty similar to what we were looking for the movie. It is a fresh casting. We feel both Suraj and Diljit bring raw energy to the movie. Diljit comes across as very honest, someone who is a good guy and that connects with people,” Karnesh Sharma
Anushka said the idea to cast Diljit came when she saw his Punjabi film Jatt and Juliet. Also she felt Mehreen was someone who could transform even a typical scene into something else.
“Daljit is hilarious in the movie in a very endearing way. Suraj, Diljit and Mehreen have added newness to the film with their personalities because they are not set in their ways.” – Anushka Sharma
“Phillauri has a unique premise. It took almost 100 years, a crazy Punjabi wedding and rank strangers to complete this love story, and that’s the crux of the film.” – Anushka Sharma
This is the first collaboration of Anushka Sharma with Fox Star studio as a producer. They are excited to work with each other.
“Anushka Sharma is a phenomenal actress and has proven that she is a producer par excellence with her brave first film. We are thrilled to be working with her,” said Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios.
