Anushka Sharma looks beyond acting. She wants to spread her wings and hence the decision to turn producer. Now, Anushka’s Clean Slate Films has announced the release date of its second film Phillauri. The film co-produced by Fox Star Studios will release on March 24, next year. Shot extensively in Punjab, it stars apart from Anushka, Diljit Dusanjh, Suraj Sharma and Mehreen Pirzada. Phillauri is Anushka’s second film as a producer after NH-10.
The shoot began on Baisakhi earlier this year in a start-to-finish schedule that wrapped up by June end. Phillauri is a fun-filled romantic film set in Phillaur, Punjab. Directed by debutant Anshai Lal and written by Anvita Dutt, the film has a unique premise- “It took almost 100 years, a crazy Punjabi wedding and rank strangers to complete this love story.”
“High concept Bollywood films are being universally loved by audiences and critics. Phillauri falls perfectly under this bracket. It has a unique concept that hasn’t been explored before and has the perfect balance of romance and comedy, a fresh exciting pairing and of course Anushka, who has won hearts with her performances,” say the producers.
