Anushka Sharma’s second production, Phillauri is already creating magic thanks to its trailer which has crossed the 10 million views on Facebook and YouTube.
The film has Anushka playing the role of a friendly ghost who gets involved in a crazy Punjabi wedding. Reacting to the success of the trailer, Anushka says, “I am overwhelmed with the response to the trailer. At Clean Slate Films, our philosophy is that of pushing the envelope creatively. We hope to bring great content that entertains and believe in working with fresh talent as well. With Phillauri, we bring a simple story that has the potential to appeal to a much wider audience. It’s entertaining for everyone, and yet, not run of the mill.” Anushka made her debut as a producer with NH10 that released in 2015.
Phillauri stars Punjabi actor Diljit Dosanjh opposite Anushka. Diljit’s debut Hindi film was Udta Punjab, that released last year. He says, “I found both my role and the film’s story very interesting. Working with Anushka has been a pleasure, and I am very excited to be a part of this entertaining love story.” Directed by debutant Anshai Lal and written by Anvita Dutt, the film has been produced by Fox Star Studios and Clean Slate Films and will release on March 24.
