Contrary to popular beliefs thanks to a story by a leading daily, that Indian skipper Virat Kohli has invested in his girl-friend and actress Anushka Sharma’s production, Phillauri, Anushka has come up with her side of the story refuting such claims.

Phillauri is produced by FOX STAR HINDI & CLEAN SLATE FILMS. So those TV channels/newspapers/websites claiming anything else, please check FACTS, practice responsible journalism & have some shame. By making such bogus claims and validating this rubbish by your so called ‘source’, not only are you disrespecting me & the hard work I have put in over the years to be where I am, but also, all the people who have worked on this film. Freedom of press comes with accountability & your fake sources are never accounted for,” she said in a statement.

And she adds, “I have always led my career with dignity and often chose to maintain a dignified silence on many untruthful stories, that doesn’t mean you can take my silence as my weakness and say anything without checking with me or my team!  For someone who makes a living out of maligning people, it must definitely be hard to believe that a person can stand on their own feet and do something meaningful with their life.”

“And next time these same people come wanting to talk about ‘women empowerment’ and ‘women in films today’ do remember this is what you do to ‘women in films’ who are trying to change the narrative & take charge of their own careers. This must be just another story for you but it’s someone’s life you are toying with. I am more than capable of producing and promoting my own films. Thank you,” Anushka elaborates. This should put all speculations to rest and hopefully, honest journalism will prevail henceforth.
