Anushka Sharma is back with her second production, Phillauri! She has already proved with NH10, the first film she produced, that she means business. NH10 was a box office success and Anushka was praised for the kind of cinema she has ventured into. Being directed by Anshai Lal and produced by Anushka and her brother Karnesh, Phillauri is a romantic comedy with lots of drama and craziness. The 2 minutes 55 second Phillauri Trailer is enough to build curiosity amongst the viewers about the film.
Before the film hits the theatre on March 24th , here’s everything you should know about “Phillauri”:
1. The Plot
Phillauri is set against the backdrop of a Punjabi wedding in the Phillaur district of Punjab. But it is not a wedding drama. The story of the film revolves around Anushka’s character, Shashi, who is a spirit. The story and concept of the film is unique and has shades of romance, drama and fun. Anushka Sharma has never played a spirit/ghost in a film. It’s a first-of-its-kind role for her.
