Is it based on Corpse Bride? Will Anushka Sharma come back to life in the end? These were a few questions that went around people’s mind after they saw the Phillauri trailer. Besides the actress, this March 24 release stars Diljit Dosanjh and Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi fame). Phillauri is the second movie that is produced by Anushka and her brother Karunesh's banner – Clean Slate Films. Sharma was keen on producing movies so that she could promote fresh talent and new ideas. While the Khans, Akshay Kumar, and Ajay Devgn are known to finance movies, here are the other Bollywood actresses who turned producers. 

Juhi Chawla

The actress co-owned the production house, Dreamz Unlimited with Shah Rukh and Aziz Mirza. She produced Chalte Chalte, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, and Asoka. After a fallout with SRK, Chawla shut the banner. 

Ameesha Patel 


Since no movies were on her plate, Ameesha Patel decided to produce one herself. Desi Magic has been in the making since forever and no one knows if it will ever release or not. 

Priyanka Chopra

After producing the Marathi movie Ventilator, Priyanka Chopra backed the Punjabi film, Sarvann and the Bhojpuri movie Bam Bam Bol Raha Hai Kashi.  The actress wants to expand her production house and finance movies of other languages too. 

Dia Mirza

Dia Mirza has only produced two films till date. They are Love Breakups Zindagi and Bobby Jasoos. Unfortunately for her, both the movies didn't fare well at the box-office. 

Shilpa Shetty 


Dishkiyaoon, the 2014 film, which starred Harman Baweja and Sunny Deol, was produced by Shilpa Shetty. She has not financed any movie after that and going by this film's fate, we don't blame her.
