Anushka Sharma’s first home production, was appreciated for its brave take on the social condition of women in Haryana and Punjab in India. Her film won the audience and critics alike, and now the actress is ready with her second venture, Phillauri.
Directed by Anshai Lal, the trailer starts with Suraj Sharma, the Life of Pi actor, who has come to Punjab to get married. However a local priest says he will have to get married to a tree first in order to combat the bad setting of his stars. The tree happens to be the home of Shashi’s spirit, played by Anushka Sharma. Shashi’s spirit claims that since she resides in the tree, Suraj has unwittingly married her. What follows is a fun ride of events that trace back to Shashi's life before she became a ghost.
Also starring Punjabi singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh, Phillauri is directed by Anshai Lal and produced by Fox Star Studios and Anushka Sharma, Karnesh Sharma under the banner of Clean Slate Films. The film releases in cinemas worldwide on 24th March 2017.
