The first trailer of Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh starrer Phillauri is out.
Anushka Sharma is back with her second production venture Phillauri. March 24 is the scheduled date of release. The first trailer has just been released and people are going gaga over it. The film’s star cast includes Diljit Dosanjh, Suraj Sharma, Mehreen Pirzada and Anushka in lead roles. It’s directed by debutant Anshai Lal and is written by Anvita Dutt. The film’s shoot had begun on Baisakhi last year and the shooting wrapped in June. Co-produced by Fox Star Studios and Clean Slate Films – Anushka’s production banner with brother Karnesh Sharma Phillauri is a romantic-horror set in Phillaur.
The trailer unveiled to a positive response as Bollywood buffs found the idea of actress Anushka Sharma playing a ghost very unique and interesting.The trailer starts on a good note but later goes into the cliched territory of those old school comic horrors, where a ghost returns to the world of humans for an unfulfilled desire. The trailer has a few funny moments in the initial half but as mentioned above goes into the cliched, done to death territory i.e in order to get rid of the ghost you have to help it fulfill its last wish. A similar story was seen in Amitabh Bachchan’s Bhoothnath or even Shah Rukh Khan’s Chamatkar. However, the plot is clearly a rip-off of Johnny Depp’s Corpse Bride.
Diljit Dosanjh who made the female population crazy for him with Udta Punjab is seen in a uber hot avatar in the trailer, a certain treat for the eyes for his fan following.
Anushka Sharma’s first home production was NH 10.
