Fox Star Studios and Anushka Sharma’s home production, ‘Phillauri’, will release on 24th March 2017. Shot extensively in the picturesque and colorful state of Punjab, the film stars Anushka Sharma, Diljit Dusanjh, Suraj Sharma and Mehreen Pirzada. The shoot had begun on Baisakhi earlier this year in a start-to-finish schedule that wrapped up by June end.
Co-produced by Clean Slate Films (Anushka’s production banner with brother Karnesh Sharma) and Fox Star Studios, ‘Phillauri’ is a fun-filled romantic Hindi film set in Phillaur, Punjab. Directed by debutant Anshai Lal and written by Anvita Dutt, the film has a unique premise- it took almost 100 years, a crazy Punjabi wedding and rank strangers to complete this love story.
“High concept Bollywood films are being universally loved by audiences and critics and ‘Phillauri’, our fun, romantic film falls perfectly under this bracket. It has a unique concept that hasn’t been explored before, has the perfect balance of romance and comedy, a fresh exciting pairing and of course Anushka Sharma, who has won hearts with her much loved performances film after film. All this makes ‘Phillauri’ an out-an-out entertainer that cuts across all age groups. We are excited to announce that the film will release on 24th March 2017,” said the producers.
