Anushka Sharma, you already know that one smart woman in Bollywood and you’ll agree with us when you watch the first look of her upcoming film Phillauri. The official trailer of the much-awaited film was launched today and we just cannot stay calm. Anushka is a ghost or should we say, an angel in disguise. Well, she is Shashi, a beautiful spirit, and her character is going to stay with you for a long time.
The 2-minute-55-seconds long trailer begins with Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi fame) being declared “maanglik’ and therefore needs to marry a tree (a common practice to ward off evil forces).
However, a ghost stuck in the tree (Anushka Sharma) begins haunting him, claiming she was on that tree and hence, he is now married to her.
As the trailer unwinds, we are sent back to shashi’s past-Diljit Dosanjh. The actor, who shot to fame in Bollywood with Udata Punjab, is a total treat eye. He is a singer in the film and his love story with Anushka is nothing less than Romeo-Juliet, Sohni-Mahiwal. Anushka tells him that his voice has a magic that can do wonders in the world, and for the same, the actors set out on a journey. But something happens that leaves Shashi heartbroken and with incomplete desires in that life. What happens next? Well, to unwind that you have to wait for the film to release.
Anushka’s choice of films continues to impress us. Even as a debutante in the field of a producer, the actor chose a strong concept like NH10, which shook the Bollywood industry. After entertaining us with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and sultan in 2016 sees like Anushka wants to retain her title as smart actor and producer with Phillauri too.
Is Phillauri a love story or a comic satire on the superstitions? well, we leave you with the confusion. Set in Phillaur, Punjab, the film has been directed by Anshai Lal, and will hit the theaters on March 24.
