||DILJIT-DOSANJH and ANUSHKA-SHARMA
Anushka Sharma's ode to girl power in NH10 (her debut as producer) won the deserving accolades. The actor producer has now joined hands with Fox Star Studios to produce PHILLAURI – an uncommon romantic film.
Set in Phillaur, the movie stars Punjabi heartthrob Diljit Dosanjh – popular singer and lead of Punjabi cinema's biggest hits – PUNJAB 1984, SARDAARJI, who plays the lead of this fun filled love story along with LIFE OF PI fame Suraj Sharma.
Speaking on this project, Anushka explained, “PHILLAURI has a unique premise. It took almost 100 years, a crazy Punjabi wedding and rank strangers to complete this love story, and that's the crux of the film. Now what could possibly take a100 years? And how does this fit into this story? That's the bit that you need to keep guessing! With loads of humor, fun and engaging drama happening all throughout, this film promises smart, wholesome entertainment. We at Clean Slate are excited to co-produce this special film with Fox Star Studios.”
Directed by first timer Anshai Lal, PHILLAURI will be Diljit Dosanjh second Bollywood outing. Diljit will be seen as a tough cop in UDTA PUNJAB opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan.
Vijay Singh, CEO of Fox Star Studios says, "It is our pleasure to work with Clean Slate Films on PHILLAURI - a film we are sure will touch everyone's heart!! Anushka Sharma is a phenomenal actress and has proven that she is a producer par excellence with her brave first film. We are thrilled to be working with her."
The film goes on floors in April this year.
