2016 has been a lucky year for Anushka Sharma as she had two blockbuster films namely Sultan with Salman Khan and Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. And now the actor is prepping up for her next film Phillauri, which has already started creating buzz about itself. The film, which is also Anushka’s second home production after NH10, was scheduled for a release on March 31st, 2017 but now there is a change in the release date. Anushka broke the news herself.
The Sultan lady took to her official account on Twitter and wrote, “Guyssssss… Phillauri Ki release date : March 24, 2017! Likh ke Rakho abhi se… Bohot maza aney wala hai…” Shot in the picturesque locations of Punjab, the film, went on floors on Baisakhi earlier this year and was wrapped up by June. Co-produced by Fox Star Studios and Clean Slate Films — Anushka’s production banner with brother Karnesh Sharma , Phillauri is a fun-filled romantic Hindi film. Apart from Anushka, Phillauri will also star Diljit Dosanjh and Life Of Pi fame actor Suraj Sharma.

Earlier, Anushka made her debut as a producer with NH10, which released in 2015 under the direction of debutant Navdeep Singh. NH10 was a story about a young couple whose road trip goes awry after an encounter with a group of violent criminals. Part of the story was reported to be loosely adapted from an honour killing case of 2007. The film and Sharma’s performance garnered critical acclaim, and the film emerged as a sleeper hit. NH10 is also being remade in Tamil as Garjanai starring South actor Trisha, which is scheduled for 2017 release. Will Phillauri recreate the same magic for Anushka? We have our fingers crossed.
