What the Phillauri trailer tells you about Anushka Sharma!

Last updated on: February 06, 2017 18:00 IST

Anushka Sharma has proved she has the business acumen as well as the nerve to produce a film that steps out of the mainstream.

After the gory NH-10, her second production, Phillauri, looks like a sweet romance gone wrong.

The trailer, set in today's times, tells a story of a ghost, played by Anushka.

It has quite a few ha-ha moments, but you also know it will not end up like Amitabh Bachchan's Bhootnath, thanks to the romance angle.

Anushka 'accidentally' gets married to a youngster (played by Life Of Pi's Suraj Sharma), who's getting ready for his wedding... to someone else.

There's a flashback tale: Phillauri has a love story like Mirzya-Saheba, with Diljit Dosanjh as the love of her life. 

The film's title comes from Diljit's character called Phillauri, who is a singer and lyricist. He probably resides in a town called Phillaur near Jalandhar.

He bids goodbye to Anushka and is not seen again.

What happens to this doomed couple?

How does Anushka turn into a ghost who lives in a tree? 

These questions haunt you, just like Anushka haunts the characters in the film. 

Phillauri will release on March 24.
