Highlights

  • Phillauri also stars Suraj Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh
  • Phillauri is Anushka's second project as a producer
  • Phillauri stars Anushka as Shashi, a ghost bride
Anushka Sharma is all set to play the role of a... umm... a ghost in her much talked-about film Phillauri, which is scheduled for tomorrow. Phillauri stars Anushka as ghost bride Shashi, who accidentally gets married to an NRI played by Life Of Pi actor Suraj Sharma. The trailer and teasers of the film reveal that before Shashi became a ghost, she was engaged to a sufi singer from the rural lands of Punjab - a character played by Diljit Dosanjh. Anushka Sharma's Phillauri appears to have a melancholy undercurrent with the film shuttling between snippets portraying Shashi's equation with her accidental husband and Shashi's days of romance with her fiance.
IRL, Anushka is more popularly known as Shashi these days, for which one can only blame her Instagram posts. Shashi, a friendly ghost, is clearly an explorer at heart and has revealed some of the several locations she has visited so far on Anushka's social media. Anushka also roped in Shah Rukh Khan, her co-star of films like Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Jab Tak Hai Jaan, for some promotional duty with Shashi visiting him at his Mumbai residence.
 
 
 

Meanwhile, here's the list of places Shashi was present at but nobody got to know.
