Fox Star Studios and Anushka Sharma’s home production, Phillauri, which went on floors, has finally wrapped up its last leg of shoot. Co-produced by Clean Slate Films (Anushka’s production banner with brother Karnesh Sharma) and Fox Star Studios, Phillauri is a fun-filled romantic Hindi film set in Phillaur, Punjab. Directed by debutant Anshai Lal and written by Anvita Dutt, the film has a unique premise- it took almost 100 years, a crazy Punjabi wedding and rank strangers to complete this love story.
Speaking from the film’s set, Karnesh Sharma (of Clean Slate Films) said, “We have completed an exciting, at times exhausting yet fun shoot. We shot through the Punjab summer and explored some beautiful locations. Phillauri will now begin its post-production in Mumbai, and we are looking forward to the process.”
Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios said, “Phillauri is a story that has its heart in the right place. It has a lot of fun, superb music and loads of desi color. So far, the shoot has gone as we planned. Phillauri is a very special film for us. It is an entertaining film with a lot of soul that will touch everyone’s heart.”
Tweeting about the wrap Anushka posted saying, “Film wrap for #Phillauri! Thank U every1 who worked on our 2nd production with so much love. its a happy-sad feeling”. Shot extensively in the picturesque state of Punjab, Phillauri stars Diljit Dusanjh, Suraj Sharma, Mehreen Pirzada and Anushka. The shoot had begun on Baisakhi earlier this year.
