I can do any role as an actress: AnuShkA ShARmA

Posted on 15 February 2017 by admin

Actress Anushka Sharma, who has portrayed characters ranging from a betrayed lover to a wrestler in movies, says she can play any role if the right opportunities come her way.

“As an actress, I think I can do anything, but it depends on what kind of opportunities you get. I am lucky in that way. I have been given the kind of opportunities and done those kinds of roles. People have liked those portrayals. I think that is more important,” Anushka said here.

“As an actor, you constantly try to do more diverse work because, ultimately, you can only impress people with your roles. The characters that we portray on screen, people fall in love with that. Therefore, we all look for good and different characters and I am happy that I got those opportunities in my career,” added the actress-producer who will now be seen in ‘Phillauri’.

Her first production was the gritty thriller ‘NH10′, and now she is coming up with her second outing ‘Phillauri’, which is a quirky tale featuring Anushka as a ghost named Shashi.

While asked about choosing an out-of-the-box subject, Anushka said, “I think the idea came out because Karnesh (her brother Karnesh Sharma) and I wanted to tell a different story and present a new idea as well. That is why ‘NH10′ was made, which was well-received by people.”

“Similarly, the ‘Phillauri’ trailer is getting a good response in all aspects. The vision is to create good content and introduce new talent. It’s a very relatable character. I have tried to be honest playing the role. Finally, it depends on the audience how they react to the film.”

The film is directed by Anshai Lal, and also features Diljit Dosanjh, Suraj Sharma and Mehreen Pirzada. It is scheduled for release on March 24.

Varun, Alia get colourful in ‘Badri Ki Dulhania’

Posted on 08 February 2017 by admin

The title track of director Shashank Khaitan’s Badrinath Ki Dulhania is a tribute to Holi. Interestingly, Badri Ki Dulhania is also the first Holi number for the lead actors, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, though the latter had a montage scene of the festival in producer Karan Johar’s earlier offering, 2 States.

Composed by Tanishq Bagchi, penned by Shabbir Ahmed and choreographed by Ganesh Acharya, the peppy track gives a feel of what the movie is all about. Picturised on a set specially built for the purpose, the song, which releases today, has the vibe of nautanki in small towns and how people come together to cele brate the festival.

Shashank says, “We’ve tried to treat the festival in a novel way -it’s not restricted to using pichkaris and throwing colours. We have used colours as part of the cho reography , and there is a lot more dancing in our song.”

‘Phillauri’ team ecstatic over response to entertaining trailer

Posted on 08 February 2017 by admin

There’s comedy, romance and a hook in “Phillauri” trailer, the response to which has left the film’s makers content and excited.

The trailer was unveiled on Monday morning to a positive response as Bollywood buffs found the idea of actress Anushka Sharma playing a ghost very unique and interesting.

Anushka, who has also produced the movie with her brother Karnesh Sharma under their banner Clean Slate Films, told IANS over phone from Mumbai: “We are very ecstatic. When you put out a film like this, you don’t know how people will receive it because you’re trying to tell a story differently.

“So when such a response comes through… It’s great. We are grateful with the response, and we are very charged up with the rest of the promotions, thanks to this amazing start.”

The trailer begins with Suraj Sharma — yes, the “Life of Pi” actor — in a very different persona as a NRI Punjabi boy who is made to marry a tree before he marries his fiance as he is ‘maanglik’. The humour comes in when the ghost who lived on the tree starts trailing him.

Anushka’s histrionics as the friendly and entertaining ghost look endearing, and the VFX adds to the look.

In a jocular tone, the actress said: “I thought playing human was too mainstream… Insaan se bore ho gayi (Got bored playing a human). But… this ghost is different and fun.”

Gradually, the trailer gives out that the ghost has a back story of unrequited love from a bygone era. And her love interest — a man who sings really well — is played by the multi-talented Diljit Dosanjh, who is happy to be a part of this “different” story.

“This film’s story was very different. I am a singer in real life, but not the kind of singer that I play in the movie. It was wonderful to be in this film. Punjab is looking very beautiful in ‘Phillauri,” Diljit told IANS, when asked about the picturesque hinterlands of Punjab that the trailer gives a dekko at.

From the trailer, one cannot tell much about what leads Anushka’s character to become a ghost. But that was the whole idea, says the film’s director Anshai Lal, who is making his feature film debut.

“The idea was to leave it ambiguous. There’s a lot of freshness in the movie — people have appreciated Diljit-Anushka’s pairing in the film, the VFX is being appreciated a lot in the trailer. Basically, what we wanted out of the trailer, we have got it,” Lal said.

Written by Anvita Dutt, “Phillauri”, releasing on March 24, is produced by Fox Star Studios and Clean Slate Films.
