Fox Star Studios and Anushka Sharma�۪s home production, ‘Phillauri’, will release on 31st March 2017. Shot extensively in the picturesque and colorful state of Punjab, the film stars Diljit Dosanjh, Suraj Sharma, Mehreen Pirzada and Anushka Sharma. The shoot had begun on Vaisakhi earlier this year in a start-to-finish schedule that wrapped up by June end.

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 & 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.

“We are very happy to announce the release date of Phillauri – a romantic, fun film with loads of desi colour. It will release on 31st March 2017. Currently, the post production work is in full swing and we are excited about the way the film is shaping up,” said the producers.
