MUMBAI (Web Desk) – While cricketer Virat Kohli is preparing for upcoming T20 Asia Cup, his former girlfriend Anushka Sharma has announced she will co-produce and star in romantic film ‘Phillauri’.
The 27-year-old actress is co-producing the film with Fox Star Studios, the Times of India reported.
She will be sharing screen space with singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh and Suraj Sharma, of ‘Life of Pi’ fame.
The movie, directed by debutant Anshai Lal, has been tagged as an uncommon romantic film set in Phillaur, Punjab.
“Phillauri has a unique premise. It took almost 100 years, a crazy Punjabi wedding and rank strangers to complete this love story, and that’s the crux of the film,” said Sharma.
The actress made her debut as a producer through her Clean Slate Films with last year’s much-acclaimed crime drama ‘NH 10’. The film goes on floors in April this year.
Virat Kohli and Anuskha Sharma announced their separation earlier this month, followed by weeks of uncertainty.
The former couple will focus on their respective careers.
