Anushka Sharma has slammed rumours that her
alleged boyfriend Virat Kohli has invested in her upcoming film
Phillauri. She is upset that, on one hand the media talks about
issues of women empowerment and on the other, gives importance to
unwanted rumours. She said, “This is what you do to 'women in
films' who are trying to change the narrative & take charge of
their own careers”.
In a statement, Anushka set the record straight that Phillauri
is produced by Fox Star Hindi and her home banner Clean Slate Films
and the film has nothing to do with Virat Kohli.
She said, “I have always led my career with dignity and often
chose to maintain a dignified silence on many untruthful stories,
that doesn't mean you can take my silence as my weakness and say
anything without checking with me or my team. I am more than
capable of producing and promoting my own films. Thank you."
