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."
Phillauri stars Anushka Sharma, Suraj Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh and the film is directed by Anshai Lal. For the first time, Anushka Sharma is playing the role a ghost in the film.
