Phillaur, the second production venture of Anushka Sharma, has already created a buzz after the release of a few songs.
Phillauri is a movie about an NRI Punjabi boy named Kanan played by Suraj Sharma, who returns to India to get married to his childhood sweetheart.
Kanan’s happiness is short lived after his horoscope predicts a premature end to the marriage caused by the death of the bride. The only solution that can ward off the omen is to marry a tree. For the love for Anu played by Mehreen Pirzada, Kanan agrees to marry the tree.
To his shock, he finds himself being trailed by an unearthly entity who is revealed as Shashi – the friendly spirit played by Anushka Sharma.
