Here's why Anushka Sharma chose to play a ghost in Phillauri

Bollywood actor-producer Anushka Sharma who is playing a ghost bride in her second production Phillauri says it was fun to play a non-living character.

“It was fun to play a non-living character because normally we play characters which are in the flesh and its boring to portray a living character in each film. You should keep doing a different thing. I think I’ve represented the ghost community well,” she said in an interview on Tuesday.

The Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi actress ventured into production with 2015 thriller NH-10 and is now gearing up for her banner’s (Clean Slate Films) next project Phillauri.

When asked about what she enjoys the most, the 28-year-old actress said, “I enjoy both. I have realised that when I have too many responsibilities on me, I perform better. Acting and producing both are very different things. Like when I am on set I just do my job and when I am producing a film I have to collaborate with ALL, right from the inception of a film. Both are going well for me.”

Anushka who seems to be quite happy with the encouraging response from the industry said, “I feel very happy when the audience and industry people say good things about Phillauri.
