Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri is one film which garnered a lot of attention since it was announced. Starring Diljit Dosanjh, Suraj Sharma and Nidhi Bisht in important roles, Phillauri is woven around the love story of Shashi. After her love story remained unfinished in her life, Shashi turned into a ghost, though a friendly one. The trailer of this Anshai Lal directorial received a thumbs up from the viewers, adding to the buzz of the film.
This movie has been in news for many reasons and the unique way that Anushka Sharma promoted it was one of them. One of the antics which she employed was photoshopping Shashi’s photo on iconic events. This led to #ShashiWasThere hashtag gain immense popularity and Anushka being present almost everywhere. She explained the Oscars goof-up and why Dharmendra didn’t ride pillion to Amitabh Bachchan in Sholay‘s song Ye Dosti. Shashi was at the moon and also in the film Life Of Pi where Suraj Sharma’s character was stuck in the ocean. All these images tickled the funny bones of people and took Phillauri’s promotions to a new high.
