1. Anushka ‘Phillauri’ Sharma Could’ve Prevented the Oscars Goof-Up!
Anushka Sharma decided to make the most of the Oscars ‘Best Picture’ goof-up. The actress, who plays a friendly ghost in upcoming film, Phillauri photoshopped herself at the Oscars like this!
The Oscars had an awkward moment on stage when actors Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway accidentally got the wrong card (read: that of Best Actress), and they announced La La Land the winner of ‘Best Picture’ when it was actually Moonlight that won.
Well, Anushka, that was what a clever marketing strategy.
Phillauri also stars Udta Punjab actor, Diljit Dosanjh and is set to release on 24 March.

It is not like a typical commercial film that is going to cater to everybody’s taste and sensibilities, he caters to a certain section of audience and that is why some critics have revered it and called it a piece of art. Vishal Bhardwaj is known for that. So when you do a film like that, with a lot of love for cinema, the actors get lot of appreciation. Some films are beyond box office collections.
