Anaarkali of Aarah: Swara Bhaskar is sizzling in the ‘scintillating’ posters


Actress Swara Bhaskar will be next seen in a totally different avatar in her upcoming film ‘Anaarkali of Aarah’. After the impressive teaser released a week ago, the official posters of the film have been unveiled now.

The posters are very colourful with the acclaimed actress donning a bright lehenga-choli, decked up with bangles, kamarband, jhumkas, tikka and paranda. In the bottom, silhouettes of people cheering can be seen. In another poster, Swara is seen sitting on a decorated bicycle with a loudspeaker, as a man looks out of a window behind her.

Filmmaker Karan Johar shared the posters on his Twitter timeline on Monday, February 20. “Here is the scintillating poster of @Anaarkaliaarah @ReallySwara U go girl Congrats @avinashonly @SandiipKapur releases 24th March '17,” Karan wrote.

“Presenting @ReallySwara in and as the fiesty #AnarkaliofAarah @Anaarkaliaarah @avinashonly @SandiipKapur @PromodomeGroup Congrats guys!” he captioned another poster.

Karan also tweeted, “Well done @ReallySwara for constantly breaking ground!! 24th march is the date guys! For this new world and engaging film!!!”

Earlier, Swara’s good friend and colleague Sonam Kapoor launched the teaser of the film. Both the ladies have worked together in ‘Raanjhanaa’ and ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, and will be next seen together in ‘Veere Di Wedding’, which also stars Kareena Kapoor.

‘Anaarkali of Aarah’ will see Swara in the titular role of an erotic singer who hails from Arrah in Bihar and is popular for her songs with double meanings. She is a successful star performer, but her life takes a turn after confrontation of a powerful man of the region. How she fights the misogynist beliefs of the society, forms the crux of the film.

Produced by Priya and Sandiip Kapur, written and directed by Avinash Das, the film is set to release on March 24.
