Anushka Sharma lashes out at media


Anushka Sharma lashes out at media for the false claim made by the media on her second home production, ‘Phillauri’ production. It was reported that 'Phillauri' was produced by her cricketer beau Virat Kohli. Anushka fumed over the false report surrounding ‘Phillauri’ production and released a long statement dismissing the false claim and clearly specified that ‘Phillauri’ was produced by FOX STAR STUDIOS & CLEAN SLATE FILMS.

She wrote: “Phillauri is produced by FOX STAR STUDIOS & CLEAN SLATE FILMS. So those TV channels/newspapers/websites claiming anything else, please check FACTS, practice responsible journalism & have some shame.”

She went on to add, “By making such bogus claims and validating this rubbish by your so called ‘source’, not only are you disrespecting me and the hard work I have put in over the years to be where I am, but also, all the people who have worked on this film.”

"Putting to rest some rumours that have been doing the rounds for some days now Phillauri is produced by FOX STAR STUDIOS & CLEAN SLATE FILMS. So those TV channels/newspapers/websites claiming anything else, please check FACTS, practice responsible journalism & have some shame. By making such bogus claims and validating this rubbish by your so called 'source', not only are you disrespecting me & the hard work I have put in over the years to be where I am, but also, all the people who have worked on this film. Freedom of press comes with accountability & your fake sources are never accounted for.

I have always led my career with dignity & often chose to maintain a dignified silence on many untruthful stories, that doesn't mean you can take my silence as my weakness and say anything without checking with me or my team!

For someone who makes a living out of maligning people, it must definitely be hard to believe that a person can stand on their own feet and do something meaningful with their life.

And next time these same people come wanting to talk about 'women empowerment' and 'women in films today' do remember this is what you do to 'women in films' who are trying to change the narrative & take charge of their own careers.

This must be just another story for you but it's someone's life you are toying with.

I am more than capable of producing and promoting my own films. Thank you."

‘Phillauri’ trailer was released a few days ago and it was hugely liked. Anushka plays a bride ghost and it also stars Suraj Sharma in the male lead.
