Ever since the trailer of Phillauri has been out, the industry is swooning about the new concept and love story that Fox and Clean Slate have to present. We were more than excited for the release of this film and then came the news which disturbed not only the industry but the woman herself. Such became the condition that she had to voice her opinions. She took the help of social media to express her displeasure who according to their “sources” have some other fantasy story about the production matters of the movie, and that Anushka is seeking help from her friends.
Before we knew it, Anushka came with a solid reply to these newsmakers. Her note said,
“Phillauri is produced by FOX STAR INDIA and 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 ‘Woman Empowerment” and “woman in films today” do remember this is what you do. “woman 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.”
Well said, woman!
