Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh’s upcoming release Phillauri will hit the screens tomorrow. The makers had already recovered a good amount from pre-release recovery. The film which is produced by Fox Star, is likely to be a profitable venture.
Fox Star Studios is on an excellent run this year. They have delivered the two clean hits of the year, Jolly LLB 2 and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. Phillauri can turn out to be the hat trick of success.
The CEO of Fox Star Studio, Vijay Singh said in an official statement. “The film’s cost was absolutely correct and with us recovering Rs 12 crore already from satellite and music before the release of the film, Phillauri is a profitable venture. We are now eager to see the reaction of audiences and we are hopeful that they will embrace the film.
“It’s a special film for us after back to back successes with Jolly LLB 2 and Badrinath Ki Dulhania, we are excited to be releasing Phillauri – a high concept film with a big heart. We were bowled over with the concept of the film and immediately decided to back it”.
