Phillauri Trailer Crosses 2.5 Million Views

c396o0tvyaaij-rThere’s comedy, romance and a hook in Phillauri trailer, the response to which has left the film’s makers content and excited. The trailer was unveiled on Monday morning to a positive response as Bollywood buffs found the idea of actress Anushka Sharma playing a ghost very unique and interesting.

Anushka, who has also produced the movie with her brother Karnesh Sharma under their banner Clean Slate Films, said over phone from Mumbai: “We are very ecstatic. When you put out a film like this, you don’t know how people will receive it because you’re trying to tell a story differently.

“So when such a response comes through… It’s great. We are grateful with the response, and we are very charged up with the rest of the promotions, thanks to this amazing start.”

The trailer begins with Suraj Sharma — yes, the Life of Pi actor — in a very different persona as a NRI Punjabi boy who is made to marry a tree before he marries his fiance as he is ‘maanglik’. The humour comes in when the ghost who lived on the tree starts trailing him.

Anushka’s histrionics as the friendly and entertaining ghost look endearing, and the VFX adds to the look. In a jocular tone, the actress said: “I thought playing human was too mainstream… Insaan se bore ho gayi (Got bored playing a human). But… this ghost is different and fun.”

Gradually, the trailer gives out that the ghost has a back story of unrequited love from a bygone era. And her love interest — a man who sings really well — is played by the multi-talented Diljit Dosanjh, who is happy to be a part of this “different” story.

“This film’s story was very different. I am a singer in real life, but not the kind of singer that I play in the movie. It was wonderful to be in this film. Punjab is looking very beautiful in Phillauri,” Diljit said, when asked about the picturesque hinterlands of Punjab that the trailer gives a dekko at.

From the trailer, one cannot tell much about what leads Anushka’s character to become a ghost. But that was the whole idea, says the film’s director Anshai Lal, who is making his feature film debut.

Things Hollywood Stars Think About Steamy Scenes

24199_L_Zac-Taylor-steamy-sceneMelbourne: (ANI) Hollywood actors, like Jennifer Aniston, Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman and Hugh Grant, have shed light on what they do to prepare for a sex scene. The former `Friends` star has claimed that sex scenes can be nerve racking, but unavoidable so the best thing to do is keep them under 30 seconds, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Mila Kunis has revealed that she was extremely self-conscious about her body, and while shooting `Friends With Benefits` with Justin Timberlake, she got through the steamy scenes “by keeping it fun and through rehearsing”. Kate Winslet confessed that she relied on memories of her love scene with Leonardo DiCaprio in `Titanic` for her topless love scene in `Iris`.

While Hugh Jackman asserted that having an understading partner, like his wife and actress Deborra-Lee Furness, makes it easier to do such scenes, Hugh Grant admitted that he doesn`t fear sex scenes, but actually enjoys them and finds them extremely arousing.

And Salma Hayek said that she struggles with love scenes because she keeps thinking about her family seeing her nude.
