Those of you up to date with the Indian music scene have surely been grooving to Diljit Dosanjh’s absolute banger ‘Do You Know’ for the last few months, and you’ll be glad to know he’s got a new film coming out!
After the controversy surrounding the drug-fuelled Udta Punjab last year, Dosanjh has turned his talents back to something a little more traditional.
You guys might not be too familiar with the concept of manglik, but your granny would be able to tell you that when someone is born when Mars is at a particular astrological configuration, their romantic relationships are supposedly cursed. This film, Phillauri, follows the story of Kanan (Suraj Sharma), a manglik, who has to undergo a marriage to a tree in order to negate the effects of the unfortunate circumstances of his birth.
What Kanan doesn’t expect is that this tree contains a ghost - the spirit of a woman called Shashi (Anushka Sharma) - who he is now married to! The film follows two love stories: one between Kanan and Anu (Mehreen Pirzada), the girl he wants to marry, the other between Shashi and Phillauri (Diljit Dosanjh), the mysterious lover from her past.
The directorial debut of Anshai Lal, this rom-com is based on the classic Corpse Bride, but with way more singing and dancing! Phillaur, Punjab, both past and present, provides the colourful backdrop to what is sure to be a huge hit!
Phillauri is released in cinemas March 24th.
