After a successful NH 10, Anushka Sharma is back as an actress and producer with Phillauri. But the best part is we will get to see Diljit Dosanjh again on screen after Udta Punjab. He definitely left a mark in our minds and hearts. One other film that’s also releasing this week is Anaarkali Of Araah. Swara Bhaskar is seen in a bold avatar here. This Friday will be all about cheering women. Let us tell you a bit more about these films.
