Mumbai, March 21 (IANS) Anushka Sharma got her first co-star Shah Rukh Khan to help her promote her forthcoming production “Phillauri” when she landed up at his residence Mannat here to ‘scare’ him.
Anushka plays a friendly ghost named Shashi in the forthcoming film, and to fit the theme, she made a promotional video with her “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi” and “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” co-star at his house.
“I am making this video because people nowadays have become a lot more superstitious and feel that they are surrounded by supernatural beings… There are no ghosts actually,” Shah Rukh says in the video, before getting interrupted by Anushka’s voice.
He poses as if he is scared, and then Anushka introduces herself as Shashi, saying she is a big fan of King Khan.
Shah Rukh then requests fans to watch the film, which will release on Friday.
Directed by Anshai Lal, “Phillauri” also features Diljit Dosanjh, Suraj Sharma and Mehreen Pirzada.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh and Anushka will return to the silver screen together with Imtiaz Ali’s “The Ring”.
