The makers of Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh starrer Phillauri have already recovered Rs 12 crore from satellite and music rights even before the movie is released.

Anushka plays a 'friendly ghost’ in Phillauri that also stars Suraj Sharma.

The makers credit this to “controlled costs and recovery” of the movie, which has been made on a budget of Rs 21 crore, including marketing and distribution, read a statement from Fox Star Studios.

“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,” said Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios.

Phillauri is about a friendly ghost played by Anushka -- is directed by debutant Anshai Lal. It has been produced by Anushka’s home banner Clean Slate Films along with Fox Star Studios.

“This December, I will complete 9 years in film industry, I am shocked myself. I don’t feel like it’s been that long maybe that’s because earlier I was a new actor today I am a new producer so I am feeling like a struggler again, so it’s nice to be in the process of struggle. It keeps u grounded and does not let you fly,” Anushka told ANI.

Set in Phillaur, Punjab, the film which is releasing on Friday, is said to be a fun family entertainer. “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,” Singh added.
