Anushka told IANS: “It’s our third film together. I share a very special equation with him because he was my first actor. I am very comfortable with Shah Rukh. Imtiaz is someone whom I’ve always wanted to work with. Jab We Met is the reason why I have become an actress.”

“To work with the same director, is a great feeling. It’s been a good experience and it’s a love story,” she added.

The actor is also producing her second film Phillauri. She says it’s a big risk to invest money in a film.

She said: “It’s difficult. It’s a big risk. You know it’s not a money generating thing for you, especially when you are a new producer. So, for me and my brother it’s just to put the project together.”

“If you are an actor yourself, you are not a liability on it. You are not taking too much money. You have to find means to save money so that the project doesn’t get affected.”

Directed by debutante Anshai Lal, Phillauri features Anushka Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh and Suraj Sharma.
