Anushka Sharma couldn't have asked for more. The petite actress, who was missing from the first poster of her next outing

Patiala House

, has now managed to get into a new one, thanks to the success of her last outing

Band Baaja Baaraat


A movie about father-son relationship,

Patiala House

stars Akhsay Kumar in the male lead with Rishi Kapoor in a pivotal role. The movie has been inspired by England cricket team's first Sikh player Monty Panesar, where Akshay has been shown as a British citizen who sacrifices his dream of being a pace bowler for his autocratic father's ideals.


"The filmmakers wanted to portray the same in their first key art poster for their audiences. So they finalized that the poster will feature Rishi Kapoor and Akshay Kumar in order to give an insight about the film and the relationship they share. The poster was all set to be launched but then

Band Baaja Baaraat

released and saw a huge success," said a statement from the film's publicist.

"So after the success of

Band Baaja Baaraat

, the makers of

Patiala House

wanted to feature Anushka in the poster as well," it further read.

Director Nikhil Advani also echoed the same. "Anushka is a great actress and we are happy that she is part of

Patiala House

. She has proved her talent and charm in her recent hit as well... we were always planning on multiple posters which are out for the audiences," said Advani.
