Pari teaser: Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli wedding is well over and so is the honeymoon period and the duo are back to business.
Pari teaser: Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli wedding is well over and so is the honeymoon period and the duo are back to business. While Kohli may have flopped in the Test against South Africa, Anushka Sharma is unlikely to do so, if the Pari teaser is anything to go by. Bollywood’s association with horror themes is not a recent phenomenon. Encashing on this horror obsession of Bollywood and the cine goers, Anushka Sharma’s home production film Pari releases on March 2. Pari which was scheduled for a February 9 release has now been shifted to a later date in order to avert its clash with Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary and Luv Ranjan’s Sonu Ke Titu Ke Sweety. The release date for the film was announced with a short teaser featuring Anushka Sharma in a never seen before avatar. The film is being helmed by first time director Prosit Roy and stars Parambrata Chatterjee, Ritabhari Chakraborty and Rajat Kapoor. The first teaser not only spooks it also promises to give you sleepless nights but at the same time manages to build the desired curiosity. To give you just an inkling of the effect of the teaser – Anushka’s scared and bruised face stays with you even when the screen fades to black.
Her company, Clean Slate Productions, had previously made NH10 and Phillauri. While NH10 was a critically acclaimed flick, Phillauri turned out to be a dud at the box office. The expectation from this film is a tad bit more since over the years the actress has proved her acting prowess and after a brush with box office duds like Phillauri and Jab Harry Met Sejal, even Anushka would want to make come back with a bang.
The highlight of the film is surely the spooky element and with actors of that stature featuring, it surely is no Tom Dick Harry film we are talking about. Pari which has now become a Holi release will share screens with Hindi films Drive and Hate Story 4 and the Hollywood movie Red Sparrow.
After the release date of Padmavat has been rescheduled, all the films have undergone a shuffle in terms of their release date in order to avoid clashes with each other. Padmavat now clashes with R. Balki’s Pad Man and hits the silver screen on January 25.
