Anushka Sharma has always been a woman of substance and she’s proved it yet again with the trailer of her upcoming film Phillauri. While a majority of the media and masses took the trailer as a symbol of her creative excellence, some questioned her ability to be an independent woman. In response to such rumors, Anushka Sharma released a statement shutting everyone down once and for all.
The actress took it to Twitter to release the following statement:
“Putting to rest some rumors that have been doing the rounds for some days now pic.twitter.com/bqS498U1tC Phillauri is produced by Fox Star Studios and Clean State Films. So those TV channels/newspapers/websites claiming anything else, please check facts, practice responsible journalism & have some shame. By making such bogus claims and validating this rubbish by your so called ‘source’, not only are you disrespecting me & the hard work I have put in over the years to be where I am, but also, all the people who have worked on this film. Freedom of press comes with accountability & your fake sources are never accounted for.
I have always led my career with dignity & often chose to maintain a dignified silence on many untruthful stories, that doesn’t mean you can take my silence as my weakness and say anything without checking with me or my team!
For someone who makes a living out of maligning people, it must definitely be hard to believe that a person can stand on their own feet and do something meaningful with their life.
And next time these same people come wanting to talk about ‘women empowerment’ and ‘women in films today’ do remember this is what you do to ‘women in films’ who are trying to change the narrative & take charge of their own careers.
This must be just another story for you but it’s someone’s life you are toying with.
I am more than capable of producing and promoting my own films. Thank you ??”
More power to you Anushka!
