Anushka Sharma has given a strong message on social media to all those who claimed that her alleged boyfriend Virat Kohli had played the biggest role in her second home production Phillauri.
The 29-year-old actress expressed her annoyance by saying. “I am more than capable of producing and promoting my own films.”
She said. “Putting to rest some rumors that have been doing the rounds for some days now Phillauri is produced by Fox Star Studios & Clean Slate Films.”
Some of the sources recently informed that, “Virat loved the script and he was involved with the film right from the beginning. He has also invested some money in this film, as he wanted to extend his support for a movie that is so high on content. He will be promoting the film in his own way”.
Rubbishing the claims the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil star wrote. “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.”
She added. “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,” concluded Anushka.
