Anushka Sharma couldn’t have asked for more. The petite actress, who was missing from the first poster of her next release ‘Patiala House’, has now managed to get into a new one, thanks to the success of her last movie ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’.
A movie about a 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 the 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 finalised 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 was hugely successful," said 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."
Director Nikhil added, "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."
The movie hits screens Feb 11.(IANS)
