The Phillauri director Anshai Lal says that having a big star in the film helps to reach a bigger audience. He said in a recent interview, “As Anushka is part of the film, I am in a way confident about the fate of the film. When you have an A-list actor things become easier in terms of reach. It’s a blessing to be working with these talented actors. When you are sure about the script, actors respect it and then things just flow. They have the experience to elevate the material to another level. It is easier to communicate when you have a fresh casting as it doesn’t have the baggage of an actor doing certain kind of roles, you don’t have to break stereotypes.”
