After grabbing attention for its interesting trailer, Anushka Sharma's upcoming movie 'Phillauri' is once again making the headlines. But this time for because of Virat Kohli.
There have been reports that Anushka's rumoured beau Virat is co-producing her home production 'Phillauri'.
However, Sharma has vehemently refuted Virat's involvement in the movie and lashed out at the media for spreading such rumours.
The actress asserted that apart from her banner, 'Phillauri is being co-produced by Fox Star Hindi.
Anushka took it to Instagram to clear the air on the rumours about Virat's connection with 'Phillauri' and shared an official statement.
"Putting to rest some rumours that have been doing the rounds for some days now. 'Phillauri' is produced by Fox Star Studios and Clean Slate Films. So those TV channels/newspapers/ websites claiming anything else, please check FACTS, practice responsible journalism and have some shame," the actress wrote in an Instagram post.
Anushka said such reports take away from hard work she has put in for years and that she is very much capable of handling her own films.
"By making such bogus claims and validating this rubbish by your so-called 'source', not only are you disrespecting me and 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.
"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," she concluded.
Interestingly, it has been a while when reports of Anushka and Virat's engagement too took over social media with a storm after the lovebirds were spotted holidaying in Rishikesh.
However, they later rubbished the reports of their engagement.
