Anushka Sharma made an impressive debut as a producer with Navdeep Singh's 'NH10'. Her next, 'Phillauri' under her home production, starring Suraj Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh has already gone on floors in Punjab. And now it looks like she is soon going to have one more film to her credit as a producer.
Recently we had revealed that 'Delhi Belly' writer Akshat Verma is all set to don the directorial hat with a quirky comedy flick which is likely to star Saif Ali Khan. Now as per the latest reports we hear that this movie will roll under Anushka Sharma's production house. A source close to them revealed, "Saif's impeccable comic timing landed him the role. He was in fine form in the dark comedy, Being Cyrus, and will be seen in a completely new avatar for Akshat's project too. It is a unique film, one that demands an actor of Saif's calibre." The rest of the has not been finalised yet.
The source further stated, "Anushka is heading a production house for the sheer love of films and to cater to the need for better content-driven projects. She will not be acting in all of her productions due to other commitments and the fact that she does not intend to be the face of every film. As a producer, the actress is focussing on bringing the best talents into the limelight."
Meanwhile Anushka will be next seen in 'Sultan' and 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'.
