The one-minute long teaser of Anushka Sharma’s upcoming film Pari is nothing less than hair-raising. While Anushka has been teasing the audience with screamer and posters, the latest teaser gives a full view into her never-seen before avatar.
From the teaser, Anushka appears to be possessed by some supernatural power. She seems to be both the victim and the perpetrator of the presence of this supernatural being or probably just something in her head. The teaser also features Parambrata Chatterjee, Ritabhari Chakraborty and Rajat Kapoor. It gets scarier with every second. Anushka Sharma aces this unsettling character and will make you cringe in your seat with those bloody blue eyes! It even scared the menacing Khilji Ranveer as well.
Pari is Anushka Sharma’s third film as a producer after NH10 and Phillauri. This was a bold step on Anushka’s part to venture into the genre of horror. A-listers usually don’t jump at the opportunity to do a horror film. The genre is still being explored in the country and not always appreciated, however, the Indian audience is attracted to Hollywood flicks like IT, Annabelle and The Conjuring. Judging from the teaser, Pari is here to do exactly that and prove that it is ‘not a fairytale’.
The film is directed by Prosit Roy. It was originally scheduled to release on February 9 but gave way to Akshay Kumar’s Padman. Now Pari will hit the theatres on March 2. Both Pari and Padman are co-produced by KriArj Entertainment. Anushka is also busy shooting for Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Zero helmed by Aanand L Rai. She has also begun prepping for Sharat Katariya’s Sui Dhaga opposite Varun Dhawan.
