Phulkari for Phillauri - Anushka’s Special Bond with Threads of Punjab
Anushka Sharma is an avid admirer of local handlooms and Indian craftsmen as well as their globally renowned, fine karigari. Fond of beautiful local work in fabrics and crafts, Anushka found a special place for Phulkari, the colorful, vibrant threadwork that is integral to Punjabi culture.
With her love for Phulkari reflecting in her outfits for her forthcoming family entertaining Phillauri, Anushka took it upon herself to source and find the best local fabrics and handloom work for the film.
Says a source from the film’s set, “Anushka actually bought a whole lot of fabric from a local market in Punjab while shooting for Phillauri. Mehreen Pirzada’s mother is well versed with this area and she helped organise the best quality Phulkari fabrics and also a local silversmith’s beautiful pieces.”
