New Delhi: It appears that Punjabi actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh is turning out to be the star attraction of Phillauri, which continues to rule the theatres in North India. Anushka Sharma's Phillauri, in which she stars and produces, has made a sum of Rs 15.25 crores in three days, reported trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Phillauri, which opened to theatres on March 24, has collected the highest box office score on Sunday with a single-day figure of Rs 6.03 crore, said Mr Adarsh. "Phillauri witnessed constant growth over the weekend. Performance in North India was the best due to Diljit Dosanjh's star power," Mr Adarsh tweeted on Monday.

He also provided a day-wide break-up of Phillauri's collection figures:
 
 

Diljit Dosanjh is merely two films old in Bollywood - 2016's drug drama Udta Punjab, co-starring Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor, was his maiden Bollywood film. However, Diljit has quite a number of Punjabi films on his resume, for example Ambarsariya, Mukhtiar Chadha, Sardaarji, Disco Singh and Saadi Love Story.

Meanwhile, Phillauri is Anushka's second film as a producer after 2015's NH10 and also her first stint at playing a ghost. Anushka's role as a ghost bride, named Shashi in Phillauri, has been widely loved by her colleague and fans alike. Shah Rukh Khan, with whom Anushka made her Bollywood debut in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, said: "Phillauri, the attempt at doing what you believe in." Actress Alia Bhatt said Anushka is 'an inspiration': "Phillauri is such a lovely unique film! With such honest performances from the whole cast! Anushka Sharma you are such an inspiration."

Phillauri also stars actors Suraj Sharma and Mehrene Kaur Pirzada in key roles. Directed by Anshai Lal, the film oscillates between two separate love stories, set 98 years apart.
