New Delhi: 

Highlights

  1. Twitter's equating the first look of Anushka to Monday, arranged marriage
  2. Anushka stars opposite Bengali actor Parambrata Chatterjee in Pari
  3. "Pari will be scarier than the Exorcist," read one of the tweets
The first look of Anushka Sharma from her new film Pari is the stuff of nightmares but Twitter is made of sterner stuff than we are. Instead of being chilled to the bone by the haunting image, Twitter (which is dead inside anyway) is churning out jokes. Irreverent social media wags are equating the arresting first look of Anushka to Monday, arranged marriage setups and more. The 29-year-old actress' previous film Phillauri, in which she played a ghost, was also invoked. Good thing Anushka Sharma has a sense of humour. Pari, which begins filming now, co-stars Bengali actor Parambrata Chatterjee and will be produced by Anushka. Here's a sample of the irreverence online:
 
 
 
 

Almost nothing is known of Pari but it appears to belong to the horror genre - or perhaps revenge? Anushka Sharma has explored both in her previous two productions, NH10 and Phillauri respectively - though the 'horror' in Phillauri belongs strictly in single quoted, being heavily diluted with satire.

Pari will be Anushka's first movie with Parambrata, whose Hindi film credits include Kahaani. Newcomer Prosit Roy will direct Pari.

Pari will be Anushka's second work-in-progress - she's also going to be filming Aanand L Rai's project in which Shah Rukh Khan plays a dwarf. SRK and Anushka also have a film coming up in two months - Jab Harry Met Sejal is directed by Imtiaz Ali and only recently revealed it's title. It releases on August 4, a week ahead of schedule.
