While both Sonakshi and Ranveer Singh bagged the best debutant awards at various funcitons together, they both seemed to have different plans while chooising their co-stars. Sonakshi was happy working with stars like Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar and shied away from working with the younger breed. When quizzed on this, Sonakshi is her cool, composed and bubbly laugh in her voice commented, “When I worked with seniors, I was told that I am too young for them. And now when I am working with Ranveer, I am asked why I am doing films with a newcomer”.

Quite composed in her dealings with the media, one cannot but comment that the spate of link-ups, denials and stories circulated recently involving the duo lead actor pair in the media was adding fuel to the fire. Curiosity has been created to fuel the pairing and having Ranveer steer away from his link-up with Anoushka. Did we hear Sonakshi say, “Khamosh” in true Shotgun ishtyle?

Through Phantom they want to bring a quantum change  in the way the industry functions and want to bring in talent that they believe in.

The production house was floated by four prominent filmmakers, namely Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena with an objective of making content-based films and nurturing the budding talent. “It is a love story. The film is a period film that is set in the 1950’s

They also announced their first film, Lootera. Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane of Udaan fame, starring Ranvir Singh and Sonakshi Sinha which along with the Phanton Production House will also be co-produced by Balaji Telefilms.

Lootera, the first ever product by the four noted filmmakers, will be directed by Vikramaditya Motwani. under the banner will show Ranveer as the title suggests Lootera and Sonakshi as a Bengali beauty in the female lead which is set to go on the floor by December end. ‘Lootera’, written and directed by Vikramaditya Motwane of ‘Udaan’ fame, is the maiden venture of the newly floated production house, Phantom.
