Mumbai,  Actress Swara Bhaskar is all set to surprise audience once again with her unique avatar of an erotic singer in “Anaarkali of Aarah” as director Karan Johar unveiled the film’s poster today on Twitter.

Its always a pleasure to watch and experience a heartland story that engages and entertains in equal measure. ‘Anaarkali of Aaraah’ is one such story,” Karan said of the film in a statement.

“Well done @ReallySwara for constantly breaking ground!! 24th march is the date guys! For this new world and engaging film!!!”

To which she replied, “Many many thanks Karan!! The wait is over guys. Here is the first official poster of #AnaarkaliofAarah unveiled by the inimitable #KJo.”
