It’s lights, camera and action for “Manmarziyan”. Actors Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar, who were paired opposite each other in “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”, have started shooting for their upcoming project here.
“Beardo and the weirdo! That’s the character of Bhumi in this film. Ahem. Roll the cam. Mall Road, Shimla,” Ayushmann posted on Twitter on Friday.

Ayushmann had earlier shared that he will be seen playing a Punjabi in “Manmarziyan”, and has also grown a beard for it.
Bhumi, who made her way into Bollywood in a pudgy avatar in “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”, has shed the extra ounces for the role and will be seen with a svelte figure. She is also learning Punjabi for the film.
