Ayushmann Khurrana and Abhishek Kapoor are coming together for a yet-to-be-titled romantic drama. It will have the actor in the role of a cross-functional athlete.
Khurrana, who has played diverse roles in his Bollywood career, will undergo a physical transformation for the film. Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor, after directing hit films like Rock On, Kai Po Che and Kedarnath, promises to present Khurrana in a never-seen-before avatar in the romantic drama.
“Ayushmann and I are both known for a certain kind of cinema and this film is definitely a special one for both of us,” Kapoor said in a statement.
Ayushmann Khurrana said, “Abhishek has a very distinct voice in cinema today,” and added that their film, “has all the trappings to take audiences through a ride of emotions and it is a total family entertainer. It is a beautiful, progressive love story that will also touch your hearts.”
Last seen along with Amitabh Bachchan in Gulabo Sitabo, the 35-year-old actor is excited about his physical transformation for the movie. “I’m supremely excited about the physical transformation that I will have to undergo. It will present me in an all-new avatar. I have never looked like this on-screen. The process is going to be intense and excruciating for me but I feel all the pain will be worth it.”
The romantic drama will go on floors in October and will be shot in North India. It will hit theaters in 2021.
