Actor Ayushmann Khurrana says his upcoming film “Manmarziyan” with Bhumi Pednekar may show them in completely different looks but their chemistry will bring alive the same magic it did in “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”.
“Dum Laga Ke Haisha” chronicled the love story between an overweight girl (Bhumi) and a small town simpleton boy, played by Ayushmann.
When asked if “Manmarziyan” will have the same magical chemistry, Khurrana told PTI, ” We are so different in this one. I am not a simpleton, Bhumi is not fat. We are in totally different avatars. The film and the milieu is different. But I am sure the magic will be there.”
“Manmarziyan” is helmed by Sameer Sharma, who made his directorial debut with “Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana”.
The project is produced by “Tanu Weds Manu Returns” director Aanand L Rai.
The “Vicky Donor” star, who has earlier lent his voice to popular songs like “Paani Da Rang”, “Sadi Gali” and “Mitti Di Khushboo”, said if given a chance he would love to sing in the upcoming Punjab-set love story.
“I don’t know, we have to lock our songs first or start the shooting first. But I would love to sing for ‘Manmarziyan’. In ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, it was a deliberate effort not to sing because that character was not suited to sing,” he said.
