The film is touted to be a love story, and will feature Ayushmann Khurrana as a cross-functional athlete. The actor is reportedly undergoing a major physical transformation for the role.
Pragya says that her long-time dream to associate with Bhushan has come true with this film. “We are starting our journey with this wonderful love story. It has a beautiful soundtrack, very different from what Abhishek has done before. Bhushan ji has been very encouraging and we are committed to delivering high-quality content together,” she said in a statement.
“I’m glad to associate with Pragya for this unconventional love story that Abhishek will create with the fresh jodi Ayushmann and Vaani, two extremely talented artists. It’s always been a pleasure working with Ayushmann and with this film, he will yet again surprise the audience with his work,” Bhushan said.
The untitled film will reportedly begin filming in October and is slated for release next year.
It is also learned that Pragya and Bhushan will team up for two more projects one of which is said to be based on the Pulwama of 2019. The shocking incident saw a convoy of vehicles carrying security personnel on the Jammu Srinagar National Highway attacked by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber at Lethpora in the Pulwama district, Jammu and Kashmir, India.
