Abhishek Kapoor, the brilliant director of successful movies like Rock On!!, Kai Po Che and Kedarnath is now joining hands with the poster boy of the content cinema in India, Ayushmann Khurrana, for his next film. The film has not been titled yet, but it is a love story that will touch audiences’ hearts. It is set in North India and it will begin its shooting schedule in October.

Abhishek says, “Ayushmann and I are both known for a certain kind of cinema and this film is definitely a special one for both of us. We want audiences to come back to the theatres and watch movies as a community and for that, we will spare no effort. We strive to bring our best game for this one.”


The film-maker has revealed that he is going to present Ayushmann in a completely new avatar in which he is never seen before. Abhishek says, “Ayushmann plays a cross-functional athlete in the film and he will have to go through a physical transformation that he hasn’t done before. It’s quite a challenge and he’s very committed to it.”

Talking about Ayushmann, he is excited about working with Abhishek and is looking forward to his physical transformation. “Abhishek has a very distinct voice in cinema today and I’m glad that we finally got the opportunity to collaborate on a project that’s exceedingly close to my heart. This 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,” he says.

Ayushmann, who has given birth to a genre in Hindi movies called ‘The Ayushmann Khurrana Genre’, through his choice of films also said, “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 and I’m looking forward to seeing the reaction of audiences. The process is going to be intense and excruciating for me but I feel all the pain will be worth it.”

The film is supposed to release worldwide in theatres next year.
