Both Ayushmann and Bhumi had shot for about 10 days in Amritsar for Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan. However, the shoot was scrapped due to a clash between the director and the producer. It was then shot with Vicky Kaushal, Taapsee Pannu and Abhishek Bachchan and received good response at the box office.
Bhumi just saw the trailer release of another film Sonchiriya. She plays a woman from rural India in the film that also stars Sushant Singh Rajput as the lead. Actor Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey and Ashutosh Rana also play important roles in the film.
Ayushmann, on the other hand, recently shared the poster of his next film, Dream Girl. The actor can be seen wearing a sari while sitting on a bike on the film’s poster. Nushrat Bharucha of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety fame will be seen as the female lead in the film.
