Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar had earlier signed Aanand L Rai’s Manmarziyan with Sameer Sharma as the director. But because their creative processes and thinking didn’t meet, the project was shelved and Bhumi went on to sign films like Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan while Khurrana had Bareilly Ki Barfi and SMS this year.
Earlier, Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal had been finalised as two of the three leads and now the love triangle is completed by Dulquer Salmaan who is a huge star down south. Salmaan is also gearing up for his Hindi debut with Akash Khurana’s Karwaan which also features Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar.
Manmarziyan will finally be directed by Anurag Kashyap and will go on floors early next year, mostly in Himachal Pradesh.
