“In ‘Manmarziyan’, I’m playing a Punjabi, so I’ve grown a beard for it. The film is going to start in February,” said Ayushmann on the last day of the Khidkiyaan festival where he sang many of his hit songs.

“I’m shooting in Punjab for the first time. In ‘Vicky Donor’, he was a Punjabi from Delhi, but here he is a proper Punjabi. There is no ‘Dillipan’ in this, it has full ‘Punjabiyat’ in the film, and it is a proper romance from the soil of Punjab,” he added.

The film stars his “Dum Laga Ke Haisha” co-star Bhumi Pednekar and will be directed by Sameer Sharma, who had previously directed “Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana”. It will be produced by “Tanu Weds Manu Returns” director Anand L. Rai.

Bhumi who played an overweight character in her debut film, has shed all the excess weight for the film, as seen in numerous award shows this year. She also is learning Punjabi. The film will also have a second male lead, for which the hunt is currently on. Music is by Amit Trivedi.

Ayushmann was last seen in the single “Yahin Hoon Main” which was sung as well as co-composed by him.
