With Manmarziyan in jeopardy, Ayushmann Khurrana gives his dates to YRF’s Meri Pyari Bindu in which he stars opposite actress Parineeti Chopra.
It was he who told me about the award. Sharat, too, had no idea. Magic happens when you don’t expect anything from life. Last year we had some amazing movies like Piku, Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Masaan.
Some were critically acclaimed, some others did great commercially. I had no expectations. This was a very special film and it gave me more credibility than any other film — I truly arrived as an actor with this movie.
He confirmed the news saying, “Yes my dates for Manmarziyan have now been allotted to Meri Pyari Bindu. I will also be going to the US for my gigs.”
The busy actor has many reasons to smile, now that his last release Dum Lagaa Ke Haisha has won the National Award for the best Hindi movie. I was in the gym when my father called to congratulate me.
The film Meri Pyaari Bindu is being made under the Yash Raj banner. It was supposed to go on the floors in May, but now the shoot has been pushed ahead and it will start in mid-April itself.
The film stars Parineeti Chopra opposite Ayushmann Khurrana. It will be produced by Maneesh Sharma and debutant Akshay Roy will be directing it.
Ayushmann Khurrana, who was shooting for Aanand L. Rai’s Manmarziyan, has given those dates to another movie titled Meri Pyaari Bindu.
The shoot of Rai’s movie has stopped now as the director’s vision is not aligning with that of the producer, so some changes need to be made.
