Last seen in Sajid Nadiadwala’s comic caper ‘Housefull 3’ (2016), actor Abhishek Bachchan has started shooting for his next film ‘Manmarziyan’, which is being helmed by acclaimed filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. Touted to be a romcom, the film also stars Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles.
Early on Thursday morning, Abhishek took to his Twitter handle and shared a photograph of the script of the film. “Almost time… ‘Manmarziyan’,” the actor captioned the image. Since Abhishek has been away from the big screen for more than a year now, he seems quite excited about his next venture.
‘Manmarziyan’ has gone through several changes in its cast and crew over the last few years. The film was planned in 2015 with Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar. However, the project could not take off on time due to various reasons followed which both the lead actors bowed out of it.
After Ayushmann and Bhumi opted out of the film, the parts fell into Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu’s lap. ‘Manmarziyan’ was expected to be directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, but she got busy with ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ (2017) and the project was then offered to Anurag Kashyap.
The film is being presented by Aanand L Rai who is producing it under his banner, Colour Yellow Productions.
