Actor Vaani Kapoor is set to start filming for director Abhishek Kapoor's next film in Chandigarh. Described as a "progressive love story", the film will also feature Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana. Vaani, who recently wrapped up the shoot of Akshay Kumar-starrer "Bellbottom", is all charged up to collaborate with Abhishek, best known for movies like "Rock On!!", "Kai Po Che" and "Kedarnath". "It’s a lovely heart-rendering film. I have always wanted to work with Abhishek Kapoor, being so inspired by his films this feels like an amazing opportunity to be part of his vision," Kapoor said in a statement.
The movie marks her first collaboration with Ayushmann and she hailed him as one of the most talented actors of the country. "Ayushmann is one of the most talented actors of our generation and I’m only thrilled about our first film together to be this beautiful love story," Vaani added.
This is the first time Vaani will share screen space with Ayushmann. About working with Abhishek Kapoor, she added: "I have always wanted to work with Abhishek Kapoor, being so inspired by his films. This feels like an amazing opportunity to be part of his vision."
About casting Vaani as Ayushmann's love interest, Abhishek said: "I thought Vaani was fabulous in ‘Befikre'. She is beautiful and a very committed actor. I am looking forward to having her and Ayushmann on set. I believe the combo will be electrifying."
The actor will follow all the quarantine processes before beginning the shoot. The untitled film is set to hit cinema halls in 2021.
On the other hand, Vaani Kapoor, teamed up with Akshay Kumar for the first time for their upcoming film Bell Bottom. Directed by Ranjit M Tewari, the film is set in the 1980s and is about one of India's forgotten heroes. Without divulging details about her role in the espionage-thriller, Vaani said she hopes her character strikes a chord with the audiences. "I play a pivotal part and I’m thrilled that it’s a role that will allow me to deliver something new to the audiences.”
