According to the reports Ayushmann was approached by Imtiaz with the script a month back. However, the ‘Bala’ actor turned down the offer because; he has planned to take a four-month break from work after his films ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhaan’. Along with Ayushmann even Kartik Aaryan was considered as a strong contender for this film.
On the work front, Ayushmann will be seen soon in ‘Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhaan’ where he will be seen romancing another man. He will also be seen sharing the screen with Amitabh Bachchan for the first time in ‘Gulabo Sitabo’.
On the other hand, Imtiaz is gearing up for his next ‘Aaj Kal’ which stars Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan. The film will be releasing on Valentine ’s Day 2020.
