Ayushmann Khurrana, a name synonymous with versatility and box office success, continues to keep audiences guessing with his upcoming projects. After charming viewers in “Dream Girl 2” alongside Ananya Panday, he’s set to transform himself into the legendary Indian cricketer Sourav Ganguly for a biopic produced by Luv Films. This ambitious project isn’t the only exciting venture on Khurrana’s horizon. Reports suggest he’s also signed on for a horror-comedy film with director Anees Bazmee.

A Spooky and Hilarious Collaboration

Titled “Bhootiyapa,” this upcoming collaboration promises a unique blend of chills and laughter. The film aims to offer audiences a fresh cinematic experience by merging these contrasting genres. According to a report in Mid-Day, Khurrana and Bazmee are currently in discussions to finalize the details of “Bhootiyapa.”

Scheduling Challenges and Upcoming Projects

While the Khurrana-Bazmee collaboration is confirmed, their busy schedules pose a logistical hurdle. Director Bazmee is reportedly planning to begin work on the much-anticipated sequel to “No Entry” later this year. A source revealed that both the actor and director are trying to find a window to film “Bhootiyapa” amidst their packed schedules. Bazmee is currently engrossed in shooting “Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3,” starring Kartik Aaryan, Vidya Balan, and Triptii Dimri. Khurrana, on the other hand, is deeply invested in portraying Sourav Ganguly in the biopic, highlighting the demanding schedules for both parties.

A Stellar Filmography

Ayushmann Khurrana’s journey in Bollywood began in 2012 with Shoojit Sircar’s critically acclaimed film “Vicky Donor.” His debut role, alongside Yami Gautam, garnered widespread praise and established him as a rising star. Khurrana has since built an impressive filmography, consistently captivating audiences with his diverse portrayals. From the lighthearted romance of “Dum Laga Ke Haisha” to the social commentary of “Bala” and “Dream Girl,” he has tackled a wide range of genres. Films like “Badhaai Ho,” “Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan,” “Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui,” and “Gulabo Sitabo” further demonstrate his exceptional acting range. With both a cricket biopic and a horror-comedy in the pipeline, Ayushmann Khurrana promises to continue surprising and entertaining audiences in the years to come.
