The movie is on track, says the director
Dum Laga Ke Haisha came with the fresh pairing of Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar in 2015. Audience instantly fell in love with the cute on-screen couple. Soon, Manmarziyan was announced by producer Anand L Rai, which reunited the two actors, and fans rejoiced. Recently, the romantic film was rumoured to be in developmental hell, but the new director on-board for the film refutes the reports.
Also, Manmarziyan is said to have only halted shooting because of Monsoon season all over the country that can hamper with the plot setting of the film.
Earlier, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana director Sameer Sharma was involved with Manmarziyan. But due to creative differences between him and Rai, Sharma dropped out of the project. Rai then roped in Nil Battey Sannata fame director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari for the movie. Ashwini speaking about the development on the film spoke to a news daily. “Ayushmann hasn’t abandoned the film. Also, we will start shooting by mid-September or early October once he finishes his other film with Parineeti Chopra.” she said. Ayushmann is busy shooting Meri Pyaari Bindu. Well, we are eager to know how things shape up for Manmarziyan with the new talent on board.
Ashwini further added they won’t using the portions that have already been shot, but instead will start shooting from scratch. “We aren’t going to use any portions which have already been shot and plan to start afresh.” she told the news daily. Now that does sound like a bit of a set back, as we know half of the film has been shot already. We just hope the shooting of the film resumes soon, and we get to the awesomeness of Bhumi and Ayushmann together!
