Only yesterday we had informed you about 'Band Baaja Baraat' famed director Maneesh Sharma's new find, Bhumi Pednekar. Now we reveal the name of the project, in which the newbie will share screen with Ayushmann Khurrana.
Titled as 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha', this is Maneesh Sharma's first independent production venture under the Yash Raj Films banner. Directed by Sharat Katariya, 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' revolves around the life of a small town couple - Prem, played by extremely talented Ayushmann and Sandhya, debutant Bhumi Pednekar. From overcoming his fear of the English language to dealing with an overbearing father, Prem (Ayushmann Khurrana) discovers that his oversized and mismatched wife, Sandhya (Bhumi Pednekar), who he thought was a spanner in his business and life, will actually lead him to something quite cool.
On the perfect casting of Bhumi, Maneesh Sharma who has a winning streak of working with successful debutants Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor said, "For the films I have directed, Bhumi has been working closely in the casting process as an integral part of YRF's Casting Division and many a times doubled as an actor to conduct auditions with the prospective talent. In the process I saw her enacting various roles and it was obvious what a brilliant talent she is!"
'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' is currently under production and is slated for a 2014 release.
