After a successful directorial debut with the Swara Bhaskar starrrer Nil Battey Sannata, Ashwini Iyer Tiwari is all set with her two upcoming films. While on one hand, she has taken over from Sameer Sharma for Anand L. Rai’s Manmarziyaan, starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar, Ashwini has already set eyes for her third film. Produced by Junglee Pictures and BR Studios, her next outing is a film titled Bareily Ki Barfi, starring Ayushmann again along with Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao!
Ayushmann Khurrana Starrer, Bareily Ki Barfi To Have Kriti Sanon
According to reports, the film is a simple rom-com set along the premise of Uttar Pradesh. The movie revolves around Ayushmann, who owns a printing press, Rajkumar who is an author, and Kriti who is a liberated UP girl. When Kapil Chopra from the BR studios was quizzed about a quirky title, he said that in the movie, Kriti’s family owns a mithai shop in Uttar Pradesh. Since that’s where the story takes off, it seemed fair enough to name the film accordingly.
Apaprently, the three actors will go through a workshop in September, after which they will start shooting in the first week of October. Currently, the Vicky Donor actor has just returned after a successful music tour with singer Sunidhi Chauhan and is currently working on his next film, Meri Pyaari Bindu, opposite Parineeti Chopra. Ayushmann is also busy with his upcoming single titled Halka Halka, featuring actress Amy Jackson.
On the other hand, the Heropanti actress just finished the Mauritius schedule of Dinesh Vijan’s Raabta, opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. Meanwhile the Aligarh actor was busy juggling between Ramesh Sippy’s Shimla Mirch, Vikramaditya Motwane’s next, and Amit Masurkar’s Newton. As a matter of fact, Ashwini’s husband, Nitesh Tiwari is currently busy in directing the Aamir Khan starrer anticipated movie, Dangal.
It will be exciting to see three talented actors come along with a critically acclaimed director for a film that already has such an unconventional title.
