It seems that the 'Badhai Ho' actor is super excited to start the Kanpur schedule of the much-awaited film.

In the film, Ayushmann will play the role of a man who balds maturely and Bhumi will play the role of a dusky small-town girl at odds with a society that is obsessed with fair skin.

According to Indian film critic Taran Adarsh, the film also stars Saurabh Shukla, Jaaved Jaaferi, and Seema Pahwa.

Ayushmann and Bhumi have earlier co-starred in blockbusters like 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' and 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.'

The upcoming film marks their third collaboration together.

Ayushmann is also reuniting with his 'Vicky Donor' co-star Yami Gautam. 'Vicky Donor' marked the Bollywood debut for both the actors.

The film produced by Dinesh Vijan and directed by Amar Kaushik is expected to hit the big screen in September 2019.
