Always known for taking up different and challenging roles, actor Ayushmann Khurrana has added yet another interesting project to his repertoire. If reports are to be believed, the Andhadhun (2018) actor has been signed on to play the male lead in Ekta Kapoor’s forthcoming venture, titled Googly.

Joining Khurrana in the quirky comedy will be Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018) fame actress Nushrat Bharucha. The actors, who started their acting careers around the same time, have not worked together before. Googly will mark their first onscreen collaboration.

To be made under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures, Googly will be directed by debutant Raaj Shaandilyaa who has previously written such films as Welcome Back (2015) and Bhoomi (2017).

A source from Balaji Motion Pictures divulges that Googly is a unique comedy film. We also hear that Ayushmann plays a character that has some speech issues and hence, he will not be seen talking in his normal voice in the movie.

Meanwhile, Ayushmann Khurrana is gearing up for the release of his next, Badhaai Ho, scheduled to hit screens on 18th October, 2018.
